Sunday, February 11, 2024 at 7:00 PM: Music on the Hill Benefit
Join us for an evening of wine, hors d'oeuvres and live music.
The concert will feature two extraordinary musicians from the vocal a cappella Ensemble Chanticleer. Program TBD.
Andy Berry, bass, believes that vocal music is vital because it testifies to the power of collaboration, the importance of the present moment, and the beauty of our shared humanity. He has performed as a soloist with the Santa Fe Opera, the Pittsburgh Opera, the Vietnam National Ballet and Opera Orchestras, and Singapore’s Metropolitan Festival Orchestra. Andy is proud to return to Chanticleer for his fifth season.
Cortez Mitchell, countertenor, completed his Bachelor’s as a double major in both music and mathematics from Morgan State University, and holds an M.M. in voice from the University of Cincinnati's College Conservatory of Music. He was Minnesota Opera's first resident artist countertenor, and has performed with Urban Opera in San Francisco. As a concert artist he has appeared in solo performances with Symphony Silicon Valley, the Dayton Philharmonic, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, in St. Petersburg, Russia, and in Wynton Marsallis's All Rise with the Lincoln Center Jazz Ensemble. Cortez is in his 16th season with Chanticleer.
Also on the program will be the scintillating “ Grand Tango” by Astor Piazzolla performed by cellist Vicky Ehrlich and pianist Ava Soifer. Both are longtime artists-in-residence at Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts. Since 1984 Vicky has been a member of the S.F. Opera Orchestra. In addition, she has played with the S.F. Ballet Orchestra, the S.F. Symphony, the New Century Chamber Orchestra & Composers Inc. Vicky is an active chamber musician performing with many Bay area ensembles including the Ariel Quartet, the Bridge Players & Trio Solano.
The gifted musicians from the Ruth Asawa SOTA string quartet will provide pre-concert music.
The Benefit will take place at a private home in San Francisco TBA.
