San Francisco Performances welcomes violinist Johnny Gandelsman to St. Mark's Lutheran Church
Western Addition, SF
Fri, February 18, 2022 7:30 PM,
(Ticket sales closed
Feb 18, 11:00 AM PST)
Violinist Johnny Gandelsman’s solo performance pairs the unaccompanied Cello Suite No. 3 by J.S. Bach with newly commissioned works as part of his This Is America project. Celebrating the country’s rich cultural tapestry and myriad perspectives, the program also features composers Clarice Assad, Rhiannon Giddens, Tyshawn Sorey and Conrad Tao. The Boston Globe describes Gandelsman as “a delightfully unconventional fiddler…with a balletic lightness of touch and a sense of whimsy and imagination that are rare.”
Tickets for this performance normally sell for $50, but the Groupmuse community can purchase at a special rate of $20 ($15 for Supermusers)!
