Kyle S. Co-host

Groupmuse is turning 10 this year, and we hope you’ll join to celebrate this watershed with us!

We're in for a huge experience ranging from the lush chamber music sounds of a sonata, piano trio, and string quartet all the way to the unique expression of modern Carnatic music, with more surprises along the way: We’ll have meditative deep listening, circle singing for those who feel called to join, and we’ll end with an absolutely ecstatic dance party, courtesy of Māh Ze Tār, who fuses traditional Eastern music with modern electronic as a form of cultural preservation and celebration.

A truly cross-coastal celebration, this Massivemuse features cellist Dara Hankins and pianist Kyle Walker from NYC in collaboration with Bay Area musicians Mélanie Clapiès, Alexandra Simpson, and James Jaffe.

This eclectic program will be featuring the musical worlds of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, George Walker, Pauline Oliveros, and Anjna Swaminathan.


Anjna Swaminathan-Roper | A Blessed Flame
Samuel Coleridge-Taylor | from Five Negro Melodies for Piano Trio

--- Intermission ---

Adolphus Hailstork | from Eslanda Dances for String Trio
George Walker | Lyric for String Quartet
George Walker | Sonata for Cello and Piano
Pauline Oliveros | Deep Listening

--- Māh Ze Tār set! ---

Can you tell me about the parking for this? I would be driving and have had some difficulty finding parking in that area...thanks. Loretta O'Connell

My parking luck has been decent at meters on 9th st *considering* it's Civic Center/SOMA which could be a challenging baseline. There are several public garages in the area too, and it's a quick walk from Civic Center BART. Cheers, James

Generally parking on the major streets around the museum is easy. This is except for the front street.
