Host

Come join us for a pleasant and relaxing evening to round off a great weekend and leave you well prepared for your busy week ahead. This program, led by Ian Scarfe, a wonderful and versatile pianist who many of you will know from prior Groupmuses at our house, will include music from a number of different composers who have written about or for evening and night time. One of those composers is San Francisco’s Jake Hegge, who has composed some of the most popular operas being performed at major (and minor!) opera houses in the United States and the rest of the world. Jake’s latest opera – It’s a Wonderful Life, based on movie starring Jimmy Stewart – will open at SF Opera later this month. We thought greater familiarity with Jake’s music might increase your pleasure of going to this opera. We live on Bay Street, just across from Fort Mason and a stone’s throw from Fisherman’s Wharf. We're close to everything in downtown SF and many restaurants on Chestnut, Steiner and Union streets. It's relatively easy to get here by bus, and parking is easier than in many SF neighborhoods. We hope this will be a low-key event for a wide range of ages and interests. We'll serve wine, beer and snacks - but feel free to bring something if you'd like. (If you let me know in advance it saves me from buying a few things.) There will be both chair and floor seating.

What's the music?

Amy Foote Soprano
Charles Akert

Nocturnes by Ottorino Respighi, Frederic Chopin, and Claude Debussy.
