On Sunday, May 9, 2021, Sarah Cahill, described as “a sterling pianist and an intrepid illuminator of the classical avant-garde” by The New York Times, will perform an hour-long concert as part of HEAR | TOGETHER, a celebration of the return of live music safely, in the open air, and the diverse range of pianists and composers in the Bay Area. Running from 10am – 7pm and presented by a consortium of non- profit performing arts organizations – Alternating Currents, Crowden Music Center, Contemporaneous, and New Music Bay Area – the event will be an outdoor showcase at the Crowden Music Center (1475 Rose St | at the corner of Rose and Sacramento Streets) for pianists Allegra Chapman, Tammy Hall with singer Leberta Lorál, Marcos Silva, Dylan Mattingly, Elizabeth Dorman, Sarah Cahill, Monica Chew, and Robert Fleitz, and students from the Crowden Music Center.
Cahill’s program, beginning at 4pm, features the world premiere of selections from Frederic Rzewski’s Humanitas; unpublished works by Lou Harrison; Paul Dresher’s Two Entwined; as well as works from her project The Future is Female, including Mary Watkins’ Summer Days; Margaret Bonds’ Troubled Water; and Gabriela Lena Frank’s Barcarola Latinoamericana. Paul Dresher will be present to speak about his piece, Two Entwined.
HEAR | TOGETHER is free and open to the public and observant of Covid-19 protocols. In light of the need for social distancing, reservations via Eventbrite will be required and limited to ensure the safety of performers and audience members.
