Sunday Afternoon Chamber Music: NVCM Presents IOCSF

In case you missed it, Noe Valley Chamber Music has changed venues while Noe Valley Ministry undergoes renovations. The third concert of the 2010-2011 season is Sunday, January 30th (tomorrow), and tickets are still available. All concerts this season are at Holy Innocents Church on Fair Oaks near 26th St.

Sunday's concert features International Orange Chorale of San Francisco, performing "...new music for unaccompanied chamber choir including one of the first performances of new works by Milton Babbitt, Joshua Saulle, and David Harris." (Update: The New York Times just published Milton Babbitt's obituary.)

NVCM's Executive Director Tiffany Loewenberg tells us that "refreshments will be served, and free childcare will be provided. Tickets are $15-$18, children 12 & under free, and can be purchased online at www.nvcm.org, by phone at 415.648.5236 or at the door."

(Tiffany would also like to acknowledge Circle Bank for sponsoring the move of NVCM's Steinway grand piano. The "last hurrah" for the piano before heading to storage will be the February concert featuring pianist Robin Sutherland.)

What: International Orange Chorale of San Francisco in concert at Noe Valley Chamber Music.

When: Sunday, January 30, 2011; 4:00 pm

Where: Holy Innocents Episcopal Church
455 Fair Oaks Street (between 25th and 26th Streets)

It was sad to learn of Milton Babbitt's passing yesterday. He was aware of the plan for the International Orange Chorale group to sing his new work at today's concert. It will be a very moving tribute to Milton - and the IOCSF members are honored to be able to sing in his honor today at such an intimate setting in Noe Valley.
