SFCM: September, 2019

At the end of last month the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (SFCM) announced the plans for its 2019–20 Season. The overall theme of the season will be Music and Nature, but specifics about concert and recital programming have not yet been provided. The best place to find those specifics will be on the Performance Calendar Web page at the SFCM Web site closer to the scheduled dates. The individual event pages will specify whether a concert is free and/or whether a reservation is required. If there will be a charge for admission, there will be a hyperlink to a Web page for purchasing tickets. (There will also be hyperlinks for making reservations for free concerts.) For those who do not already know, the SFCM building is located at 50 Oak Street, between Van Ness Avenue and Franklin Street, a short walk from the Van Ness Muni Station. What follows is a brief summary of the events in September with hyperlinks to the appropriate Web pages.

All other events will take place in the Recital Hall. Finally, the month will conclude with a “Side-by-Side” performance of woodwind chamber music by students playing with faculty members.
