San Francisco Chamber Orchestra: Family Concerts

The World of Percussion

The oldest musical instrument is the rock; even Paleolithic Man couldn’t resist the urge to tap them together and start getting a groove on! Meet three of the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra’s team of crack percussionists, those versatile musicians in the back of the orchestra handling everything from a bass drum and cymbals to a thundersheet and crotales. Guaranteed to astound you, and probably make things a bit noisier around the house for a while.

Family Concert: Music from the Mediterranean

Music from the Mediterranean
Featuring Kaila Flexer & Gari Hegedus

Come with us to the cradle of civilization to explore the lively, lilting music of Turkey and Greece and to hear new music inspired by these traditions. Your guides, Kaila Flexer (fiddle) and Gari Hegedus (oud, saz, and other stringed instruments) of the musical duo Teslim, join the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra for an exciting program with unusual instruments, rhythms, and scales that will likely have you dancing in the isles—ahem, aisles.
