ceramic by anne mcguire archival digital print alkaid remirize jasmine garcia ceramic sculpture by veronica moreira ceramic sculpture by kelsey owens Saturday, March 10th, 5:00-8:00 p.m.: Breath Releasing Energy for Transformation and Healing (a Healing and Happiness method) Workshop includes sharing, B.R.E.T.H.work and food. Benefits of B.R.E.T.H.work: Increased physical, emotional and psychological well-being, increases oxygenation throughout the body, balances the flow of energy through the body, and improves well-being for conditions such as stress, anxiety and depression. Dolphins are connected with the power of breath and with emotional release, which are also both deeply connected. One of the most important factors in spiritual growth is to give ourselves the freedom of fully experiencing our feelings and emotions. Often negative emotions are suppressed, feelings of sadness, pain, anger, grief. During this workshop, individuals can access non-ordinary states of consciousness through their own breath to activate the natural inner healing process which easily integrates into the participants daily life. This gentle process helps release emotional and physical trauma as well as limiting thought patterns…please call or email Marissa Celeste if you would like to attend or are curious about this workshop at 707.499.6917 or www.facebook.com/heldbynature cost: $60

Wednesday March 21st:
SYLVESTRIS QUARTET performs Quartet Metamorphosis, Biber-Beethoven
The dynamic San Francisco Bay Area Quartet performs a program that explores the cyclical transformation and development of the string quartet, all on gut strings with a historical perspective. The program centers around two boundary pushing characters, separated by nearly 150 years: Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber and Ludwig van Beethoven. We think you’ll enjoy hearing this unusual pairing as well as works by Scarlatti, Boccherini, Haydn and Mozart, framed with lively insight! $5-20 sliding scale. Visit sylvestrisquartet.org

Bio Information:

SYLVESTRIS QUARTET is the San Francisco Bay Area’s new historically informed string quartet, performing music from the entire “gut-string era”… that is, from the 17th century up through World War II. Sylvestris in known for programming that explores the cyclical nature of music, looking forward through the veil of history. Violinists Anna Washburn and Tyler Lewis, violist Aaron Westman, and cellist Gretchen Claassen play with many of the nation’s leading period instrument ensembles, including Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, American Bach Soloists, Bach Collegium San Diego, and Agave Baroque, and hold degrees from Juilliard, Indiana University School of Music, Boston University, and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

In the midst of their second season together, Sylvestris just released their first album The Good Song, Fauré in the 1890s featuring baritone Harry Baechtel of Portland State University, pianist Michael Seregow of Washington State University, and an incredibly beautiful 1869 Érard piano. Recently, the quartet has performed on Chamber Music Day and Presidio Sessions—both presented by InterMusic in San Francisco—Barefoot Chamber Concerts in Berkeley, California, and at the University of Oregon. Upcoming performances include four concerts on the Pacific Music Works Underground series in Seattle from March 23rd-27th, 2018, as well as a live performance for a studio audience on 89.9 FM “All-Classical Portland” on March 29th, and a performance at Portland State University on March 30th. The season wraps up with performances on the Resonance and Fifth Street Farms series in Berkeley, California in April and May, and on the Berkeley Early Music Festival Fringe in June. The quartet looks forward (and, westward!) to performing as part of the Hawaii Performing Arts Festival during the summer!

Sylvestris has also teamed up with Agave Baroque and Marin Baroque to present a new concert series in Marin, California called Marin Baroque Presents. www.sylvestrisquartet.org   @sylvestrisfour
