Coming Up: New Year's Concerts - free

The San Francisco Chamber Orchestra will make your new year's resolution for more culture come true. They're offering three FREE concerts around the new year. 

These star Jon Nakamatsu (Van Cliburn gold medalist) on piano, and this season's debut artist, 17-year old double bassist Jared Pabilona in:   

     Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Overture to The Marriage of Figaro 
     Giovanni Bottesini: Double Bass Concerto No. 2 in B minor 
     Camille Saint-Saëns: Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor 

According to the SFCO, "Mozart, Bottesini and Saint-Saëns were great virtuosi, writing themselves solo works to promote their double careers as composers and performing artists. Bottesini was considered the Paganini of the double bass, bringing that unwieldy instrument a measure of respect."

Concert dates: 
Dec 29 • Sunday at 3:00 • Nourse Theater, San Francisco
Dec 31 • Tueday at 8:00 • First Congregational Church, Berkeley
Jan 1 • Wedmesday at 3:00 • First Palo Alto United Methodist Church
