SFBaroque is American Bach's newest innovation in audience performance experiences. An offshoot of the core of American Bach Soloists, the group's name represents both the new ensemble's musicians and a bold new performance style that welcomes non-traditional classical music audiences and all who seek an informal, fun, and dramatically powerful adventure. This season, the events take place in the spectacular Green Room in San Francisco's Herbst Theatre / War Memorial and Performing Arts Center.
Come dressed as your favorite season! And get ready for unforgettable experiences as SFBaroque's violinists will play each of Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" concertos while moving throughout the room, performing some of the wildest music of the Baroque from only an arm's distance away. Specialty cocktails will be designed for the night's theme, and casual cafe-style seating offers easy mingling with the performers.
