Classical Concert: Mu Phi Epsilon Presents Saxophonist Keith Bohm
May 14, 2017
Celebrate Mother's Day with a performance highlighting the Crocker's permanent collection of American modern art and the exhibition JapanAmerica: Points of Contact, 1876-1970, Saxophonist Keith Bohm and pianist John Cozza present a program of virtuosic works for classical saxophone and piano by American and Japanese composers. Known for their “expressive playing” (San Francisco Classical Voice), Mu Phi Epsilon offer a wonderful opportunity to discover new, international sounds. Space is limited and advance registration is recommended.
For more than 50 years, the Crocker has proudly presented
it’s Classical Concert Series, a monthly concert featuring the finest musicians
and singers from around the region and across the world. Performances are
50-minute concerts that draw a connection to the art on view at the Museum and
offer audiences a chance to hear a variety of classical music, from Baroque to
contemporary. Performers are selected by the Crocker’s Classical Concert Music
Board based on experience, quality of proposed program, and, most importantly,
talent and musicianship.
In advance of the Classical Concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of the exhibitions JapanAmerica: Points of Contact, 1876-1970 and the works of American modern art from the Crocker's permanent collection, to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
