The concert, titled “Love & Loss” features music exploring the breadth of human emotion – from passion and love to deep sorrow over loss. Alongside works by Mozart and Rossini, you’ll hear Vocare by SF-based composer Jonah Gallagher.
“From the Latin word “to call,” vocare is the root of many words such as evoke, provoke, and invoke – and the piece seeks to use a wide variety of sounds to impact the listener. Vocare came about after a dear friend and mentor of mine finally lost his battle with cancer. He never gave up on me and was willing to have hard conversations about the important things in life. This piece is for him.” – J.M. Gallagher
Please share with friends, family and your network and let’s all come together for a powerful night of music and to raise support for American Cancer Society!
