John Cage’s Seven, co-commissioned by SFCMP in 1988, is a still-relevant fragment of the Bay Area’s rich legacy of new music.  The work is scored for flute, clarinet, piano, percussion, violin, viola, and cello without conductor.  SFCMP will commemorate an important moment from our own history by performing this classic work once again for local audiences.

The San Francisco Contemporary Music Players’ Contemporary Insights: Music and Conversation series is devoted to breaking down barriers between listeners and performers to enhance understanding and appreciation of new music. This piece will be performed on the following evening, November 8, at Herbst Theatre as part of the ensemble’s concert Points in Recent History.

This concert is underwritten in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

This season’s concerts are funded in part by: San Francisco Hotel Tax/Grants for the Arts Program; National Endowment for the Arts; the Canada Council for the Arts; Aaron Copland Fund for Music; Alice M. Ditson Fund at Columbia University; The French-American Fund for Contemporary Music, a program of FACE with support from Cultural Services of the French Embassy, CulturesFrance, SACEM and the Florence Gould Foundation; the Fromm Music Foundation; Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation; William and Flora Hewlett Foundation; Istituto Italiano di Cultura; the Ross McKee Foundation; the Ontario Arts Council; Bernard Osher Foundation; Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Arts Council; Consulate General of Switzerland in San Francisco; San Francisco Foundation; Wells Fargo Foundation; and many individual donors.
