I’m excited to announce this Saturday’s world premiere of my composition for seven clarinets entitled LOS ALTOS Y LOS BAJOS performed by Blackwood of Foothill Symphonic Winds. Just when you thought one agony pipe was enough! I will be speaking to the audience just before they start blowing so please come heckle me! This will also be the launch of the CHAMBER MUSIC division of my ALL HANDS ON DECK publishing company. Copies of the score will be available for purchase at the concert and, of course, online. Boooya!

The Theatre darling…..

I’m also very excited to announce two theatre productions that I had nothing to do with happening September 2nd: Backyard Burning Men of a Certain Age in Hyattsville, MD and Fringe of the Woods Festival in Cali, both on the same weekend….I’ve split myself in half and am attending both….I wish!

Further down the road…I’ve been asked to perform with pianists Allison Lovejoy and Kymry Esainko Saint Saens’ ‘Carnival of the Animals’ at Flower Piano in GG Park 3-4pm, September 17th.

On October 16th I’ll be at Headlands Center for the Arts in a solo performance in The Gym, 1pm in celebration of their 40th Anniversary. Honored to be invited to perform at our jewel across the bridge.

My neighbor, friend, and comrade in music David James continues his work on his beautiful SF Arts Commissioned MISSION REBELS. With the stellar GPS we’ll be presenting part II on October 16th, 7pm at luscious Glen Park’s Bird n’ Beckett Bookstore.

November 4th I’ll be at the Joe Henderson Lab at SF Jazz…..more soon about that gig!

Yours,

Beth

Thanks everyone for your kind generosity in helping me buy a new car, I’ve got wheels…and it’s a good thing because I’m performing again!

Oakland Columbarium: Garden of Memory

On Tuesday, June 21st, 5-9pm I’ll be at the annual Garden of Memory event with the venerable guitarist/composer Will Bernard. We’ll be performing in the Sanctuary of Dawn and look forward in seeing you there. Please get your tickets in advance as this very popular show will sellout.

Also on June 21st, 4pm will be the premiere of The Impresario! as part of the Frameline Film Festival. A very cool film I scored by Lauretta Molitor that celebrates the life of Marc Huestis. I worked briefly in the late 80’s with Marc at Karen Larsen Associates office. I’m so glad that this SF treasure is being given his own screen time, the story is compelling and lovely.

I’m very lucky to be a part of a burgeoning scene at The New Farm where almost every weekend there is live, outdoor, free music. Be sure and check it out. You can hike at Heron’s Head, wander through two gorgeous plant nurseries, and hear all kinds of music in The Farm’s outdoor music pavilion. Check it out!

October 15th David James‘s GPS will be at Bird and Beckett Bookstore. Always a treat to perform with this stellar group at my fav bookstore/venue! We will be presenting material from David’s Mission Rebels project.

I’m thrilled to announce on November 4th, 2022 I’ll be at @ SF Jazz Center 7pm & 8:30pm. Get your tickets here!

Cheers!

An arsonist destroyed my beloved 1997 Jeep at 3am last night. Please help me buy a new junker so I can get to my gigs.

No donation too small.

Thanks for your help.

After so many months of being in hibernation I’m thrilled to report that Eighty Mile Beach released a song that Christian Jones and I wrote in Prague during my Agosto Residency and it made it on the Beatport list at #23! Have a listen!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope everyone is doing well. I’ll be a one woman band in an outdoor theatre production for one performance of Wee Three Kings, September 5th. Check under my gigs for the address. It’s about an hour and a half north of Los Angeles. We’ll be rehearsing the week prior in LA. Chris Brophy wrote the play and will be directing. We’ve got some amazing actors in Mike McShane, Curt Morgan, and Brian Lohmann. I hope you’ll make it out!

Hey there! It’s been a minute….jeez! I hope you’re all doing well in these strange times.

I have some news to share, the Judith Ehrlich film I scored The Boys Who Said No! has it’s US premiere tonight for 6 days at the Mill Valley Film Festival. I’m super proud of this film and ever grateful to William Farley for recommending me. I’m now putting the final touches on the score for Farley’s film I Wanted To Be A Man With A Gun. Thanks to everyone who contributed financially to either of these films. They are gems!

Cathy Lee Crane’s very cool film Crossing Columbus is up for a free screening. Another work I’m very proud of. A beautiful meditation on border life. Don’t miss it!

Trance Mission released it’s CD March 13th…..then all concerts were cancelled due to you-know-what…..check out Le Pendu if you haven’t already, write to me if you’d like to buy a CD, I think it’s possibly my best release ever.

These past few months I scored Lauretta Molitor’s film ‘Impresario’, a sweet doc about force of nature filmmaker/social activist Mark Huestis. I’ll post more info on screenings for that once it’s released.

Be well, be safe, carry on….and VOTE!!!

peace,

Beth
