The 2016 Fall Concerts 

Stranger in Paradise, Alexander Borodin’s “Polovetsian Dances”

The Brothers Hazelrigg accompany the California Redwood Chorale(CRC) in the exotic music of Russian composer Alexander Borodin (1833-1887) whose themes from his opera, Prince Igor, were made famous in the 1953 musical “Kismet”.
Singing fearured songs such as “Stranger in Paradise” is Bonnie Brooks. Although CRC will sing selections from other composers, the jewel of this concert will be our director and his brother on two grand pianos playing the original Borodin score as the CRC sings in Russian.
Robert Hazelrigg - director,
John Hazelrigg - accompanist.

When: Saturday, Saturday Oct 15, 7:30pm, Sunday Oct. 16, 4pm

Alphabet Baroque Club

The Alphabet Baroque Club is a lighthearted group that plays seriously beautiful music. Now internationally acclaimed since their appearance at the 2015 Galway (Ireland) Early Music Festival, the ABC performs regularly in the San Francisco Bay Area. The ABC uses historically accurate instruments to explore the music of the baroque in its own sonority, and also happily re-orchestrates pieces to fit the ensemble, another historically accurate practice! The ABC is based in Sonoma County.
Judiyaba, pardessus de viole
Maria Caswell, violin
Gwyneth Davis, viola da gamba
Phebe Craig, harpsichord

When: Friday, Saturday Oct 29
