Whole Sol Festival / Del Sol Quartet

Friday, November 17: It’s Our Party

For its 25th anniversary season, San Francisco's own Del Sol Quartet will present three concerts celebrating California’s distinct musical legacy of unfettered invention, openness, cultural inclusion, and innovation.

With special audience participation in Gyan Riley’s piece for quartet and ukuleles, “It’s Our Party” features three world premieres — by young Turkish composer Erberk Eryilmaz, who brings the irresistible energy of his native folk music to the concert stage; Theresa Wong, a brilliant Berkeley-based composer/improviser, who explores the resonances of just intonation; and Gyan Riley, whose new piece for quartet features an audience-participation ukulele choir. This evening also includes electronic soundscapes and visuals by composer Daniel Wohl.

Join the ukulele choir – which will premiere Gyan Riley’s new piece.
