Each year, SFCMP holds several community events that encourage the exploration of contemporary music in a festive community atmosphere. Our season’s first "in the COMMUNITY" event will feature Cornelius Cardew’s "The Great Learning, Paragraph 7," a group performance experience in which the audience has the opportunity to add their voices in the musical recitation of an ancient Confucian text. The mood and spirit for the evening will be set through a Sonic Meditation by the great Pauline Oliveros. Join us for this evening of deep listening and musical engagement with fellow members of the SFCMP family.  More...
