The Traveling Alphabet

"A" will be in Sebastopol. On January 10th we will kick off this series at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts. Some of the composers? Arne, Arensky, Arriaga, Abel, Ariosti and a longtime favorite.....Anon.
In making lists of composers some letters have been surprisingly difficult! "N" for example. Nielsen of course...but who else? And "Q"we will have to pair with either R or P because we will NOT have an all Quantz concert!!
This is getting quite curious!

The Next Project!

We're planning a concert series for 2010-2011. Just a little project.....24 concerts in 2 years. Actually a romp thru the alphabet. January of 2010 will have all composers whose name starts with A, February B, etc.

The concerts will be at different venues, with different artists, and might be anything from period instruments to mini-operas, to different classical ensembles.

AND. Here's the good part. At every concert we will distribute cards with the letter of the concert. Save them, and whoever has the closest thing to a full alphabet, in December of 2011, will be taken to a meal at Chez Panisse. (2 concerts will double up on letters)

AND. We would love your ideas for venues and repertoire.
