More about the concert

Twenty-four amateur musicians divided into six chamber groups have been rehearsing over the course of 6 weeks, one old piece and one brand new piece.  Three Bay Area composers were commissioned to write these brand new pieces of music specifically for each of the chamber groups and one composer was commissioned to write a piece for the entire INTERSECTION  ensemble.  Left Coast Chamber Ensemble members have been coaching these groups and getting them ready for this upcoming intensive weekend and concert.

Thank you to the American Baptist Seminary of the West for the use of their space and the First Baptist Church of Berkeley for sponsoring and assisting us in that venue.

This workshop made possible through grants from the Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation and ACMP-The Chamber Music Network.
