San Francisco Conservatory to stream all of its 2020-21 concerts

Posted on: October 8, 2020

“With its facilities and concert halls closed to the public, the entire 2020–2021 season of concerts at the San Francisco Conservatory are now slated to be streamed online,” writes Michael Zwiebach in Tuesday’s (10/6) San Francisco Classical Voice. “A good student performance is often highly professional. Also, the Conservatory hosts a variety of faculty recitals and other performances throughout the year that are very worth tuning in for. And this is the inaugural year of Edwin Outwater’s tenure as SFCM music director. High on the list this year, for us classical nerds, is the appointment of Jessie Montgomery as artist-in-residence at SFCM…. She is clearly one of the stars of her generation, with commissions abounding from major organizations. [At] an Oakland Symphony concert … last year, Michael Morgan conducted her Banner. Montgomery … will give masterclasses and teach a composition seminar in her year here. Of the 68 concerts streaming this fall, eight performances across genres have been specially chosen to bring audiences an ‘(e)Motion Boost.’ These programs will feature multi-camera HD video in addition to composer interviews, faculty storytelling, trivia factoids, and mini-documentaries on how each program was made.”
