San Francisco, CA - Presidio Sessions with Areon Flutes

PRESIDIO SESSIONS – Friday Feb. 19 at 6 pm

In the intimate atmosphere of a house concert, experience jazz, contemporary, and classical music, and enjoy opportunities to converse with performers and each other.Offered in partnership with the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music.

Noted for innovative programming and collaborations, Areon Flutes creatively engages its audiences with unique staging, theatrics, and choreography, using all members of the flute family. Their 2007 New York debut in Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall received rave reviews: “These players know what kind of new music pleases audiences and critics alike” and “The group itself was memorable; they are a treat to all the senses” (Anthony Aibel, New York Concert Review). They were awarded the Bronze Medal at the 2008 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition – making them as the first prize-winning flute ensemble in the competition’s 35-year history.
