The Da Camera Society presents Chamber Music in Historic Sites- San Gabriel Festival
May 18, 2014 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
A program celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of C.P.E. Bach is performed by a duo who “truly rise to the challenge…exuding a sense of fresh-minted excitement and discovery” (Fanfare Magazine), joined by a flutist of “exceptional and daring virtuosity”. San Gabriel Mission was founded during C.P.E. Bach’s lifetime and the grand, high-ceilinged lobby of the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, now a cultural center for the town, serves as a gracious setting for a period-instrument performance of the composer’s works and those he influenced – from Haydn and Beethoven to court music of Frederick the Great.
San Gabriel Festival: Make a day of your trip to San Gabriel! Enjoy an afternoon exploring San Gabriel’s historic core and bustling new business district – from Mission San Gabriel Arcángel (founded 1771) to its vast array of stores and eateries, all of it merging SoCal diversity and old world charm. Tour the historic San Gabriel Mission Playhouse and listen to its beautifully restored Wurlitzer theater organ (1925)!
This program will take place in the Mission Playhouse lobby and is part of a series of programs from The Da Camera Society. “Experience the excitement of bringing a landmark building to life with outstanding performances, which are themselves enriched by the special luster of their settings…The Da Camera Society — your ticket to a “voyage of discovery”!
