Cool Grey City: Part 3

“Cool Grey City” is a concert series which features a newly commissioned work written by Bay Area composer, Nick Benavides, and video showcasing San Francisco's public spaces captured by AJ+ video producer, Maggie Beidelman. This project focuses on the intersection of music and hidden spaces of San Francisco and will be featured in three separate performances. There is a reason the phrase, "I left my heart in San Francisco", exists. Sure - cable cars, Fisherman's Wharf and tiny squares of Ghirardelli Chocolate are all delightful - but are they the reason so many people quote this phrase?

Jane Spencer Mills sings "The Artist" - two David Thomas Lloyd Songs

Modern songs with a fanciful bent: There will be fairies, griffins and scarecrows; John Glenn and Houdini make a magical appearance. Cats pad back and forth and rain washes over the whole.


The music is new and melodic, evocative and lovely. Come meet the composers and hear what will be the new cannon for contemporary art song!
