Musical Days in Forest Hill – 2014 – a unique neighborhood chamber music festival unlike anything else in San Francisco! Many of you will recall past Musical Days concerts produced by our neighbors Mari Kodama Nagano and Maestro Kent Nagano. Though the Naganos moved from the neighborhood a few years ago, they retain a special fondness for our community, and have continued to present their exquisite musical gift to us in the intimacy of the Forest Hill clubhouse.

This year, the festival will take place Thursday August 21st through Sunday August 24th. There will be concerts each of the four evenings and a special children’s concert on Sunday midday.

This is an opportunity for Forest Hill neighbors and friends to experience a rare musical tradition - one more typically reserved for musicians and their closest friends, and in earlier times, for European royalty. This year’s theme will be “Poets of the Violin.” Outstanding virtuosi of the violin, viola, cello and piano will treat us to chamber music that draws heavily on the French and German repertoires. We hope you will join us!

The musicians perform as friends of the Naganos and for the love of music. They stay with host families in the neighborhood. While their performances are a gift to the Forest Hill community, there are still expenses to be covered, defrayed in part by ticket sales. These include airfare, program and ticket printing, piano moving and tuning costs, and post-performance refreshments.

Musical Days in Forest Hill is a non-profit organization. We welcome your tax-deductible donations
