To Burst To Bloom with Vajra Voices

St. Bede's Episcopal Church
2650 Sand Hill Rd.
Menlo Park, CA 94025
4pm

Vajra Voices presents music of the 14th-century master trouvére Guillaume de Machaut and a new work by Theresa Wong: To Burst, To Bloom on the Arts at St. Bede's Concert Series. In his Le Lai de la Fonteinne, Machaut likens the Trinity to a fountain and lauds the Virgin Mary and the chivalric virtuous practice of loving the unattainable. Wong’s piece is a setting of three poems by the 12th-century female Taoist Immortal, Sun Bu’er intended as meditations on inner alchemy.

Tickets $20 general admission/$15 students & seniors.
Available at the door or in advance.

Theresa Wong / Julia Reidy / Judith Hamann

TAC: Temescal Art Center
511 48th St, Oakland, CA 94609
7:30pm

Australian musicians Julia Reidy and Judith Hamann present solo works in conjunction with cellist/vocalist Theresa Wong.  Reidy weaves intricate and beautiful works out of microtonally tuned 12 string guitar, and is touring in support of her new release "All Is Ablaze."  Hamann performs solo cello focused on micro and macro manifestations of shaking, exploring detailed timbral and partial activity. Wong will perform solo pieces for cello and voice before her upcoming residency at The Stone, drawing upon the question: "how can I rediscover the core of the cello as wood and string and hair, or even simply as a tree?"
