- AVE (Artist's Vocal Ensemble) sings a program called California Fusion, which looks at music that has influenced California's musical palette. I do not recognize any of the composers listed in the press release as a Californian, but they're a varied bunch! Poulenc, Vaughn Williams, Sixten, Gesualdo, "and others." They're performing at St. Mark's, Berkeley, on Friday, May 29 at 8 p.m. and St. Ignatius, San Francisco, on Saturday, May 30 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20/$10.
