A Sweeter Music
Sarah Cahill plays a program from her commissioning project as a benefit for the American Friends Service Committee. She's played some of the works on the program in the Bay Area before (including those by composers Terry Riley, Jerome Kitzke, Kyle Gann, and others) but I believe some are new, including a piece by Pauline Oliveros.
