They're at the JCC on California Street....Volti sings music of Estrada, Esmail, Conte, Ruo, and Muehleisen in San Francisco, Mill Valley, and Berkeley, on March 2, 3, and 4; tickets are $25/$20/$10...Also opposite Volti and Other Minds, BluePrint New Music has works by Neil Rolnick, Stefan Cwik, and Philip Glass on March 3 at the SF Conservatory of Music....San Francisco Symphony has five programs in the American Mavericks series; three are symphonic, two chamber. Oh, they've added an upcoming organ concert to the mix because one of Mason Bates's pieces is on it. Those concerts are from March 4 to 18.
