Curious Flights: Transatlantic Crossings 2

The new music ensemble Curious Flights has another great program coming up on Saturday, March 19. The concert includes three works by British composer Simon Dobson, who is in residence with the group for a week, plus works by Samuel Adams (the composer, not the founding father), Mason Bates, Robert Chastain,

Here's the program:

Simon Dobson: Crystal for Eight Trumpets                                                                    
Simon Dobson: World Premiere Commission                
            Brenden Guy, clarinet & electronics
 Samuel Adams: Tension Study No. 1                                                        
            Living Earth Show
 Mason Bates: Red River                                                          
            Curious Flights Chamber Ensemble
 Noah Luna: World Premiere Commission                                              
Robert Chastain: Metanoia
Simon Dobson: Another World’s Hell
            San Francisco Wind Ensemble

And here are the concert details:

Saturday, March 19, 2016, 8 p.m.
San Francisco Conservatory of Music, 50 Oak Street, SF
(This is down Van Ness toward Market from the opera house and Davies, if you aren't familiar with the area; the Oak St. address is....misleading.)
Tickets: $20; purchase at the door or at Brown Paper Tickets.

(I'm going to take a moment to plug their May 28 program well in advance, because it will include an arrangement of Korngold's Suite from The Constant Nymph - I can never get enough Korngold - and Blitzstein's Airborne Symphony, which you are not going to get many chances to hear at all. It's opposite my tickets to Carmen, dir. Calixto Bieito, but those can be swapped.)
