Darren Johnston Group @ the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Chamber Music Day, Nov 17th

Free! All ages.

As a part of the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music’s annual “Chamber Music Day, Live + Free,” Mission Eye & Ear is a “live cinema” series organized by SF bassist Lisa Mezzacappa in collaboration with the beloved Mission District film space, Artists’ Television Access (ATA). Bay Area and West Coast experimental filmmakers are paired with local jazz and experimental music composers to create new short film/video and music works, performed live by Bay Area ensembles. The afternoon begins at noon, with my collaboration with filmmaker Paul Clipson beginning at 3pm.
