The 2020 season will continue our tradition of concerts that feature chamber music, solo instrumental music, vocal, jazz, and choral music. In addition, to celebrate the 250th birth anniversary of the composer Ludwig van Beethoven, we are launching the Beethoven 2020 project. This project will feature major compositions by the composer for solo instruments, violin-piano, chamber music and the composer’s monumental oratorio Christus am Ölberge ( Christ on the Mount of Olives), Op. 85.

Corazon Tango presents traditional and contemporary Argentine tango pieces arranged by world-renowned maestros from the mid-twentieth century to the present. The program will include a variety of solo, duo, trio, and quartet arrangements.

  • Hanel Yeon – Bandoneón
  • YoonHo Jeong – Contrabass
  • Abram Kim (Guest artist) – Violin
  • Maximiliano Larrea (Guest artist) – Guitar

Main members of Corazon Tango were all born in S. Korea, however they spent their early adulthood in 3 separate cities such as San Francisco (Sumi Lee, Pianist), Buenos Aires (Hanel Yeon, Bandoneonist) and Seoul (YoonHo Jeong, Bassist). Love of Tango music put us together in Buenos Aires through one of the most prestigious & competitive Tango orchestra schools in the world, “La orquesta escuela de tango, Emilio Balcarce” in 2017. Since then the rest is history.

They all have very similar tango training, theater performance track records in Buenos Aires under the same maestros who taught us everything about Tango such as Maestro Victor Lavallen and Maestro Roberto Alvarez (Color Tango), who were the Osvaldo Pugliese’s bandoneonist and arranger. Maestro Jose Colangeolo, who was the Anibal Troilo’s last pianist, etc… (More details on http://www.sumilee.com)

Argentine Tango Music changed their lives profoundly. Their desire to study and perform Tango music, made them to move and live in Buenos Aires for years and a decade. After years of assimilation and absorbing the knowledge of Tango Music, they now want to share and give back to the people in their own communities and the world.

San Francisco Renaissance Voices (Artists-in-Residence at The Episcopal Church of the Incarnation and Sunset Music and Arts) announces their new Music Director, Don Scott Carpenter, and new Assistant Music Director, Liesl McPherrin, for their upcoming 16th Season! Read more about them on our website: http://www.sfrvoices.org/staff–singers.html.

San Francisco Renaissance Voices made their debut in 2004 with a “standing room only” performance of Victoria’s Requiem and quickly became a favorite of San Francisco Bay Area Early Music audiences.

SFRV has consistently earned praise for their “gossamer sound … a sound something akin to spiritual levitation” as well as recognition for their imaginative programming and christened the Bay Area’s “hipper than thou” Early Music ensemble by San Francisco Classical Voice and in 2010 SFWeekly chose SFRV as the “Best Classical Music” for their Best of San Francisco edition. SFRV is the San Francisco Bay Area’s professional mixed-voice ensemble dedicated to performing and exploring the a cappella choral music of the Renaissance particularly lesser-known and rarely-performed works, as well as exploring music from this period outside of the traditional European canon.
