Rossini Birthday CelebrationMarta JohansenAs he was born on February 29, 1792, we can only wish Giachino happy birthday on leap years! Join the musical merriment with noted soprano Marta Johansen and the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra All-Stars: Eugene Chuklov and Elizabeth Choi (violins), Ben Simon (viola), Eugene Sor (cello), and Michel Taddei (double bass). For tonight’s program of chamber music and operatic arias, the audience is sure to be on its feet, cheering “Hi Ho Silver!” especially when they hear the familiar passages of the William Tell Overture.

Classical at the Freight brings the Bay Area's best classical musicians to the Freight for an hour of top-flight chamber music in an informal, friendly atmosphere. San Francisco Chamber Orchestra Music Director Benjamin Simon is your host; his goal is to un-stuffify and de-mystify classical music for the general music lover, sharing the joys and rewards of this timeless art with new audiences young and old.
