Summer Chamber Music Weekend (11th Annual) - Roy Bogas and Friends
The Gualala Arts Chamber Music Series is delighted to again present the Roy Bogas and Friends Ensemble for the eleventh annual Summer Chamber Music Weekend, Saturday, July 13, 4:00 p.m., and Sunday, July 14, 4:00 p.m., at the Gualala Arts Center.
This traditional weekend of superb performances by pianist Bogas and outstanding musicians from the San Francisco Symphony is the biggest musical event of our concert season. Music lovers are invited to hear either one or both performances, for a fulfilling weekend of superb music performed by top artists.
Pianist Roy Bogas received his training in New York and at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. He made his debut with the San Francisco Symphony at age 14, and at age 19 he became the accompanist to the famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin, playing over a hundred concerts with him throughout North and South America. He has also played with Joseph Szigeti and many other well-known artists.
In 1962 he was a prizewinner at the second Tchaikovski Competition in Moscow. He has performed as soloist with virtually every orchestra in Northern California and with many other orchestras in this country and abroad. Mr. Bogas is Professor of Music at Holy Names University in Oakland, and is also Principal Solo Pianist for the San Francisco Ballet. An active chamber musician, he is the founder and director of the MasterGuild Series of chamber music concerts at Holy Names. He has led the Gualala July Chamber Music Weekends since 2003. Roy Bogas is, without a doubt, Gualala's favorite classical musician.
