Crowden's 30th anniversary season continues with Sundays @ Four: Bonnie Hampton & Friends at 4pm, January 19.|
Internationally lauded cellist Bonnie Hampton leads an active music life as a chamber musician, soloist, and teacher. A founding member of the Naumburg Award-winning Francesco Trio, she also performed as part of the Hampton-Schwartz Duo with her late husband, pianist Nathan Schwartz. Her solo debut with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra was followed by appearances with orchestras nationally, and she has performed as soloist and chamber music guest in many of the major halls of the United States and world, including performances with the Juilliard, Guarneri, Cleveland, Mendelssohn, Alexander, Budapest, and Griller String Quartets. A student of Pablo Casals, she participated for many years in the Casals and Marlboro festivals. She is a past president of Chamber Music America and has served on faculty at the SF Conservatory of Music and the Juilliard School.
Ms. Hampton, a good friend of Crowden's founder, Anne Crowden, was an early supporter and guest coach at Crowden, and continues to visit as often as possible. She will be joined by Crowden faculty members Jeff LaDeur, Cathy Allen, Liana Berube, Isaac Melamed, and Monica Scott, as well as Joseph Maile and Pei Ling Lin.
