Event

The Second Occasional Marais-a-thon
Barefoot presents The Second Occasional Marais-a-thon: a six-hour celebration of the viol player's viol player: Marin Marais.    Expert performers from the Bay Area and beyond will take turns playing their favorite pieces by the great French Baroque master.

In 1679 the young phenomenon Marais was appointed ordinaire de la musique de chambre du Roy pour la viole, a position he held until he retired in 1725.   In between he published five amazing books of music for viol containing over 550 pieces for solo viol or 2 viols and continuo, and several collections of chamber music including trio sonatas.  He also wrote four operas.

The Bay Area is home to a legendary number of fine viol players, and during the Berkeley Festival players from afar augment the number of available partipants.  Marais has always been the viol players' most revered composer, and you will hear why.  This day-long concert is a benefit for the Viola da Gamba/Pacifica Chapter, supporting the Bay Area's vibrant viol community with scholarships for emerging players, an instrument rental program, workshops and playing events, welcoming all who love he viol.

In the amazing wooden acoustic of St. Mark's parish hall, this event will be uniquely entertaining.  The music, and the fun, starts at 11 and goes until shortly before 5.   There will be snacks.
