Composers, Inc. - 30th Anniversary Season
On Tuesday, February 11 we present a concert of an under-appreciated art form, contemporary music for organ with Jonathan Dimmock, a prominent artist in the Bay Area and world-wide. He is organist of St. Ignatius Church (San Francisco), interim director of the Grace Cathedral Camerata, organist for the San Francisco Symphony, and director of Artists' Vocal Ensemble. Joined by several instrumentalists, he will perform works by Jennifer Higdon, Mason Bates, David Conte, David Samson, and C. Michael Reese.
