Just heard about this concert. Sorry that it conflicts with our other opera event, but I just wanted to put it out there for those who might be interested.
Kristin Pankonin Benefit Concert
A busy and coveted pianist and accompanist in the Bay Area, Kristin Pankonin is undergoing cancer treatment, and her friends, colleagues, and collaborators are organizing a benefit to help pay medical bills.
Led by Frederica von Stade and Zheng Cao (herself a cancer survivor), the concert is scheduled for 8 p.m., Sept. 24, in the S.F. Conservatory Concert Hall. There is no admission, but donations will be accepted at the concert, or may be made by checks to Kristin Fund, and mailed to Danville Congregational Church, 989 San Ramon Valley Blvd., Danville, CA 94526.
Other participating artists on Sept. 24 include Catherine Cook, Michael Dean, Lisa Delan, Nicolle Foland, Maryam Mahvi, Nanette McGuinness, J Raymond Meyers, Christa Pfeiffer, Bruce Rameker, Raeeka Shehabi-Yaghmai, Krista Wigle, and pianists Tim Bach, Robert Schwartz, and Pankonin herself.
Besides performing regularly throughout the Bay Area, Pankonin has appeared in recital in New York, Hawaii, Washington state, and several European locations. She serves as vocal coach and accompanist at Mills College and the S.F. Conservatory of Music.
