Real Vocal String Quartet was formed in 2003 by premier San Francisco violinist/composer Irene Sazer. Since then, the quartet has performed to sold out audiences around the Bay Area. The group is thrilled to announce the release this February of their first studio album. RVSQ?s influences range from traditional American string band music to contemporary improvisation, from Brazilian folk rhythms to hypnotic meditations from West Africa. Through it all, the threads of spine-tingling vocal and instrumental harmony and fearless, inspired improvisation weave a web of original acoustic music played with a deep groove.

RVSQ is:
Irene Sazer, violin
Alisa Rose, violin
Dina Maccabee, viola
Jessica Ivry, cello

Program will be announced from the stage.

Revolution Quartet is Classical Revolution's ensemble in residence.
The revolving cast includes former members of major string quartets and seasoned young chamber musicians. Recent and upcoming performances include the Legion of Honor, San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music's 4th Annual Chamber Music Day at San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Coda Supper Club, The Fillmore Poster Room, Bottom of the Hill, DeYoung Museum, and Samovar Hall.

Revolution Quartet is:
Jory Fankuchen, violin
Rachel Noyes, violin
Charith Premawardhana, viola
Samsun van Loon, cello

Program includes selections from
Claude Debussy: String Quartet in G Minor
Johannes Brahms: String Quartet in A Minor
... and more!


The mission of Classical Revolution is to present concerts involving both traditional and modern approaches while engaging the community by offering chamber music performances in highly accessible venues, such as bars and cafes, and collaborating with local musicians and artists from various styles and backgrounds. The musicians who play in Classical Revolution come from a variety of backgrounds. Most are recent graduates or current students from the nation's best conservatories, while others are accomplished non- professional musicians who use Classical Revolution as an outlet to maintain their musical life while working non-musical jobs. This inter-relation between professional and non-professional musicians is a fundamental part of our organization: dissolving boundaries that result from the specialization of musicians and bringing people, both audience and performers, together.

Congratulation RQ! Aren't we all proud of them!:) Let's go and hear them @ Yoshi's this time. As noted we as meetup members get super discount on tix purchase. Isn't this awesome or what?
BTW, yes, since it's a meetup let's come & meet one another @7:30... and chat until we are told to shut up right?:) One more thing: $2 fee for this meetup will go toward CR/RQ fund (so NO NEED TO TIP THEM SEPARATELY UNLESS YOU DESIRE!), and will be collected at the meetup. Cash's fine. That's all for now! Hope many, i know it's a workday... me too, can come to this event and once again have fun and relaxing musical sharing with our own musician group!:)
