The Bernal Hill Players is an adventurous chamber music group from San Francisco whose three core members play clarinet, flute, voice, piano and percussion. Their fascinatingly diverse repertoire includes European classics, Latin American favorites, and newly commissioned pieces by Californian and Mexican composers.
Special Guest: Jessica Ivry, Cello
The Bernal Hill Players was formed in 2008 by Bernal Hill residents Jennifer Peringer, Martha Rodríguez-Salazar, and Leah di Tullio. Since then they have been playing concerts throughout the Bay Area and Mexico City, and have commissioned several pieces by Bay Area composers for a project about the neighborhoods of San Francisco, called “San Francisco: In and About the City”. This project has resulted in a CD due out in February 2012. Their next big project involves commissioning pieces about neighborhoods of Mexico City by Mexican composers.
Their mission is to play a wide and rich repertoire, to commission new works, to create interesting arrangements of existing works, and to use chamber music as a way of both celebrating local community and creating cross-cultural musical connections.
