Co-presented by Locaphonic and Brava Theater

Brava Theater, 2781 24th Street, San Francisco

October 27th, 2012, 7:30pm

Co-presented by Locaphonic and the 28th Jewish Music Festival

Jewish Community Center, East Bay, 1414 Walnut Street, Berkeley

A food and music event celebrating human creativity, community, and resilience. Composer Amy X Neuburg and the award-winning vocal ensemble Solstice will perform Neuburg's original song cycle, inspired by Jewish recipes collected and preserved by women imprisoned in Terezin concentration camp. Sung in Czech, German, and English, the songs evoke the determined spirit of these women, using culinary memory and fantasy to sustain hope. The music draws from Eastern European folk, German lieder, Weimar cabaret, and the avant-garde, using eight women's voices and electronic looping techniques to create a multi-layered, multi-language chorus.

Includes a light dinner of Jewish California tapas, inspired by the recipes and prepared with organic, locally grown ingredients. 

Menu by Wise Sons Deli and Bi-Rite Market.  Wines by The Wine Club.

Fill As Desired is funded in part by the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music’s Musical Grant Program and the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
