Bach to Bolling

Art by Roger Huyssen

After the enthusiastic response to Claude Bolling’s Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio last year, Avedis is pleased to present Bolling’s Picnic Suite on this year’s final program. Mark your calendars for January 20, February 24, April 7 and May 26, and enjoy works from Bach to Bolling, Mozart to Molino, Farkas to Farrenc, and much more.

Thirty four years ago, our inaugural season captivated both audiences and critics alike.

“Avedis means ‘good news’ in Armenian. And Monday’s debut…for Avedis, San Francisco’s newest chamber music series, was certainly that.” – SF Chronicle

Since then Avedis has continued to bring inspiration to our programming and joy to our performing with each new season.

“…this year’s trio of concerts is a smashing example of quality, variety and freshness…” – Newhouse News Service

…musicianship at its zenith” – SF Classical Voice

For more than 30 years, Avedis — the fine series led by flutist Alexandra Hawley — has been regaling San Francisco audiences with a variety of chamber music, performed by a shifting constellation of the areas leading instrumentalists. From Bach to the modern era, this is a reliable source of amiable musicmaking.”
 – San Francisco Chronicle

In our 2019 season we once again offer chamber music lovers a diverse repertoire from well-loved masterpieces to unique musical offerings, and joyous performing by some of the Bay Area’s finest musicians.
