August 23: San Francisco Concerto Orchestra at the Composer's House

Posted By on Wed, Aug 11, 2010 at 9:00 AM

Seth Montfort is an extremely gifted pianist living at a former mortuary in Guerneville who holds near daily concerts, tours in Latin America, plays Liszt while wearing leather and possesses an incredible gift for retention with a remarkably large memorized repertoire. He also founded the San Francisco Concerto Orchestra, a group which endeavors to provide starring soloist turns to musicians denied such a spotlight in their symphony day jobs. The S.F. Concerto Orchestra often play at Montfort’s house, and it’s one of those only-in-Guerneville experiences. Folk and punk are common fare at house shows, but classical? In a former mortuary? Blindfold a friend, drive them out there and blow their mind when the S.F. Concerto Orchestra play Ciani, Paganini, Mendelssohn and more on Monday, Aug. 23, at the Composer’s House. 16375 Fourth St., Guerneville. 4pm and 7:30pm. $10–$20. 707.604.7600.
