Classical at the Freight brings the Bay Area's best classical musicians to the Freight for an hour of top-flight chamber music in an informal, friendly atmosphere. San Francisco Chamber Orchestra music director Benjamin Simon is your host; his goal is to un-stuffify and de-mystify classical music for the general music lover, sharing the joys and rewards of this timeless art with new audiences young and old.
Tonight’s program features Rootstock, formed in 2008 by three of the hottest stick-and-mallet men in the world. Chris Froh, Loren Mach, and Daniel Kennedy make the fur fly with their amazing, high-energy performances of contemporary music composed for everything you can strike, stroke, or sizzle. A Freight favorite – and we want to warn you, this concert will be very exciting, and at times downright loud.
