Piano Series: Spencer Myer (Preston Hall)

Wednesday, July 13, 7:30 PM PDT

| $15 – $35

Audience favorite Spencer Myer returns to play Beethoven Sonata No. 27, Op. 90; Debussy’s Pour le Piano; and Chopin’s “The Four Impromptus.” Two pieces from Enrique Granados’ Goyescas suite—inspired by Goya’s paintings—will complete the program: Los requeibros and El amor y la muerte.

This concert may be attended either in person, or virtually via livestream.

For 2022, the Festival’s main stage is again temporarily transplanted from our signature Tent Concert Hall in Mendocino Headlands State Park to the beautiful, iconic and historic 1938 Cotton Auditorium in nearby Fort Bragg. We’re pleased to also welcome the return of more intimate concerts in Preston Hall, our smaller Mendocino venue. While we’d hoped to be back in the Tent Concert Hall this year, the combination of pandemic-related disruptions in the availability of vital resources (such as labor) and lingering uncertainty about public health conditions this summer would have made that an unacceptably risky proposition. Meanwhile, work is under way toward our 2023 return to our home since 1985, the Tent Concert Hall on the Mendocino Headlands.

Proof of completed COVID-19 vaccination, including at least one booster, is required, and masks must be properly worn at all times while on event premises. Though it might exceed official requirements, this policy is based on current conditions and the results of our most recent audience survey.

If you’d like to familiarize yourself with some of this music in advance, we recommend the following recordings and notes: String Quartet performanceString Quartet notes, more String Quartet notes, Afternoon of a Faun performance, Faun notes.

“Waterfall’s productions always present exciting, absorbing playing of great music, but are also rare, distinctive examples of what can be called music education, though they’re more conversational, truly a sharing of perspective, interest, anecdote. There’s a sense of immediacy to her delivery, weaving in and out of the playing, an intimately conceived present awareness of this heritage. It’s something unique that needs to be experienced.” -Ken Bullock, Berkeley Daily Planet
