Resonance @ First Church Berkeley: Sylvestris Quartet
Quartet Metamorphosis: From Biber to Beethoven
San Franciscos gut-string era Sylvestris Quartet will perform a program that explores the cyclical transformation and development of the string quartet. The program centers around two boundary-pushing characters, separated by nearly 150 years: Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber and Ludwig van Beethoven. You will enjoy hearing this unusual pairing as well as works by Scarlatti, Boccherini, Haydn, and Mozartframed with lively insight!

First Church Berkeley, a premier venue for music performance in the East Bay, has created its own exciting series of chamber and orchestral music concerts featuring artists from the Bay Area and beyond.
Music has always been an important part of the life of First Church. It touches the soul and gives sound and voice to ineffable mystery. We sing together and share our musical gifts. We also delight in the special talents of artists from within our community and beyond.
Derek Tam, First Church's Director of Music, curates this exciting series.
First Church is on the south side of the UC Berkeley campus, just west of Telegraph Avenue. It is a few blocks from the Downtown Berkeley BART and is accessible by several bus lines. Some paid parking is available in the church parking lot.
