Bach to Blues concert will start off GavFEST weekend

WHO: Local musicians, including Gavilan College music faculty

WHAT: Will start off GavFEST weekend with the return of Bach to Blues , a concert featuring a range of music from Blues! Performed by notable local musicians, including many on the Gavilan College faculty, Bach to Blues was performed at Gavilan College for several years in the 1990's. This years's production is offered to the community through a partnership between Gavilan College and the South Valley Symphony.

The program will begin with a medieval chant, performed by South Valley Choir. Then, Ann Bowie, Maria Amirkhanian, Tomas Montoya, Albert Marques, and Beverly Olivier-Blount will complete the first half (Bach). After intermission, the mood will change to Blues, with Dave Pocella, John Garcia, and Nate Pruitt with Primary Colors performing.

An informal reception will follow the performance, with a chance to meet the performers and enjoy refreshments.
A commemorative joint CD, with cuts by all of the musicians, will be offered for sale.

Tickets are for sale at all South Valley Symphony Outlets, as well as at the Gavilan College Bookstore and Gavilan College Box Office. V.I.P. seating (which includes a Bach to Blues latte mug and Starbucks coffee) is $25. General admission seating is $12, senior tickets are $10, and students $8. The Box Office will open at 6:30 p.m. on the day of the performance. As some prior years' performances were sold out, it is suggested that patrons purchase tickets in advance.

WHEN: Friday, April 23, 7:30 p.m.

WHERE: Gavilan College Theater, 5055 Santa Teresa Blvd., Gilroy

WHY: Bach to Blues will celebrate music, and the musical talent in our community. Proceeds will benefit the Gavilan College music department, whose goal is to purchase a performance piano for use by the college and South Valley Symphony (currently, perfomance pianos must be rented for each concert) as well as eight smaller practice pianos.
