Beethoven in the City ~ ‘Sweet Charity’ ~ ‘The Empty Nesters’ ~ Frankenstein Symphony ~ Francofonia

Gregory Goode
The Cypress String Quartet

This week on Open Air, host David Latulippe talks to cellist Jennifer Kloetzel of the Cypress String Quartet, which is celebrating its 20th and final season by offering a series of pop-up concerts around San Francisco called ‘Beethoven in the City’. Unfortunately, the  planned conversation with Monique Hafen, who plays Charity in the Hillbarn production of the musical ‘Sweet Charity’, opening this weekend, could not take place because of an injury that the actress sustained. Actors John Walker and Pamela Gaye Walker stop by to discuss the world premiere of The Empty Nesters’ at Z Below in San Francisco. Native San Franciscan composer Mark Greyshares details about the premiere of his ‘Frankenstein Symphony’ with the Berkeley Symphony under Music Director Joana Carneiro; and regular contributor and critic at Large Peter Robinson reviews the new movie Francofonia.

Open Air with host David Latulippe; heard live on Thursday afternoon, May 5, 2016, at 1pm. Listen now or  anytime...
