Rising classical music star Elizabeth Dorman will perform a piano recital on Sunday afternoon, October 20, at a private home in Sonoma. A fundraiser for the Sonoma Classical Music Society, the intimate event recalls the “salon concerts” of the 18th and 19th centuries, when performers entertained a select audience in the ‘salons’ of patrons and generous aficionados.
Dorman is a graduate of both the San Francisco School of the Arts and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where she has been on the adjunct faculty; has soloed with the Symphony Parnassus and the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra; and has given numerous recitals in the San Francisco Bay Area. This will be her third appearance for the SCMS; she last appeared in Sonoma with Nigel Armstrong, in January. The 3 p.m. program will include pieces by Bach, Debussy, Schumann and Beethoven.
Tickets are $75 include a 2014 membership to the Sonoma Classical Music Society. Sonomaclassical.org. Confirmed ticket holders will be given directions to the home where the recital will be held. The salon concert is limited to 65 people.
