Eighth Annual Matthew Sperry Memorial Festival: HomeGrown
Handwritten scores from Matthew’s notebook inspire this annual festival of music and remembrance. The Festival begins in San Francisco with a Tag Team Trio Shift featuring dozens of the Bay Area’s experimental musicians performing no more than three at a time. Closing in the East Bay, the renowned sfSoundGroup presents a composition of Matthew’s in a program of exquisite works in contemporary music making.
