Pacific Union Presents The Saint Michael Trio Feb. 12 & 13 at Presidio-- Award-Winning Young Pianist from SF Conservatory of Music Performs


San Francisco, CA – February 2, 2009 – Kicking off the new year, Pacific Union Real Estate is pleased to present the first set of performances in its 2009 “Concerts at the Presidio” season. The 90-minute program features The Saint Michael Trio, the Bay Area’s hot new chamber music ensemble, plus an award-winning young pianist from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Evening concerts will be performed on Thursday, February 12 and Friday, February 13 at 7:30 PM at the historic Golden Gate Club in the Presidio of San Francisco. Seating is limited so reservations are highly recommended.

“The Saint Michael Trio plays with a zest that is contagious,” according to the Palo Alto Weekly. Formed in 2007, The Saint Michael Trio is an artistically fresh and energetic chamber ensemble, featuring violinist Daniel Cher, cellist Michel Flexer and pianist Russell Hancock. The group has quickly established itself as Northern California’s premier piano trio, eliciting praise and acclaim for vivid interpretations of the classical chamber literature.

The trio will perform masterworks from Debussy, Mendelssohn, Chaminade and

others, plus piquant offerings of jazz, jazz fusion, tango and a little Hollywood. Also on the program is youth pianist Christine Kim from the Preparatory Division of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

A suggested donation of $5 per person, gratefully received at the door, will help Concerts at the Presidio continue with this popular series. Known since its 2005 San Francisco inaugural as “Pacific Union Presents,” this well received community concert series is produced throughout the year by Bryant McOmber, VP and Branch Executive of the Pacific Union Presidio office, and enjoys generous and ongoing support of The Presidio Trust. Additionally, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music continues to serve as an important resource for the vocal, piano and other musical talent drawn upon for Pacific Union’s series.

The Golden Gate Club is located at 135 Fisher Loop, at the intersection of Sheridan and Infantry Terrace, in the San Francisco Presidio. Ample parking is available nearby. To RSVP, call Pacific Union Presidio office at 415.447.6274.
