SAN FRANCISCO – (Jan. 8, 2008) – Pacific Union GMAC Real Estate is pleased to present the first classical music concert of the year, Fantasie & Verklärung, as part of its continuing “Concerts at the Presidio” series. The evening concerts will be performed on Thursday, Jan. 24 and Friday, Jan. 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the historic Golden Gate Club in the Presidio of San Francisco. The event is presented to the public at no charge; seating is limited so reservations are highly recommended.San Francisco Conservatory of Music pianist Franky Leung, Jr., explores the tension, turmoil, hope and majesty that inform the Liebestod, the timeless operatic passage transcribed by Liszt from Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde. Evoking a different but no less complex mood, Conservatory pianist Lo-An Lin performs the ethereal Polonaise-Fantasie of Frédéric Chopin and the impressionistic yet intense Sonata-Fantasy of Alexander Scriabin. Youth performers from the Conservatory’s Preparatory Division are also on the program for both evenings.“Pacific Union Presents is a popular classical concert and recital series held throughout the year to highlight young artists, including those from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music,” said Bryant McOmber, producer of Pacific Union Presents and Vice President and Branch Executive of Pacific Union’s Presidio office. “We present these complimentary concerts as a vehicle to introduce the incredible talents of Bay Area artists to the community. At Pacific Union we value elegance and art as well as elegance and service.”Known since its 2005 San Francisco inaugural as “Pacific Union Presents,” the popular community concert series is produced five times a year (two performances of each concert) by Pacific Union and enjoys generous and ongoing support of The Presidio Trust and Sherman Clay Piano Company. Additionally, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music has emerged as an important resource for the vocal, piano and other musical talent drawn upon for Pacific Union’s series.McOmber produces the series and is ultimately responsible for program selection, venue and physical facilities arrangements, compensation for performing artists, promotion and advertising of the event.
