SFCMP percussionist William Winant kicks off the program with his uniquely personal interpretation of James Tenney’s Koan: Having Never Written a Note for Percussionfollowed by performances of the work of three of the Bay Area's leading sound artists from the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies: Jon Kulpa, Maija Hynninen, and Jon Yu. Take a break from the holidays and join us for live music, conversation, snacks, and drinks to enliven the festive atmosphere. Free, open to the public, and kid friendly.
