Krishna – The Joy of Living comes to San Jose, California

It is always a pleasure when Golden Gate Music collaborates with Cincinnati composer and visionary, Kanniks Kanniksewaran. Our latest performance was the California premiere of “Krishna – The Joy of Living”. Local Indian dance troupes joined a delightful community chorus and children’s chorus in a performance that even included a sing-along that put smiles on the audience.

Our website is nearly restored!

If you are looking for audio samples and current additions to our songlists, they are coming soon. Sadly, the Golden Gate Music website had been hijacked, and we are working hard to rebuild it. In the meantime, please contact me, and I can personally send these. I’m sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks!

Pleasing fans while supporting music education in the schools

The Golden Gate String Quartet had the rare opportunity to benefit music education in the public schools, and entertain both an enthusiastic audience and KDRT 95.7 FM listeners, at a live broadcast from the 2016 Davis Music Festival. We even took requests! A highlight of the performance was a premiere of our exclusive arrangement of Radiohead’s new runaway hit, Burn The Witch. We concluded with The Time Warp from The Rocky Horror Picture Show, encouraging everyone to join in.

Music education is crucial for young people in developing both creative and analytical skills. Sadly, public funding has been steadily on the decline in California. The Davis Music Festival was created to raise money for this great cause. We at Golden Gate Music were thrilled to do our part.

Looking for a venue? Sometimes it’s good to look outside the box.

So many couples are opting for rustic “barn weddings” these days. The demand is so great that venues are springing up all over the usual locations. Often these are modern re-creations, and somehow the feel is less than authentic. Instead of sticking with known regions like the Napa and Sonoma Wine Country and the Carmel Valley, consider looking outside the box.

This weekend, the quartet performed for a delightful rustic wedding at The Inn at Park Winters. Set in the lush farmland of Yolo County, the site features a stunningly restored great house, glorious gardens, and more. The distance from the San Francisco Bay Area isn’t far either. In fact, the quartet’s commute was faster than for many performances in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, and certainly far shorter than Carmel.

Golden Gate Music joins “Shanti”.

Best Shanti Photo

Oh April 30th, Golden Gate Music was honored to present an orchestra to perform with hundreds of Indian and Western singers, dancers, and soloists, in the West Coast premiere of “Shanti, a Journey of Peace”. This 90-minute spectacular is the vision of Cincinnati composer and scholar, Dr. Kanniks  Kanniksewaran. This journey through man’s existence through time and space, presents the fundamental message of universal peace, and its importance to all of mankind. Bravo to all who made this performance a rousing success.

The 18th Century never rocked this hard.

The Golden Gate String Quartet certainly enjoys many adventures together! We had our own costume, makeup, and wig mistress for a recent performance at the Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. Notice the cool shoes. I think you can figure out who are clients were.
