There is more to life than opera. Below are my extraoperatic musical interests.

Concerts at 405 Shrader,
October-November, April-May. An intimate performance space with a fine piano (35 seats) in the Haight in San Francisco.

Festival de Musique d’Entrecasteaux, Late August. Sometimes world class, always fine performances of a rich and sometimes surprising chamber repertoire.

Festival Messiaen au pays de la Meije, Late July. Based on Messiaen this festival looks generally forward with generally difficult music in always fine performances.

Festival International de Piano de la Roque d'Anthéron, July. A huge festival with generally European pianists of varied talent and technique. The repertoire is exhaustive though it avoids advanced late twentieth century and contemporary works.
