The Walden School Alumni Composers Forum – Offsite –

Saturday, February 22, 2020 — 4:00 PM
Tickets: Free! RSVP in Advance
Tickets available at the door only

Del Sol String Quartet performing works written by alumni of The Walden School’s programs. Moderated by composer Nathaniel Stookey.

Composers Forums are central to the Walden School experience, where new music is presented in a concert setting, and each new work’s premiere is followed immediately by dialogue between the composer(s), performer(s), audience, and the moderator(s). Alumni of Walden’s programs range in age from 10-100, with some professional composers, student composers, serious amateur composers, and hobbyists – and everything in between. A range of styles and genres is welcome and encouraged.

This concert will be at Holy Innocents Episcopal Church, 455 Fair Oaks Street, San Francisco, CA 94110.

While there are no tickets and no requirement to RSVP, we’d love to know if you are planning to attend. Simply write to us at with your plans and any questions you might have. 

Featured Walden Alumni Composers will include:

Bob Bassett
Brett Eastman
Joaquin Feliciano
Evan Ghislin
John Ivers
Lukáš Janata
Emil Margolis
Nathan Nokes
Samara Rice
Sarah Rose Stiles
