Pomegranates & Figs, Berkeley, CA, 7 Dec 2013

From Kaila Flexer: "Rather than presenting the annual Pomegranates & Figs event at Zellerbach Hall or The Freight & Salvage, I have chosen a more intimate setting this season with different lineups on two consecutive evenings."

Pomegranates & Figs—Two Concerts

Saturday, December 7
Sunday, December 8

Doors open at 7:00, music at 7:30 for both shows!
$20 donation (all proceeds go to the musicians)
Fifth Street Farms is a house located at
1517 Fifth Street (upstairs) between Cedar and Jones,
Berkeley, CA

Come to either or both nights!
To make reservations (strongly advised to assure you a seat): Please call 510 525-9248
Visit Fifth Street Farms online for more information.

The And of Two Trio (Shira Kammen, Kaila Flexer & Tobias Roberson) will perform on Saturday, December 7.

The Teslim Trio (Gari Hegedus, Kaila Flexer and Tobias Roberson) will take the stage on Sunday, December 8.

We're all very excited about some original pieces (including several world premieres!) inspired by the music of Greece, Turkey and the Middle East. We will also present new arrangements of traditional music from these same places. This promises to be two very special evenings of trios.

And now for some completely unrelated news: I have a new obsession: SUCCULENTS!!! I love them--they are quirky, surprising and addictive! I hereby announce this the first Concert/Succulent Exchange.

If (and only if) you want to, please come to the concerts below bearing a small succulent plant. We will have a table on which you can place your plant and at the end of the concert, you can leave with a different succulent!
