The Society is excited to announce its annual fundraiser for the William O. Cord Memorial Grant Fund on April 14th 2016 at 6:00 p.m. 

The event will be held at the beautiful German Residence in San Francisco. Located in Pacific Heights, the German Residence Music Parlor has a sweeping views of the Golden Gate and San Francicso Bay.  .  .  .

The work to be heard was commissioned by the Wagner Society of Northern California through the William O. Cord Grant Fund. This is the first work commissioned by the Wagner Society. Based on the Tannhäuser legend and Wagner’s music, composer Liam Wade has created a work for piano trio. Piano transcriptions of Wagner’s works are quite common, but transcriptions for chamber ensemble are rare. A stellar group of musicians will be with us: The Lee Trio, an extraordinary chamber ensemble will perform the new Tannhäuser Oeuvrtüre and  we are also joined by soprano Ann Moss, pianist Steven Bailey and cellist Emil Miland. This is a unique evening of celebration and concerts in the German Residence are always memorable events. Invitations have been mailed to all members – your friends are also welcome to attend.  If you need more please e-mail:  WagnerSocNC@gmail

Advance reservations are REQUIRED due to security measures of the German Residence.
