Benvenue House Concert Series Migrates
With Meyer Sound’s extraordinary acoustical engineering, our dining room has become a Magic Room – capable of heightening one’s ability to hear one’s dining companions while reducing the conversations of those away from the table to a honeyed hum. It can also make our dining room sound like a cathedral, or a symphony hall.
In the next few months, we’ll be experimenting how best to make use of our Magic Room for musical performances, starting with an exciting partnership with Benvenue House, which will be migrating its series of chamber music events to our dining room.
The first “Benvenue House Music Presents” concert at Oliveto will feature guitarist, Marc Teicholz and cellist, Tanya Tomkins playing solo Bach.
Chamber musician and soloist Tanya Tomkins specializes in both modern and Baroque cello. In addition to her current position as co-Principal cellist in both the Portland and Philharmonia Baroque orchestras, she has performed as a soloist with various orchestras and festivals throughout the world. Of special recognition are Tanya’s performances of the Bach Suites on Baroque cello. Together with pianist Eric Zivian, Tanya is co-Founder and Artistic Director of the new Valley of the Moon Music Festival in Sonoma. She also founded Benvenue House Music, a chamber music house concert series in the Bay Area.
Marc Teicholz, classical guitarist, is the first prize-winner of the 1989 International Guitar Foundation of America competition. Marc Teicholz has toured extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, receiving critical acclaim for his recitals and master classes. He is on the faculty of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and at California State University East Bay.
