Classical KDFC + InterMusic SF Present: Listen Local featuring AGAVE

ON SUNDAY, MARCH 17, Listen Local will present Agave, the GRAMMY-nominated Bay Area ensemble that specializes in string-music of the seventeenth through twentieth centuries, performing as string quartet featuring Katherine Kyme, Anna Washburn, Aaron Westman, and William Skeen. Their program will exclusively celebrate women composers – Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel, Dora Pejacevic, Claudia Rusca, Clara Schumann, Rosy Wertheim, Margaret Bonds, and Florence Price – inspired by their latest recording effort, AGAVE: In Her Hands.

Listen Local is a new, free concert series showcasing the best of the Bay Area’s small ensemble musicians and soloists. The musical offering was developed in partnership by Classical California KDFC and InterMusic SF to serve Bay Area communities by connecting listeners to local musicians. For more information, visit

Listen Local will take place in the Cha Chi Ming Recital Hall located at The Bowes Performing Arts Center in San Francisco. The building is an expansion of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and the home to Classical California KDFC studios. The hall has a jewel-box design and features dramatic windows, offering full-floor views of SF’s prized cultural beacons.

Listen Local is only made possible through Classical California KDFC’s stead-fast commitment to Bay Area communities of listeners and artists. In partnership with InterMusic SF, Listen Local is a dedicated effort toward increasing access to world-class music for everyone.

Many featured performers of the series are members of InterMusic SF’s Fiscal Sponsorship Program roster or have received funding through the InterMusic SF annual Musical Grant Program. InterMusic SF programs aim to uplift Bay Area-based musicians dedicated to performing, creating, and sharing small ensemble music in our local communities.

Classical California’s mission is to make a positive impact on individuals and communities by championing the power of classical music and is a broadcast service of the University of Southern California.
