He was the most popular author of his day, but there’s still a lot you don’t know about Jack London. An activist, a two-time candidate for mayor of Oakland, an alcoholic, a rancher—London was a literary icon and a complicated character. Join Alta as writer Joy Lanzendorfer and Jack London scholar Iris Jamahl Dunkle dig deeper into the story of one of the Bay Area’s most legendary authors.
Join Alta and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music for a panel discussion on women’s emerging roles in classical music, the issues and challenges female musicians face, and the future of inclusivity in music. Moderated by SFCM faculty member, author, opera singer, and neuroscientist Indre Viskontas, this event will offer an honest and hopeful look at women’s work within classical music by our panel of accomplished female musicians, including Nicole Paiement of Opera Parallèle, Cordula Merks of San Francisco Ballet Orchestra, and Melissa Kleinbart of the San Francisco Symphony. Viskontas, Paiement, and Merks are all members of the SFCM faculty.
This discussion aims to expand upon Catherine Womack’s feature in Alta‘s Summer 2019 issue on L.A. Phil’s mission of incusivity and equity. Read Sanctuary Symphony here.
