You are invited to join us for


 2012 Chrysalis Concerts


Saturday, December 1st, 8 p.m.

Sunday, December 2nd, 4 p.m.


Chrysalis New Music Studio

275 Clara Street, San Francisco


(between Harrison and Folsom, Fifth and Sixth)


Come experience the resonance of live music in just intonation.


These concerts will feature music composed by Cris Forster

for seven original acoustic instruments, played by the Chrysalis Ensemble.

Joining the ensemble for these concerts are four musicians

 who have participated in our internship program,

funded by generous grants from the


Argosy Foundation Contemporary Music Fund

and the

San Francisco Arts Commission.


The music comes from two of Cris Forster’s large works,


Song of Myself: Intoned Poems of Walt Whitman


Ellis Island/Angel Island: A Vision of the American Immigrants.


The concerts will include solo compositions for all the instruments, two ensemble pieces,

and the premiere of a new work for Diamond Marimba and Bass Marimba.
