On the heels of the early 2018 release of its newest recording, Final Answer, SFGC concludes its subscription season at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts with a program featuring a selection of works from the album along with the world premiere of the chamber version of violinist/composer Colin Jacobsen’s If I Were Not Me, originally premiered by SFGC at the 2016 New York Philharmonic Biennial at Lincoln Center.

Jacobsen, a founding member of the intrepid New York-based ensembles, The Knights orchestra and Brooklyn Rider, and a regular performer with Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, joins SFGC as soloist for the program.
