Friday, March 23, 2012, 12 p.m.

Discussion and special viewing of select collection items

Co-Sponsored by the Marin Symphony

Event is at the California Historical Society, 678 Mission Street, San Francisco

Join us for an afternoon discussion led by composer Rob Kapilow as he discusses his latest work for the Marin Symphony, Golden Gate Opus and talks about the creative process. View select works from the California Historical Society collection that aided in Rob Kapilow’s work as he composed Golden Gate Opus. Composer Rob Kapilow listened to the community’s stories and experiences about the Golden Gate Bridge. Kapilow asked, “What does the Golden Gate Bridge sound like?” He explained that there’s a symphony right there if you only listen to it, referring to the foghorn, the tires on the pavement, the wind and more. He joined forces with local media outlets, schools and non-profits to gather stories and feedback about the Golden Gate Bridge.
