What’s Happening in Silicon Valley this Weekend – April 8-10

Hello friends,

 

Welcome to our weekly events guide for Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area!  

 

If you enjoy the 70’s music, you won’t want to miss hearing Pablo Cruz on Friday night at Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga (“Love will find a way”).  Or if you’re feeling a little more classical, there are several noteworthy concerts in town.  One that especially warms my heart is the Violins of Hope project, where a collection of 86 string instruments, recovered from the relics of the Holocaust, have been lovingly restored by Israeli violin makers over the past two decades and will be featured in Peninsula Symphony’s concerts on Saturday and Sunday in Campbell.  

 

The other concert that I never tire of is chamber music presented by San Jose Chamber Music Society.  This Sunday evening, you won’t want to miss New York City’s Catalyst Quartet performing at St Francis Episcopal Church in Willow Glen. 

 

Get all the details below for these and many more concerts and events.  If you enjoy reading this and you’d like to get this list of events delivered automatically to your email inbox weekly, just click here.  And please message me with your favorite events that you enjoy – I’d love to share that with everyone.
