February 6, 2016.  CHAMBER MUSIC SOCIETY OF SAN FRANCISCO performs works by SATIE, DEBUSSY & RAVEL, as part of SAN FRANCISCO FRIENDS OF CHAMBER MUSIC’s return to San Francisco’s Legion of Honor with a monthly series of weekend concerts titled Legion Listening Series. Now in its seventh season, the Legion Listening Series is a collaborative partnership between SFFCM and the Legion of Honor presenting period-specific concerts that highlight the museum’s special exhibitions. Curated by Dominique Pelletey, SFFCM’s Executive Director and resident Frenchman, performing ensembles are asked to create programming that is inspired by the Legion’s current exhibit, thus bringing together the visual and performing arts in a public setting to stimulate the imagination and enhance the experience of visitors at the museum. All concerts take place in the Rodin Gallery and are free with purchase of admission to the museum. This year we are pleased to announce that the Legion’s latest exhibition will be brought to life by Bay Area ensembles starting February 6, 2016, as the museum opens a new exhibit by renowned French modernist painter Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) in a U.S. exclusive show entitled Pierre Bonnard: Painting Arcadia. Featuring 75 works, the exhibition is the first major international presentation of the artist’s work to be mounted on the West Coast in half a century and an in-depth examination that reconsiders Bonnard as one of the foremost practitioners of modernism in the transitional period between Impressionism and abstraction. Several themes from Bonnard’s career will emerge, including the artist’s great decorative commissions where the natural world merges with the bright colors and light of the South of France, where windows link interior and exterior spaces, and where intimate scenes disclose unexpected phantasmagorical effects.  Legion Listening Series.  12 noon – 1:30pm.  Palace of the Legion of Honor, 100 34th Ave., San Francisco, 94121.  Free parking is available around the fountain in front of the museum or along El Camino del Mar. for details.
