Notes for June 21 2017

There are very few scheduled performances – in some of the chapels, and some shared rooms, there will be specific sets – otherwise the performers will perform for the entire concert – taking occasional unscheduled breaks. The best way to see everyone is just to wander, and go back to a room if it was empty when you first passed by.

In the Chimes Chapel

5pm-5:35pm: A performance by Joel Davel, Nannick Bonnel, Peter Apfelbaum & Claudine Naganuma honors the memory of Don Buchla, whose innovative instruments and dedication to contemporary music influenced the lives of many in the Bay Area new music community.

Map of Garden of Memory at Chapel of the Chimes 2017

For those of you who like to plan ahead, or afterwards, want to remember who you saw where, here is a map showing where the performers will be playing. Some will be sharing a room, but most will be on their own – which means there will be times when they have to take a break. Don’t despair, circle back! There are few schedules – none we can publish, but they might be posted in the rooms once you get there. There will be a schedule for The Chapel of the Chimes itself posted in the lobby area.

Here’s the map for the performances at the 2014 Garden of Memory!

There will be a food truck stationed outside the main entrance plaza on Piedmont Ave to tide you over during the event. No food or drink is allowed inside the building, however. )Although you should feel free to bring a water bottle as it does get crowded inside, and water fountains are few and far between.) Ebbetts Good to Go

(A few) Schedules for Garden of Memory June 21, 2014

For the most part, there are no schedules at all. Occasionally you will find a posted schedule up by the entrance to a room. Most of the performers, scattered through the building, will be performing for the entire four hours. However, they will be taking breaks – so if you stumble on a silent room filled with incomprehensible instruments, cords, an empty chair – please try to retrace your steps later to come back when that room will be swelling with sounds.

There are a few chapels which do have schedules: the large chapels on the main floor – The Chimes Chapel and the Julia Morgan Chapel. In addition, Effulgence on the top floor corner, the outdoors Pacific Plaza on the upper level, and a few other rooms shared by multiple performers. We will update the schedules as we learn them. (For the pieces these groups will be playing – please refer to our Performers Program Notes Page.)
