                               Programs Especially Crafted for Senior Citizens

SONIC FOREST PRODUCTIONS serves as a resource for educational, entertaining programming, presenting 20-30 concerts, lectures and workshops per year to senior citizens and other under-served audiences. We emphasize the relationship of music to nature, including human nature. Our performances jog memory, motivate movement, laughter, social interaction and more. With a core ensemble featuring oboe, violin, Celtic harp, upright bass, piano or keyboard, accordion and percussion, we configure according to your wishes, sometimes inviting guest artists. We can provide special event programming. Our affiliation with InterMusic SF enables us to receive monetary donations, therefore we do our utmost to keep our fee within your budget. More details are below the photos.
