Fight Cancer Through Song: A Benefit Concert for Kristin Pankonin at the SF Conservatory on September 24

Over the years, I've met many singers, composers, and instrumentalists who have passed through San Francisco over the course of their studies and careers. What nearly all of them have in common is that at some time they had worked with Kristin Pankonin, one of San Francisco's top pianists and coaches, and talked about the incredible impact she had on them. I had the pleasure of working alongside her in the summer of 1989, when we were students at the Academy of the West.

Kristin has cancer. She also needs your help to help raise money for treatment.

On Friday, September 24 at 8pm in the concert hall of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (50 Oak Street), friends of Kristin will be putting on Fight Cancer Through Song: A Benefit Conccert for Kristin Pankonin to raise money to defray the cost of Kristin's cancer treatment. Among the singers appearing will be Zheng Cao (who has also battled cancer), Catherine Cook, Nicole Foland, and Frederica von Stade (!!).

This is a golden opportunity to help one of SF's most pre-eminent musicians in return for the work she has done in developing so many musicians over the years.
