Wonderful description by crossword demon and chief San Francisco Chronicle !!music critic Joshua Kosman of Sunday night's concert of Rhys Chatham's A Secret Rose.http://www.sfgate.com/music/article/Chatham-s-epic-Rose-goes-beyond-punk-minimalism-4994464.php

We are ecstatic that we have reached our goal just now. Thank you dear friends.

Our cost overruns have been extensive, and we will gladly accept further contributions to meet this expense. Let's keep this going one more day!

We're so proud of our brilliant section leaders, volunteer guitarists, rhythm section, and leader Rhys Chatham. What magnificent music--and such an elegant spectacle at the Craneway Pavilion.
