26th Annual Mendocino Music Festival

The 16,000 square foot Concert Hall Tent on the Mendocino Headlands overlooking the Pacific Ocean

The Mendocino Music Festival will be held this year on July 7-21, 2012. The Mendocino Music Festival was the dream of former Principal Bassoonist of the San Francisco Symphony, Walter Green (1926-2007), Maestro Allan Pollack and Pianist Susan Waterfall.

Maestro Pollack has a Ph.D. in composition from UC Berkeley and has composed a variety of pieces especially for the Festival Orchestra and musicians. The Spiral Dance for Chorus and Orchestra; Two Movements in Time for Orchestra; and From the Song of Songs for Soprano and Orchestra; A Summer Evening at the Boonville Fair for Orchestra; Albion Song; Jazz Concerto for Saxophone; A Vibraphone Concerto; and a String Quartet. Allan Pollack as a jazz musician also plays the saxophone. Maestro Pollack is also the Music Director and Conductor for Symphony of the Redwoods here on the Mendocino Coast and the Camellia Symphony Orchestra in Sacramento.

Pianist Susan Waterfall studied piano with Ivan Moravec and Kurt Schnabel and musicology with Roland Jackson and Glenn Watkins. Susan Waterfall also creates yearly multi-media narrated settings for chamber music for the festival.
