Find Out Exactly How To Pronounce ‘Chopin’

Oh you like Chopin, do you? What else do you like? Pizza? Oxygen? Because to classical people that’s like saying, “Boy, do I love movies. Have you seen the Godfather?” Anyways, Tuesday March 1st is Frederic Chopin’s 201st birthday and there will be a great show in the city celebrating his music.

Classical Revolution started as a site-reading jam session at Revolution Cafe consisting of top-notch chamber music musicians and has since evolved into a worldwide collective. For every major composer’s birthday they do these these commemorative shows, usually free at Revolution Cafe on Mondays.

This one, however, is at an Ethiopian restaurant in the Fillmore district called Sheba’s (across from Yoshi’s), and from the bitching I’ve heard from pianists at Rev, it’s probably got a much nicer piano. Don’t worry, there aren’t that many steep hills getting there.

Here’s the scoop from facebook:
