The renowned Throckmorton Theatre revived its longstanding Noon Concert Series late last month, hoping to infuse its landmark space once again with live music.
Next up on the calendar is the Porch Quartet, which was formed in the early days of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic when musician friends gathered to play on a porch in the Richmond District of San Francisco. Four of these musicians continue to perform together with a unique approach combining historically informed performance and visual audience engagement.
The quartet features Heidi Wilcox and Monica Gruber on violin, Daria D’Andrea on viola and Farley Pearce on cello.
Of course, strict COVID-19 protocols are in place: 1. All audience members over 2 years old must provide proof of vaccination OR a Negative Covid Test (taken within 48 hours) at the door. 2. PCR and Rapid Tests are both acceptable forms of COVID testing. 3. Bring a digital or physical copy of proof of vaccination or negative COVID test to the performance. 4. All Audience members, regardless of vaccination status must wear masks at all times while in the theatre.
