SF Blind Cafe Now Auditioning Musicians for Small Chamber Orchestra

A Concert and Sensory Tasting In The Pitch Dark!

I just got a note from Rosh Rocheleau who is putting together the music for this very interesting project. First, a little background from their website:

“The San Francisco Blind Cafe, is a mind bending / heart opening experience where the audience will indulge in a vegetarian ‘Sensory Tasting Experience’, participate in a Q & A with their blind wait staff and enjoy a concert of original music…all in the pitch dark. This is NOT just another dinner in the dark…it’s a community experience where people connect, learn and grow from working together to participate in something greater than themselves. The San Francisco Blind Cafe is designed to help you feel more alive, awake, present and connected to your world. We donate a portion of the proceeds from our events to a local blind organization to help the blind community.”

From Rosh:
“The SF Blind Cafe dates are booked and I’m now auditioning musicians for the small Chamber Orchestra that will perform in the dark with me. The shows will be Oct. 10th – 12th, 24th -26th and Nov. 7th -9th. We are looking for a ‘lead Cellist’ ( the scores for the songs are written with the Cello as the lead instrument) and also for a violist, two violinist and bass. Since this is a charity event, it’s not a highly paid position but the musicians do get several comp seats to give to their friends.
