Violinist Evan Price is comfortable in a number of styles – he’s played standard repertoire, gypsy jazz with the Hot Club of San Francisco, and spent ten years with the eclectic Turtle Island Quartet. This weekend, he’ll be soloist with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra in a concerto they commissioned from him for jazz violin. Music Director Ben Simon has paired the new work with Stravinsky’s neo-Classical Pulcinella Suite.
