102.1 KDFC takes classical music out of the concert hall and into the clubs a bold new setting: Yoshi’s San Francisco with an November 19 show with La Pieta, the 12-piece, all-female orchestra fronted by violinist Angele Dubeau.

The intimate, unexpected venue is the perfect setting for the band that sizzled on it’s hit CD and PBS special ‘Infernal Violins’ and got downright sultry on its recent release, ‘Passion.’

It’s world-class classical with a contemporary twist, hosted by all the KDFC On-Air Personalities. Tickets are $45, adults only. The cabaret seating (not to mention the cocktail service) breaks the mold for a classical concert. “We throw a concert,” says KDFC’s Hoyt Smith, “and a party breaks out.”

An accomplished soloist known for unique arrangements of classical masterworks and sophisticated interpretations of modern pieces, Angele Dubeau put together the 12-piece ensemble La Pieta in 1997. The charismatic, adventurous result, wrote the L.A. Times, is “exciting, dynamic… the well-drilled band played with agility, power and a fierce joy in the doing.”

Praise for Angele Dubeau and La Pieta

“La Pieta tackled Vivaldi with vitality and velocity… crisp and tightly wound in the allegros, sensuous and lightly sweetened in the slow movements. Performances were consistently robust and inquiring, taking risks and taking nothing for granted.”
- Los Angeles Times

“(Infernal Violins) has an infectious, devil-may care attitude… it hops with energy, sizzles and smolders.”
- Forbes Magazine

“ Dubeau lets fly her unfettered virtuosity as solist extarorinaire, aided by her exceptionally talented all-female string-orchestra colleagues… you’re impressed by the sheer intensity of activity and energy that colors every note and phrase.”
- ClassicsToday

“Dubeau is a first-class violinist. (The concert was) a truly great recital and a perfect example of how to popularize music while maintaining the highest standards.”
- Repetoire (France)
