We announce the inaugural season of the Starr King Way Performance Series (SKWPS), presented by the First Unitarian Universalist Society of San Francisco. Curated by Nancy Munn and Mark Sumner, professional staff musicians at UUSF, SKWPS features a diverse array of artistic talent that reflects the progressive vision of our revered and historic institution.

Four performances per year, free to the public (donations welcome), will be scheduled on select Sunday afternoons at 1:30 p.m. in the beautiful spaces and acoustics found in our center at the corners of Geary Boulevard, Franklin Avenue, and Starr King Way.

Earlier this year, Dirty Cello gave a rollicking preview of what is possible for a musical performance in our space (view below). They were the perfect excuse to get SKWPS up on its young feet. Watch the March 10, 2024 concert recording on Friday, May 24 at 7:00 pm on our YouTube Channel. (Click Here).

The balance of the 2024 series features:

June 7 Our Town by Thornton Wilder, a prepared reading by members of the UUSF community (see weekly flame)
June 9: classical guitarist Eric Hamilton
September 22: WAGNER & KONG,  Cello and Piano Duo
November 3: 21V, a new choral ensemble conducted by Martin Benvenuto


Artists, watch here for our new application to be considered for the 2025 series.

An addendum to the Sunday Series includes:

June 7th -- Our Town by Thornton Wilder, a prepared reading by members of the UUSF community. Friday evening 6:30-9:30pm with a meal served between acts and open forum and commentary following the reading.

Eric Hamilton
Classical Guitar Concert - June 9, 2024, at 1:30 pm, Sanctuary

Reflective of the UUSF mission, Eric presents a guitar program of vibrant, joyous (among a myriad of other emotions on raw display), always caring, and inclusive music. Music that brings us major composers from throughout the past five centuries: Bach, Dowland, Weiss, DeFalla, Tarrega, Albeniz, and more, and from across the globe: England, Germany, France, Spain, Asia, and North, Central, and South America!

Eric Hamilton is thrilled to be celebrating his 20th year in service to UUSF as a guest guitar soloist for morning worship and fellowship, and he is especially excited to be the premier performer in the new Performance Series.
