This Friday through Sunday Aug 25-27, at the Grand Piano Weekend of Contemporary Music, is the conclusion to the second season of Terry Riley's Sri Moonshine Music series at the Camptonville Community Center. The series begins with ZOFO, the four-hands(Eva-Maria Zimmermann and Keisuke Nakagoshi) who have electrified audiences from Tokyo to Carnegie Hall and the Sierras. A 20-finger orchestra whose artistry has been described as "athletic musical precision." On Saturday, Grammy-nominated, Barbara Higbie will appear, and on Sunday there's a special presentation by Sarah Cahill.  Cahill's discography includes over twenty albums and she recently finished recording a five-CD set of Terry Riley's solo and four-hand music with pianist Regina Schaffer for release this fall on the Irritable Hedgehog label. Cahill has also commissioned, premiered, and recorded numerous compositions for solo piano by John Adams, Yoko Ono, and others. She is on the faculty of the San Francisco Conservatory, hosts a radio show on KALW, and curates a monthly series of new music concerts at the new Berkeley Art Museum.
