Liaison is a dynamic and vibrant early-music ensemble based in San Francisco, California. In addition to playing in concert halls, Liaison hopes to bring historically-informed performances, or H.I.P. as it is known, to a wider range of audiences in non-traditional venues while maintaining the highest musical standards.
The members of Liaison are all active in the early-music community as soloists, orchestral musicians, and/or teachers. Liaison’s group name was inspired by the members’ pursuit of a collaborative, cooperative approach to ensemble music-making as well the importance of the relationship between performer and audience.
In a phrase, our mission is to make H.I.P. hip!
Susie Fong, Harpsichord
Maya Kherani, Soprano
Hallie Pridham, Viola da gamba
Danielle Reutter-Harrah, Mezzo-soprano
