The Chamber Music Society of San Francisco and Diana Gameros present an evening of women composers w/works by Caroline Shaw, Fanny Mendelssohn, and Diana Gameros


Chamber Music Society of San Francisco

Founded by Natasha Makhijani, Jory Fankuchen, Clio Tilton, and Samsun van Loon in the spring of 2013, the Chamber Music Society of San Francisco was born out of a collective desire to perform the great chamber music repertoire.  Dedicated to bringing these masterworks to diverse audiences, CMSSF is passionate about concertizing in intimate settings, creating close connections between performers and listeners, and cultivating a relationship between music and audiences that extends far beyond the perimeter of the concert hall.

CMSSF brings together Bay Area musicians of diverse musical experience.  They can be heard performing with the San Francisco Symphony, San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, Santa Rosa Symphony, Magik*Magik Orchestra, as well as many other chamber ensembles, including early music, jazz, tango, and pop.


Diana Gameros

Diana Gameros is a singer, songwriter, music instructor and social activist. Originally from Ciudad Juarez, Gameros arrived in the Bay Area six years ago and since then she has been creating music that reflects the 21st century experiences of a young indie artist at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres.

Gameros was born to a musical family where she was surrounded by traditional Mexican songs of love and revolution. The first of her family to receive formal music lessons, Gameros left Mexico as a teenager to study piano and recording technology in Michigan. During those formative years, Gameros not only soaked up the sounds of classical music, the avant-garde, world music, and jazz, but also collected stories of other immigrants, forever influencing her own diverse musical style and profound themes of her compositions and lyrics.

After just a few years in the Bay Area, Gameros’ talent and versatility have brought her a steady stream of high profile gigs at such notable venues as Herbst Theater, Brava Theater, The Independent, Fox Theater, SFJAZZ Center, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts  and dozens of other venues small and large. Gameros has opened concerts for Bebel Gilberto, Torreblanca, Latin Grammy-nominee Ximena Sariñana, Latin Grammy-winners La Santa Cecilia and was one of the artists featured in the MEX-I- AM Festival which  included the participation of renowned mexican artists such as Natalia Lafourcade, Murcof and Tambuco.

In November 2013 Gameros released her first official album entitled “Eterno Retorno”, a soulful retrospective of her journey as a musician and immigrant. In March 2015 Gameros performed at the Notes from Mexico concert with the Oakland East Bay Symphony.
