Earplay set to serenade crowds

Theater, opera and film director Peter Sellars is presenting “An Evening with Peter Sellars and Earplay” from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Forest Hill Clubhouse, 381 Magellan St. |between Dorantes and Montalvo avenues. Sellars will discuss his current projects and Earplay, a group of Bay Area chamber musicians, will perform. For ticket information, visit www.earplay.org.

What is Earplay? It’s new. New stuff is exciting. So much of the classical art scene tends to be about things that are old. Earplay is about moving forward.

How long have you been doing these intimate gatherings? I gravitate around and I enjoy the orbit.

Why should people attend? What do they have to look forward to? A sense of occasion. Here are people making a huge contribution to the Bay Area and it’s mature in a beautiful way, something that is an amazing child and made its way through adolescence.

What else have you done in the Bay Area? I’ve done other shows in the Bay Area, primarily working through opera [and] Cal performances in Berkeley. Earplay, though, is beloved and it’s more intimate. That is the word and the feeling.

How is Earplay different? It’s tantalizing and you’re present at the creation. It’s not yet on the shelves of the supermarket. It’s low key, high energy and up close. I can’t bring it all to full disclosure.
