San Francisco: Places to go, people to see

Meridian Music: Composers in Performance, a series dedicated to both new and traditional music in an intimate space, opens its 2007-08 season with a solo saxophone performance by Phillip Greenlief at Meridian Gallery. Along with a few works written for him by Pauline Oliveros and South African composer Shaun Naidoo, Greenlief will perform the Bay Area premiere of “The Fourth World,” a recent work he he wrote based on Hopi mythology. Greenlief, who founded Evander Music, an independent record label that presents original composition, improvised music and new jazz, also is director of the music department at San Francisco Waldorf High School.

The sax performance is at 8 p.m. Wednesday at Meridian Gallery, 535 Powell St., San Francisco. Tickets are $5 to $10, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
