The brainchild of internationally-acclaimed violist Ruth Kahn and award-winning chef, Mark Furr, the inaugural Musica Marin International Chamber Music Festival indulges guests with beautiful chamber music in venues such as St. Stephen’s Church and an exquisite nine-acre Tiburon private estate. Bay Area celebrity emcee, Liam Mayclam – known to legions as “The Foodie Chap” from KCBS – will preside over Saturday’s reception.
