Giv­ing the gift of mu­sic to mark mis­sion’s 100th

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT - — Joshua Kosman

For 100 years, since the com­ple­tion of the ad­ja­cent church, Mis­sion Dolores has had a com­fort­ably in­ti­mate space for mu­si­cal per­for­mance. What it doesn’t have is a pi­ano suit­able for that pur­pose.

For­tu­nately, the Mis­sion has friends will­ing to chip in. As part of the church’s cen­ten­nial cel­e­bra­tion, the es­timable pi­anist Ce­cile Li­cad, known for her sen­si­tive in­ter­pre­ta­tions of a wide range of reper­toire, plans to per­form a ben­e­fit recital de­voted to the key­board mu­sic of Chopin.

Pro­ceeds are ear­marked for the pur­chase of a Stein­way pi­ano — which, in the­ory, should mean more such events in the fu­ture. Ce­cile Li­cad: 7 p.m. Sat­ur­day, Nov. 10. $20-$100. Mis­sion Dolores Basil­ica, 3321 16th St., S.F. 415-3924400. www.city­box­of­fice.com
