Catholic Charities CYO presents Hope Uncorked, a special evening of wine, music and celebration, benefiting Bay Area kids in need on Monday, November 5, 2012.  Hope Uncorked will feature exclusive tastings from dozens California’s premier wineries, delectable Japanese cuisine, live jazz from the popular Lorca Hart Trio featuring Kenny Washington and Grupo Falso Baiano, as well as silent and live auctions featuring  items ranging from affordable cases to rare wines from around the world.

Hope Uncorked will carry on the tradition of improving and enriching the lives of Bay Area youth. Hope Uncorked will continue raising funds to provide clinical and therapeutic support for young boys and girls from difficult circumstances who have been placed in our care.

Hope Uncorked will directly benefit youth suffering from abuse, neglect, and emotional disorders who find safe haven at the St. Vincent’s School for Boys in Marin and the San Francisco Boys and Girls Homes.  The event will also benefit the Treasure Island Child Development Center, the Canal Family Support Program in Marin and Maureen and Craig Sullivan Youth Services in San Francisco, which provide childcare, after-school, and summer enrichment programs for low-income families.

Grupo Falso Baiano and friends

Grupo Falso Baiano is a choro group that offers a window into the history and diverse culture of Brazil. Choro is one of Brazil's earliest popular musics, dating back to the late 1800s, and, similar to jazz, it reflects the melding of African rhythms with a melodic and harmonic structure closely resembling Baroque Classical music.

G.F.B.'s exploration of choro spans nearly 100 years, including everything from the traditional to more contemporary versions and jazz influenced reinterpretations.

Musicians: Ami Molinelli (percussion), Zack Pitt-Smith (sax and flute), Q Morrow (guitar) and Sam Bevan (bass).

Lorca Hart Trio featuring Kenny Washington

Drummer Lorca Hart grew up in Taos, New Mexico in a musical family. He was exposed to a variety of instruments and musical styles as a child but early on it became clear that the drumset was his passion. In high school he started to perform and focus on Jazz. He attended California Institute of the Arts from 1992-96, studying with Albert "Tootie" Heath, Joe La Barbera, Charlie Haden, Wadada Leo Smith, and many others. 

Since that time Lorca has worked consistently in a variety of musical situations, performing with many of the West Coast's (and beyond) finest artists including : Ralph Moore, Carmen Lundy, Freddie Hubbard, Calvin Keys, Stanley Jordan, Craig Handy, Kyle Eastwood, Herman Riley, Azar Lawrence, Red Holloway, Plas Johnson, John Heard, Danny Grissett, Justo Almario, Bennie Maupin, Phil Ranelin, Dave Pike, Don Menza, Hugh Masekela, Bobby Rodriguez, the Clayton Brothers, Anthony Wilson, Julian Lage, storyteller/radio personality Joe Frank, actor/musicians Jeff Goldblum and Peter Weller, Ronald Muldrow, and the Cross Hart Jazz Experience (the project that he co-leads with bass player Ryan Cross). He also leads his own trio featuring Josh Nelson on piano and Edwin Livingston on bass. Lorca can be heard on recordings by Hugh Masekela, John Heard, Justo Almario, Ronald Muldrow, Dave Pike, Phil Ranelin, the Cross Hart Jazz Experience, and the Lorca Hart Trio.
