She founded the annual Garden of Memory concert at the Chapel of the Chimes in Oakland, which is one of the many ways she tries to make contemporary music more accessible to a wider audience. She also does that Sunday nights on her radio show <a href="http://www.kalw.org/programs/then-now"><em>Then and Now</em></a>&nbsp;on KALW on Sundays at 8pm. Cahill spoke with KALW's Martina Castro and played some songs for her, as she described why she ended up leaving the more formal classical world, for the freedom of the experimental genre.</p><p> Fri, 08 Mar 2013 01:03:44 +0000 Martina Castro 24119 at http://kalw.org Bay Area Beats: Sarah Cahill
