Invited through the auspices of the San Francisco Lesbian & Gay Freedom Band, Zaptet enthusiastically entertained attendees at an event celebrating the 20th anniversary of COLAGE, a nonprofit organization supporting children of queer parents.
Zaptet played a diverse selection of music for the luminaries assembled at the event, after which they heard from emcee comedienne Diane Amos, who grew up with two lesbian moms and is perhaps best known as The Pine Sol Lady.
Special thanks to Steven Keys, an occasional French horn player with Zaptet, who arranged two of the pieces we performed. Zaptet was recognized as a $500+ sponsor of the event.

- Franz Danzi’s “Quintet in F Major,” movements 1 and 3
- Antonio Soler’s “Sonata No. 89”
- György Ligeti’s “Sechs Bagatellen für Bläserquintett,” movement I
- Edvard Grieg’s “Peer Gynt: Four Pieces: Solveig’s Song”
- Gustav Holst’s “March” from his “Second Suite in F”
- Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Introduction and the Lion’s Royal March” from his “Carnival of the Animals”
- Erik Satie’s “Sonatine Bureaucratique”
- Claude Debussy’s “Minstrels,” “La Fille Aux Cheveux de Lin” (“Girl With the Flaxen Hair”), and “Golliwogg’s Cake-Walk” from his “Suite No. 1”
- Malcolm Arnold’s “Three Shanties,” movement 1
The concert included an intermission and many encores to a sometimes enthusiastic audience including a well-dressed poodle.
