SF Choral Artists: Forecast: Sunny with Song / San Francisco
"Choral masterpieces" can be great for lifting our spirits. This music often brings us a flood of memories of how choral music touched us when we first experienced it in college or high school. In this program, Artistic Director Magen Solomon has combined masterpieces that are all-time audience and singer favorites with 5 World Premieres predicted to be classics.

Bask in masterpieces of the unaccompanied repertoire: Debussy and Hindemith Chansons; Poulenc Motets; Britten Flower Songs; Vaughan Williams Shakespeare Songs; challenging pieces by Carter, Ives, and Webern; and Puerling's charming "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square." toast 5 World Premiere works predicted to be classics: chuckle with us at e.e. cummings' settings by Composer-In-Residence Brian Holmes (from twinkle-toes and pirates to an old cowboy.) Be moved by the tale of a would-be migrant adrift at sea, by New Zealand Composer-Not-In-Residence Christopher Marshall.

Why juxtapose masterpieces of the repertoire with new works? Artistic Director Magen Solomon explains that she avidly cultivates engagements with living composers to help bridge the gulf between composer, performer, and audience. "I feel that music needs to be live music," Solomon comments. "It's so easy to listen to flawless recordings, but having live singers in front of live audiences singing compelling music by living composers has always been a critical part of our group."

Come and experience your own special engagement with choral masterpieces -- old and new.

"...amongst the foremost unaccompanied singing groups... on this or any other coast." -- R. Dane Danubian, artssf.com

"The Choral Artists sang with fervor, discernment, and tonal beauty"
