Oh, Ring those Bells!
Ring in the holidays with angelic voices accompanied by bells! Our annual Holiday Showcase concert features all four of YWCPs performing ensembles, over 100 voices strong, singing together and as individual choirs. YWCPs ensembles sing music by J.S.Bach, Sulpitia Cesis, Hildegard von Bingen, Miklós Kocsár, Joan Szymko and others, as well as contemporary arrangements of familiar carols.
The Young Women's Choral Projects of San Francisco transforms the lives of young women through exceptional artistry in choral performance, and brings the expressive power of their music to the community, the nation, and the world. Through YWCP, young women ages 7-18 from richly diverse socio-ethnic backgrounds find their voices as singers, artists and women in a nurturing environment that empowers them to achieve artistic and personal excellence. YWCP offers three levels of choral experience, each with its own curriculum and musical objectives: Prelude Chorus (beginning level), Allegro Chorus (intermediate level) and Young Women's Chorus (advanced level). All YWCP ensembles teach young women the joy of performing, and instill in each singer important life benefits such as confidence, focus, self-discipline, problem solving, responsibility and compassion.
