A wealth of romantic lyricism awaits all those who come hear the San Francisco City Chorus for their spring concert! Felix Mendelssohns iconic choral masterpiece, Die Erste Walpurgisnacht, is full of lush and dramatic harmonies of soothing scenes and seething storms that graphically depict ancient and haunting German folklore of the other Halloween, the night of April 30, when witches revel with the devil. As darkness turns to dawn on May Day, they rejoice in the return of the light and the arrival of spring.

In another romantic highlight of this season, tenors and basses are featured in Brahmss sumptuous and passionate Alto Rhapsody for alto and male chorus, in which a lost soul is urged to find spiritual support to relieve his suffering.

A rarely performed choral gem spotlights sf city Choruss sopranos and altos: Josef Rheinbergers Mass in g Minor: Missa Sincere in Memoriam.

Altogether, its a stunning program of unique choral repertoiremusic that you will want to experience firsthand.
