The Young Women's Chorus of San Francisco is quickly becoming recognized as a world-class choral organization for young women. Formed in 2012 under the artistic leadership of Dr. Susan McMane, the chorus has been praised for its beauty of sound, stellar musicianship, and dynamic programming. Recently, YWC was selected the winner of the prestigious American Prize in Choral Performance, 2014, in the high school and youth division. The young women, ages 11-18, come from across the Bay Area, and are provided exceptional musical experiences such as singing on the SF Opera stage with Jake Heggie and Frederica von Stade, and at Cal Performances with Kronos Quartet, as well as touring nationally to Boston and New York City and internationally to Italy. In 2016, the chorus released its debut album, of music for the holidays and throughout the year.
Artistic Director Susan McMane is a world-renowned choral conductor specializing in treble choral music. In 2012, she became the founding director of the Young Women's Choral Projects of San Francisco, where she conducts the auditioned chorus of young women from grades 7-12 and oversees a training choral program for younger girls. Dr. McMane has won many awards for her work including three GRAMMY Awards with the San Francisco Symphony and the 2007 "Symphony of Excellence Arts Award" from the Pacific Musical Society.
