Local Vocal: Celebrating Our Musical Bay Area - SF
Join us in celebrating our own artistically vibrant Bay Area, with a program featuring music by both well-known and up-and-coming local composers. We are excited to present "Winging Wildly," a three-movement setting of poems about birds by the Bay Areas best-known composer of choral music, Kirke Mechem. Our concert will also include selections from Mark Winges mystical "Missa Diapente" and Gabriela Lena Franks striking "Ccollanan Maria" a work based on a traditional religious tune from Cuzco, PerĂº, the original capital of the Inca empire in the 15th century (with both Spanish and Quechuan text). We are also proud to sing several works exploring Californian history, culture, and natural wonders; including David Contes Facing West, third in his "Whitman Triptych" cycle, commissioned in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge; and Franks "San Joaquin," a setting of San Francisco poet Bill Eversons text about Yosemite. Other Bay Area-centric works on the program include Martha Stewards "A Fragment;" San Francisco Conservatory of Music composer Joseph Stillwells lovely "O nata lux;" and Oakland-based Sanford Doles humorous "Dance Steps."

Join us prior to each concert for a panel discussion with some of these talented local composers!
