    "You can count on hearing some high-quality choral music, as Artistic Director Robert Geary and his

    Society have certainly proven over the years."  San Francisco Classical Voice

     

    The San Francisco Choral Society presents

     

    ALL-NIGHT VIGIL by Sergei Rachmaninoff

     

    This a cappella masterpiece is among Rachmaninoff’s finest accomplishments.  He created this extraordinary work in 1915 as a plea for peace in time of war; he filled it with deep sadness— and outpourings of pure joy.  A MONUMENT of RUSSIAN SACRED MUSIC.  All-Night Vigil was among Rachmaninoff’s favorite compositions—  so close to his heart that he requested portions of it be performed at his own memorial.
