Dear Culture Vultures,
Join us for singers' and audience's most-loved holiday music from SFCA's first 20 years! Presenting a wide range of traditional and innovative seasonal music from the treasury of beloved tunes and texts. Works by Britten, Crabtree (www.PaulCrabtree.net), Dawson, Gabrieli, Howells, Kverno, Leighton, Mueller, Nixon, Tallis, and others.
Choral Artists is a 24-voice, semi-professional chamber choir. They perform a cappella choral music of all periods, and specialize in 20th century works. Combining a wide variety of music in fresh and unusual ways, the ensemble's thought-provoking performances have engaged the hearts and minds of audiences throughout the Bay Area. For more information, go to their web site (www.SFCA.org).
The "Culture Vultures" chose to attend Choral Artists' concert on Friday, 17 December 2004, 8 PM, in San Francisco. SFCA also has another concert Saturday, 18 December 2004, 8 PM, in Palo Alto, if you cannot join us on Friday.
Tickets at the door are $22. You can arrange for tickets in advance at a group rate through Les DeLashmutt (510/208-5148 or LFDeL@...) for $12. Please contact Les no later than Thursday, if you're interested in group tickets.
Friday's performance is at St. Gregory's Episcopal Church on Potrero Hill in San Francisco. If you do not know this area intimately, obtain directions or you'll never find it. Directions and maps are available on St. Gregory's web site (www.SaintGregorys.org).
Three reasons the "Culture Vultures" chose this venue are its great acoustics, unusual architecture, and fascinating artifacts inside. You can get a hint of the architecture and artifacts from their web site. It's worth the trip just to see the facility and its contents.
