      …deeply beautiful and moving”
      - Jonathan Russell, San Francisco Classical Voice; professor, SF
      Conservatory of Music

      was delightful...may they continue to blow long and loudly."

      ABOUT SAN FRANCISCO CHORAL ARTISTS:
      Nationally-recognized San Francisco Choral Artists regularly champions the
      work of living composers. Known for eclectic programming, the Choral
      Artists specialize in a cappella music, both choral masterpieces and
      vibrant new music. Now in its 24th season, and 14th under Artistic
      Director Magen Solomon, the critically-acclaimed 24-voice ensemble
      continues to introduce new audiences to the joy and power of choral music.

      MORE ABOUT THE PREMIERE WORK Marina:

      The new composition Marina is based on a poem cycle by local poet Lucha
      Corpi, and explores different aspects of a native woman known to the
      Spanish as Marina, who aided Hernán Cortés in the 16th Century in Mexico.
      Also known as La Malinche, she has acquired almost mythical status over
      the centuries, and has been both revered and reviled.

      Lucha Corpi, a poet and novelist who lives in Oakland, often explores
      themes of racism and justice in her works. Growing up in Mexico, she
      learned the story of La Malinche as a child. As an adult in Berkeley of
      the 1960s, she revisited the story while taking part in the Chicano Civil
      Rights movement and her perspective on Marina deepened. Says Corpi, “I
      began to appreciate La Malinche in a different context – as an
      intelligent, smart woman who took control of her own destiny.”
