SF Choral Artists: A cappella concerts, Dec 5/12/13 Peninsula, SF, East Bay
- Celebrate with this renowned chamber ensemble in an a cappella program of warm favorites requested by singers and audience alike. Music of Britten, Byrd, Pärt, Biebl, Busto, Gesualdo, and Tavener joins that of the Bay Area's own Aprahamian, Conte, Bielawa, Nixon, Peterson, and others. Add two sparkling world premieres--from San Jose Composer-In-Residence Brian Holmes and New Zealand Composer-Not-In-Residence Christopher Marshall, and you'll unwrap new favorites at this unusual concert. Magen Solomon directs 24 voices. Early Music matched with contemporary works. And plan to join the Choral Artists for a brief reception after the program.
