      East meets West in lively rhythms and shimmering textures! VOCI
      Women's Choral Ensemble presents Across the Great, Wide Sea, a
      concert featuring music from and inspired by Asia. The centerpiece of
      the concert is Gustav Holst's mystical masterpiece, "Choral Hymns to
      the Rig Veda (Group Three)" in which Holst sets ancient Sanskrit
      prayers for voices to a rippling piano accompaniment. The concert
      also features a selection of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean folk
      songs; "Gamelan" by R. Murray Schafer, in which the chorus imitates
      the sound of a Javanese gamelan, and Bob Chilcott's
      transcendent "Peace Mass." Finally, the concert features a new work
      by Artistic Director Jude Navari entitled "WaveSong," inspired from
      travels in Thailand.

      The first of the two concerts, February 2, will be VOCI's second
      annual benefit for the Faithful Fools Street Ministry of San
      Francisco. The Faithful Fools Street Ministry, located in the
      Tenderloin district of San Francisco, was created to establish a
      community of people that work together to address social and economic
      injustice, particularly through the issues of homelessness and
      poverty. The second concert will be presented for East Bay audiences.
