Our Fall 2014 trimester, Holiday Light and Love, celebrates the Christmas holiday with works a cappella and accompanied. The joys and beauties of Christmas are expressed in compositions by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Norman Dello Joio, and Conrad Susa. This special holiday also is a time of light. We sing settings of O Nata Lux by 16th century composer Thomas Tallis and contemporary composer Morten Lauridsen. And, this time of year also is about love. We sing 20th century French composer Maurice Duruflé’s and contemporary Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo’s settings of the beloved text about love and charity, Ubi Caritas.
Formed in 1995, San Francisco Lyric Chorus is an auditioned, medium-sized, mixed-voice chorus that performs a diverse repertoire with an emphasis on classical choral music and rarely performed works. We are an inclusive and welcoming community of singers, committed to excellent musicianship and creative programming. The Chorus has featured performances of works by such composers as Berlioz, Mozart, Bach, Haydn, Schubert, Brahms, Fauré, Dufay, Josquin, Bernstein, Gjeilo, Howells, Pärt, Tavener, Lauridsen, Verdi, Britten, Whitacre, Dvorák, Kodály, Corigliano, and San Francisco composer Kirke Mechem, as well as our 10th Anniversary commissioned work, Illinois composer Lee R. Kesselman's This Grand Show Is Eternal and the December 2009 World Premiere of Robert Train Adams’ Christmas Fantasy.
We have a wonderful sense of community and enjoy making music together and sharing it with our audiences. We would like to meet you!
