What are Catches and Glees?
San Francisco Renaissance Voices are Artists-in-Residence with Seventh Avenue Performances (San Francisco) and made their debut in 2004 with a sold-out performance of Victoria's Requiem. Under the leadership of Todd Jolly, Music Director and Katherine McKee, Assistant Music Director, the group has consistently earned praise for our "gossamer sound ... a sound something akin to spiritual levitation" as well as recognition for our imaginative programming and lauded as "a standout within the crowded field of Bay Area early music ensembles" by San Francisco Classical Voice (July 2009). We are dedicated to performing and exploring the a cappella choral music of the Renaissance particularly lesser-known and rarely-performed works, as well as exploring music from this period outside of the traditional European canon and have been featured by such publications as The Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, Newsday, USA Today and the national magazine Early Music America, among others. Most recently, San Francisco Renaissance Voices was selected as "Best Classical Music" for 2010 by SFWeekly.
