San Francisco Renaissance VoicesSan Francisco Renaissance Voices “A sound something akin to spiritual levitation …” (San Francisco Classical Voice) San Francisco Renaissance Voices made its debut in October 2004 with a "standing room only" performance of Victoria’s Requiem and quickly became a favorite of Early Music audiences in the San Francisco Bay Area. Recognized for their imaginative programming, this mixed-voice ensemble is dedicated to performing and exploring the a cappella choral music of the Renaissance, particularly lesser-known and rarely-performed works. Under Katherine McKee, Music Director, in their short existence the group has been featured by the national magazine Early Music America, the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, Newsday, and USA Today, among others, and most recently was proclaimed "a standout within the crowded field of Bay Area early music ensembles" (San Francisco Classical Voice, July 2009). The group’s Opera Early & Ancient series has garned special attention including their “Technicolor” East Indian-infused production of Hildegard von Bingen’s "Ordo Virtutum" ("Hildegard's little-performed musical mantra rang out anew" - Los Angeles Times) with bansuri master Deepak Ram and the west coast premiere of William Boyce's "Solomon" ("The performance was often exciting and even eye-opening ... a performance other groups struggle to achieve on record" - San Francisco Classical Voice). Currently Artists-in-Residence at Seventh Avenue Presbyterian Church (San Francisco), individually the singers of San Francisco Renaissance Voices have performed with the American Bach Soloists, California Bach Society, Carmel Bach Festival, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony Chorus and the Berkeley, West Bay, and San Francisco Operas.
