35th Season Gala: Noye's Fludde
Saturday, March 29, 2014, concert at 8pm
2 Lake Street, San Francisco
In this rarely staged 20th century master work by Benjamin Britten, developed from a 15th-century mystery play, the biblical story of Noah and his ark comes to life through the 350 voices of the San Francisco Girls Chorus and Chorus School. SFGC is honored to share the stage with Carey Perloff, Artistic Director of the American Conservatory Theatre, as she portrays The Voice of God. Joe Chappel sings the role of Noah, joined by alumna and mezzo-soprano Silvie Jensen as Mrs. Noah. Led by SFGC’s Music Director and Principal Conductor, Valérie Sainte-Agathe, the performance caps more than three decades of choral artistry!
The production will be staged by Ariel Craft and will feature original art, costumes and set pieces created by members of San Francisco’s acclaimed Creativity Explored, supported by a grant from the Creative Work Fund.
SFGC’s annual gala dinner and auction will take place prior to this special event concert that evening.
SFGC would like to thank our sponsors for this program: Cathy and Sandy Dean.
