Ring in the holidays with a San Francisco tradition like no other – SFGC's annual holiday concert at Davies Symphony Hall.
This year’s concert - Greetings from All Seasons - is inspired by the diverse range of holiday traditions celebrated by SFGC’s choristers. Through the collection of stories from choristers about their respective holiday experiences, a unique program was formed to tell a special ‘SFGC Holiday Tale’ that ranges from Beltane to Luminaria to Hannukah to Victory Day to Holi to Nawrouz to Christmas, from Mexico to Haiti to Syria to Ireland to Armenia to China.
As part of SFGC's ongoing commitment to championing music of our time, the concert will also include the world premiere of a new work by the acclaimed American composer, Richard Danielpour.
Hundreds of choristers from the Chorus and Chorus School will take the stage in a festive program, and will be joined by SFGC alumna (1995) and soloist, soprano Michele Kennedy, praised as a “fine young soprano with a lovely voice” (Washington Post).
