Postcard from the Chorus: SFGC takes New York

Hello SFGC Friends, from NYC! ….where 60 of our young singers are deep in rehearsals for our big Kennedy Center debut this coming Saturday, as a featured artist on the SHIFT Festival of American Orchestras in a program with The Knights Orchestra, with whom we shared the stage in June 2016 as part of the NY PHIL Biennial. We’ll be reprising performances of choral-orchestral works by Aaron Jay Kernis and myself, plus presenting the epic Vivaldi Gloria and the gorgeous Psalm 13 by Brahms. We are so happy to be back with our musical friends, The Knights!

Valerie, our new Executive Director Andrew, our tour staff, the choristers and I all send you warm greetings! Here are a few photos from our first couple of days in Brooklyn – you’ll hear more from us, including some updates from the singers, in the days to come!

Sincerely yours,

Lisa Bielawa
