On the heels of the February 2018 release of its debut CD, Final Answer, on Philip Glass's Orange Mountain Music label, the San Francisco Girls Chorus concludes its 2017-2018 subscription season at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts with a program featuring works from the album along with the world premiere of the chamber version of violinist/composer Colin Jacobsen’s If I Were Not Me, which was originally premiered at the 2016 NY PHIL BIENNIAL festival at Lincoln Center. Jacobsen, a founding member of the intrepid New York-based ensembles, The Knights orchestra and Brooklyn Rider, and a regular performer with Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, joins SFGC as soloist for the program.
