Take a musical trip through history with the San Francisco Lyric Chorus, as this talented mixed-voice ensemble spotlights the great choral music written by American composers from colonial to contemporary times. The first half of the concert features songs and choral works from the Revolutionary War period through the temperance movement of the late 19th century. Then it's on to the recent past and present with moving pieces by Stephen Paulus, Daniel Gawthrop and Eric Whitacre. Now approaching its 20th anniversary, the chorus is is conducted by music director Robert Gurney, with piano accompaniment by Jerome Lenk. Learn More
The 2010-2011 season concludes with Blue Skies, Bluegrass, and Beyond—an innovative program featuring Musae in collaboration with local bluegrass musicians. Bluegrass versions of familiar classic rock songs and Appalachian gospel hymns and folk songs will appear alongside beautiful madrigals, part songs, and contemporary chansons.
Musae celebrates the nature that grows around us with Cornysh’s “Ah, Robyn,” Lauridsen’s “Dirait-on,” and Delibes’ stunning “Flower Duet” from Lakmé, turns to the sky with Stanford’s “Blue Bird” and Arlen’s “Over the Rainbow,” and looks beyond with the bluegrass hymns “Angel Band,” “Swing Low,” and others.
