Talented young women ages 11 to 18 from across the San Francisco Bay Area will join their voices in seasonal song for Young Women's Choral Projects' Gifts of the Season: Spirit, Peace & Joy! This festive program features Benjamin Britten's magnificent Missa Brevis in D with organist Jonathan Dimmock, spiritual, peaceful and joyful music by Hildegard von Bingen, Francisco Guerrero, Frank La Rocca and Abbie Betinis, as well as familiar carols of the season with opportunities for you to sing along. Under the artistic leadership of Dr. Susan McMane (who will conduct this show), the YWC transforms the lives of young women through exceptional artistry in choral performance and brings the expressive power of the group's music to the community, the nation and the world.

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.
