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.

Gorgeous, technically accomplished choral sound. But this is a totally white-bread group that doesn't personally connect with the human suffering of slavery that is embodied in the African sourced spirituals they try to sing with such perfection and TOTAL lack of Soul.
