Description

Under the direction of Chorus Director Ragnar Bohlin, the San Francisco Symphony Chorus has been deemed “. . . mighty and volcanic . . .” by the San Francisco Chronicle. The _San Jose Mercury News _raves: “And if there was a star of Friday’s show, it was the Chorus itself. Nothing was oversung or underdone; the group’s singing was . . . lit up from the inside.”

Bohlin leads the GRAMMY Award-winning San Francisco Symphony Chorus in a program of masterpieces that includes Duruflé’s Requiem, at once lush and exuberant.
