San Francisco Bay Area Chamber Choir
The choir "flourishes in the incomparable sound of many voices unified in tone and spirit, blooming in the radiant phrases of Brahms, soaring on warmth of feeling, perfectly tendered... In pitch, blend, range, balance and variety of sonority, this choral instrument is excellent."...Robert Commanday, San Francisco Chronicle

The choir usually rehearses on Sunday evenings from 6-9 at Faith Lutheran Church in Castro Valley, CA, with at least one longer rehearsal scheduled each season for a Sunday afternoon and evening about a month before our scheduled concerts.
SFBACC has traveled extensively since its founding in 1978. Our latest journey took us to Turkey in the summer of 2010 for a very rewarding 2-week concert tour.
This was the choir's 12th overseas tour since our 1979 visit to Lucerne, Switzerland to participate in the Europa Cantat festival. We've begun planning for another tour in Summer 2014 -- destination to be determined soon!
In addition to our own visits to other countries over the past 33 years, we have also hosted several European choirs here in the Bay Area, including the Nicolai Chamber Choir from Stockholm, Sweden; the Westphalian Chamber Choir from Münster, Germany; the Malmö Chamber Choir from Malmö, Sweden; the Charles University Choir from Prague; and the Camerata Vocale Hannover.
