The San Francisco Bay Area Chamber Choir

“The incomparable sound of many voices unified in tone and spirit”

The Choir

SFBACC was founded in 1978 and sings under the direction of Ofer dal Lal, who was named the choir’s Music Director in June 2017. Since its origin, the choir has been highly acclaimed for its sensitive and exciting performances of extremely varied and demanding literature.

2018-2019 Concert Season

The San Francisco Bay Area Chamber Choir, we would like to personally invite you to the choir’s 40th Anniversary Gala Celebration, to be held on Saturday, November 17th, 2018.

All three of our former Artistic Directors (Harry CarterDavid Stein, and Tony Pasqua) will join with our current Artistic Director, Ofer dal Lal, to conduct the choir in a program that will be sure to conjure joyous memories and illuminate our ongoing path of artistic excellence. Then, we’ll gather for a reception, where we can re-connect, share stories, and enjoy lovely desserts, tea, coffee and wine/champagne.

The performance will include pieces from the past and future of the choir by composers William Byrd, Robert Lucas de Pearsall, Claudio Monteverdi, Morten Lauridsen, Veljo Tormis, Heinrich Schütz, Vaughan Williams, Anton Bruckner and others.

The Sound of Christmas Past
The simplest melody can carry a feeling across centuries, and being sung ages after its inception, it can come to new life like a withered branch blossoming again.

Washed Ashore
Choral treasures depicting humans in search of protection and safety. Tumultuous sea against hard stone, and a star that leads the way.

Are you an experienced choral singer in the Bay Area who’s looking for a friendly choral home where you have the opportunity to perform challenging music for appreciative audiences?

The choir “delivered up harmonies that were so lush they buzzed and burred in the high arched hall, a testament to their careful tuning and balance.”
