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 2013-2014 SFBACC Season is here!
Under the direction of SFBACC Music Director Anthony Pasqua, our November 2013 concerts will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of English composer Benjamin Britten, a central figure of 20th-century British classical music.
Joined by guest organist and pianist Rodney Gehrke, the choir will perform Britten's "Festival Te Deum", "Jubilate Deo", "Canticle II: Abraham and Isaac", excerpts from Britten's opera "Gloriana", and other short Britten choral works.
The concert will also include excerpts from Henry Purcell's "King Arthur" and his Odes for St. Cecilia's Day, along with works by John Dowland and Thomas Weelkes.
On Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 8PM, we will perform at Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley in Kensington.
On Sunday, November 24, 2013 at 7PM, we will perform at All Saints Episcopal Church in Palo Alto.
Tickets may be purchased at the door or may be purchased online.

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.
In addition to our own visits to other countries over the 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.
