2022 Winter Concert: March 25 & 27

Eleanor Daley’s Requiem
and works by Hogan, Dawson, Moore, Vaughan Williams, Parry, and Paulson
The San Francisco Bay Area Chamber Choir presents IN REMEMBRANCE, a concert reflecting upon loss, rest, and peace. Particularly as we enter our third full year of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have experienced loss in so many ways as a community. IN REMEMBRANCE gives us a moment of pause and reflection, confronting our grief and pain with music of hope and consolation. Eleanor Daley’s haunting and mournful a cappella Requiem anchors the program along with spirituals and part songs.
