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 Scot Hanna-Weir, who was named the choir’s interim Music Director in March 2021. Since its origin, the choir has been highly acclaimed for its sensitive and exciting performances of extremely varied and demanding literature.

Auditions

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?

Are you a tenor or bass? Have you ever contemplated singing with SFBACC? If so, please consider auditioning for the upcoming fall season. We have an amazing program planned by our new director, Scot Hanna-Weir. The program will include Eleanor Daley’s Requiem as well as works by Ralph Vaughn-Williams, Stephen Paulus, Undine Smith Moore, William Dawson and Moses Hogan.

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.”
