The San Francisco Concert Chorale is an independent chamber group of semi-professional and amateur singers dedicated to presenting musical performances of the highest quality. In addition to introducing choral treasures to the San Francisco Bay Area, the Chorale performs a variety of works from throughout the choral repertoire, from familiar favorites to lesser-known gems. Embracing the music making experience, the diverse repertoire has included contemporary masterworks such as Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Requiem, majestic Mozart and Vivaldi pieces, sacred motets, carols from around the world, and just about everything in between. The Concert Chorale has presented the Bay Area premieres of Conrad Susa’s oratorio The Wise Women, Antal Dorati’s Pater Noster, and Robert Levin’s completion of Mozart’s Requiem, the latter in collaboration with the Wyoming-based Cheyenne Chamber Singers.
Known for its’ beautiful and pure a capella sound, the chorale also performs collaborations with wide ranging accompaniment, from chamber orchestra to organ and harp. The Chorale has toured nationally and internationally, including an invitation-only appearance in the Festival de Mexico en el Centro Historico in Mexico City, one of only two American groups invited to perform in this international event. A year later, the Chorale presented a series of eight concerts throughout the south of France, culminating at the historic Cathedral of Ste. Cecile in Albi.
The Chorale has recorded three compact discs, including On A Still, Still, Night, selections from which can be heard each holiday season on Bay Area classical music stations.
