From Pole to Pole: Christmas in the Three Americas

From Anchorage to Tierra del Fuego, holiday traditions are expressed through singing. Our celebration will stretch across 9,149 miles and 500 years – sampling the rich musical offerings of ancient Peru, modern-day Canada, Baroque Mexico, early New England, and contemporary California. With spirituals, carols, hymns, lullabies and stories – the music of islands and mountains, of dazzling snow and sizzling sun.

Including a special guest performance by The Crowden Chamber Singers!
(SF performance only)

Joyful Voices, Stomping Feet: Song and Dance in the Jewish Tradition

Singing and dancing have long been partners, especially within the Jewish tradition. Joined by the internationally known Klezmer trio Veretski Pass, we offer the music of tiny villages and big cities, and of important days in sacred and secular life. Works by Rossi, Milhaud, Novakowsky, Karmon, Burnham, Zimpel, and others, as well as our Composers-in- and Not-in-Residence.

Boats & Trains & Flying Machines

Pack your bag, we’re heading out! We’ll glide across the water, clickity-clack through the countryside, and zoom through the air in a musical tribute to transportation machinery. Including works of Chen Yi, Stravinsky, Marshall, Whitacre, Barber, Bryars, Chihara, and our New Voices Project winner. We’ll “transport” you through time and across the globe – on second thought, forget the bag!
