About SFCA Patrons

The Choral Artists are grateful for the continued support of San Francisco Grants for the Arts / Hotel Tax Fund and The Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation. These two organizations, along with our many individual donors and the corporations matching contributions from our loyal individual donors–AT&T, IBM, Microsoft, and–have a marked impact on the level of consistent support that SFCA is able to provide for the creation of new choral music, to Bay Area composers, and for the fostering of young and emerging composers across the USA. We are also very grateful for last season’s support of our Composer-in-Residence by the Zellerbach Family Foundation.

Two years ago we proudly announced the Roger Nixon Living Music Initiative (RNLMI), created by his five children in honor of the eminent composer who was SFCA’s first Composer-In-Residence.  The Initiative is designed to significantly advance our commitment to new choral music by doubling funding for SFCA’s composer-focused programs–our New Voices Project for composers under age 30, the Composers’ Invitational, the Composers-In-Residence and Not-in-Residence programs, and the production of new recordings.

This season, our 30th, we announce a new composer-focused program, “SFCA+1″, designed to expand the repertoire for chamber choir and a single instrument. Astounding jazz violinist, Grammy-winning Mads Tolling, will be our inaugural SFCA+1 guest artist.

We couldn’t have imagined a more significant development as we build on the accomplishments of the last three years:

  • Winning the 2012 national ASCAP/Chorus America Award for Adventurous Programming
  • Releasing With Strings Attached, our recording with The Alexander String Quartet, favorably reviewed by Fanfare Magazine
  • Collaborating with the instrumental trio Veretski Pass and composer/librettist Joshua Horowitz to premiere the highly successful and unique folk opera, “Lilith the Night Demon”, in May 2014

As support for RNLMI continues to gather momentum, the scope of SFCA’s new music initiatives is widening, and our support of living composers continues to increase.

Won’t you please help celebrate our 30th anniversary season through your generous donation this season?
