You Made a Difference
In 2013, SFCA proudly announced the Roger Nixon Living Music Initiative (RNLMI), designed to advance its commitment to new choral music by doubling funds for SFCA new music programs.
Happily, the success of RNLMI now supports two NEW composer-focused programs—SFCA+1, inaugurated to celebrate SFCA’s 30th season, and Wild Card Commissions, new in 2016. SFCA+1 is designed to expand the repertoire for chamber choir and a single instrument. Wild Card Commissions underwrites commissions to more composers whom SFCA admires, and this spring treats you to world premieres from two very diverse composers—Robin Estrada (March) and Veronika Krausas (June). SFCA couldn’t have imagined so many significant developments, built on its recent accomplishments:
- Winning the national Chorus America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming—in both 2012 and 2015;
- Collaborating with Grammy-winner Mads Tolling in June 2015;
- Collaborating with local composer/librettist Joshua Horowitz and the Veretski Pass instrumentalists to premiere the unique folk opera Lilith the Night Demon in May 2014;
- Releasing With Strings Attached, with The Alexander String Quartet, favorably reviewed by Fanfare Magazine.
As RNLMI continues to grow, SFCA’s new music initiatives will continue to widen, to support and showcase more living American composers.
Won’t you please help SFCA sustain this important work through your generous donation this season?
