Composer-in-Residence Alexis Alrich discusses “Pedacitos de Cielo” and the inherent musicality of the Spanish language.
Our 2019-2020 Composer-Not-in-Residence discusses the “ecumenical edge” of his new “Cradle Song.”

As we continue to share reflections from our singers about the music on this program, we highlight two pieces: Britten’s Five Flower Songs and Fanny Hensel’s Abendlich schon rauscht der Wald — each of which explores contrasts in its own right.
Matt Van Brink speaks to his favorite nature-inspired works, and to the process of “growing” a piece from concept to premiere and beyond. His beautiful, brief piece, “The Lower Leaves of Trees,” is included on SFCA’s March Program, Out of the Garden, Into the Woods: from Paradise to Scary.
We’re pleased to announce that the winner of this year’s New Voices Project is Jarred Main for his piece “Cicadas,” which will be performed on our upcoming concerts in March, 2019.
We asked Artistic Director Magen Solomon to tell us a little bit about what to expect, and how she built a program out of contrasting approaches to the theme of Nature.
