Santa Clara Chorale Guest Artist Concert - October 27, 2006

Santa Clara Chorale in PragueI'm a proud Alto II member of the Santa Clara Chorale, a local choir made up of people of all ages who love to sing. There are also several music ministers from our parishes who participate in the chorale. We sing three concerts during the year as well as other shorter performances at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Joseph's "Season of Hope" (December 14, 2006) and Santana Row's Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony (November 14, 2006).

Schola CantorumThe Chorale is proud to announce its new Guest Artist Concert which showcases professional musicians from the Bay Area. The first Guest Artist Concert will highlight the 12-voice, professional Schola Cantorum San Francisco, under the direction of John Renke. The Schola Cantorum SF had been the weekly schola at the National Shrine of Saint Francis of Assisi for seven years and now offers its music for liturgies, concerts, education, and outreach. At this concert, they will present sacred masterpieces from six centuries. Treat yourself to an evening of gorgeous music by Gabrieli, Byrd, Britten, Durufle, Poulenc, Part, and Gorecki.

The Santa Clara Chorale offers the community the opportunity to grow musically and perform regularly in programs that bring significant choral music from the past and present to growing audiences in the beautiful Mission Santa Clara setting. Since its beginnings in 1963, the Chorale has performed in numerous locations in the Bay Area and carried its music abroad in several concert tours, most recently in the summer of 2006 to Prague, Salzburg, and Vienna.
