San Francisco Choral Society

Brahms German Requiem



Friday, August 22, 2014   8:00 PM
Saturday, August 23, 2014   8:00 PM
Davies Symphony Hall - San Francisco

SF Choral continues its 25th anniversary season with one of our favorite works, returning to the comfortable and expansive setting of San Francisco’s most important concert venue for these performances.

The “German Requiem” is based on texts from the German-language Luther Bible, rather than the standard Latin Roman Catholic liturgy. As the majestic work took shape in the 1860s, “it became the central work of Brahms’ career, the one that established him as a composer of major stature,” says National Public Radio’s Ted Libbey. “It was not his intention to pattern his Requiem after the Latin mass for the dead, nor to proclaim what he felt were false hopes for resurrection. Instead, Ein Deutsches Requiem is a work of consolation for those left behind.”

SF Choral will be joined by soprano Marnie Breckenridge and bass Eugene Brancoveanu as soloists, and accompanied by the California Chamber Symphony.

8:00 pm
Davies Symphony Hall San Francisco, CA

AUDIUM

AUDIUM

 

Audium is the only theatre of its kind in the world, pioneering the exploration of space in music. The theatre's 176 speakers bathe listeners in sounds that move past, over, and under them. "Sound sculptures" are performed in darkness in the 49-seat theatre. When the concept of AUDIUM began taking shape in the late 1950s, space was a largely unexplored dimension in music composition. The composer who suspected space capable of revealing a new musical vocabulary found his pursuit blocked by the inadequacy of audio technology and performance spaces. Because of an unusual combination of art and technology—AUDIUM's creators, composer Stan Shaff and equipment designer Doug McEachern, were both professional musicians—AUDIUM's conception and realization were able to evolve jointly. AUDIUM is the only theatre anywhere constructed specifically for sound movement, utilizing the entire environment as a compositional tool.

"I have always been possessed by the evocative qualities all sounds seem to have, whether natural or electronic. Sounds touch deeper levels of our inner life, layers that lie just beneath the visual world. All sounds are communicative—sound as birth, life and death; sound as time and space; sound as object, environment or event. Audiences should feel sound as it bumps up against them, caresses, travels through, covers and enfolds them. "I ask listeners to see with their ears and feel with their bodies sounds as images, dreams and memories. As people walk into a work, they become part of its realization. From entrance to exit, AUDIUM is a sound-space continuum."
—Stan Shaff, Composer

In a modern take on Frederick Knott’s 1960’s thriller, Susy, a young newlywed and Greenwich Village artist who has recently lost her eyesight, finds herself accidentally entrapped in a murderous plot devised by ruthless drug dealers.  The question is... will Susy’s ingenuity and her other four senses be enough to help her get the best of the cold-as-ice criminals, even though she can’t see them?  Is her blindness really a disability, or is it an advantage?  Who’s really in control... in the dark?

AUDIUM

 

Audium is the only theatre of its kind in the world, pioneering the exploration of space in music. The theatre's 176 speakers bathe listeners in sounds that move past, over, and under them. "Sound sculptures" are performed in darkness in the 49-seat theatre. When the concept of AUDIUM began taking shape in the late 1950s, space was a largely unexplored dimension in music composition. The composer who suspected space capable of revealing a new musical vocabulary found his pursuit blocked by the inadequacy of audio technology and performance spaces. Because of an unusual combination of art and technology—AUDIUM's creators, composer Stan Shaff and equipment designer Doug McEachern, were both professional musicians—AUDIUM's conception and realization were able to evolve jointly. AUDIUM is the only theatre anywhere constructed specifically for sound movement, utilizing the entire environment as a compositional tool.

"I have always been possessed by the evocative qualities all sounds seem to have, whether natural or electronic. Sounds touch deeper levels of our inner life, layers that lie just beneath the visual world. All sounds are communicative—sound as birth, life and death; sound as time and space; sound as object, environment or event. Audiences should feel sound as it bumps up against them, caresses, travels through, covers and enfolds them. "I ask listeners to see with their ears and feel with their bodies sounds as images, dreams and memories. As people walk into a work, they become part of its realization. From entrance to exit, AUDIUM is a sound-space continuum."

AUDIUM

AUDIUM

 

Audium is the only theatre of its kind in the world, pioneering the exploration of space in music. The theatre's 176 speakers bathe listeners in sounds that move past, over, and under them. "Sound sculptures" are performed in darkness in the 49-seat theatre. When the concept of AUDIUM began taking shape in the late 1950s, space was a largely unexplored dimension in music composition. The composer who suspected space capable of revealing a new musical vocabulary found his pursuit blocked by the inadequacy of audio technology and performance spaces. Because of an unusual combination of art and technology—AUDIUM's creators, composer Stan Shaff and equipment designer Doug McEachern, were both professional musicians—AUDIUM's conception and realization were able to evolve jointly. AUDIUM is the only theatre anywhere constructed specifically for sound movement, utilizing the entire environment as a compositional tool.

"I have always been possessed by the evocative qualities all sounds seem to have, whether natural or electronic. Sounds touch deeper levels of our inner life, layers that lie just beneath the visual world. All sounds are communicative—sound as birth, life and death; sound as time and space; sound as object, environment or event. Audiences should feel sound as it bumps up against them, caresses, travels through, covers and enfolds them. "I ask listeners to see with their ears and feel with their bodies sounds as images, dreams and memories. As people walk into a work, they become part of its realization. From entrance to exit, AUDIUM is a sound-space continuum."
—Stan Shaff, Composer

In a modern take on Frederick Knott’s 1960’s thriller, Susy, a young newlywed and Greenwich Village artist who has recently lost her eyesight, finds herself accidentally entrapped in a murderous plot devised by ruthless drug dealers.  The question is... will Susy’s ingenuity and her other four senses be enough to help her get the best of the cold-as-ice criminals, even though she can’t see them?  Is her blindness really a disability, or is it an advantage?  Who’s really in control... in the dark?

From Haydn to Schoenfield:
Rockin’ the Sonata with the Saint Michael Trio
Friday, September 19, 2014   7:30 PM
Music at its most fun! Both Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) and Paul Schoenfield (1947- ) are highly formal in their sonata form. Yet Haydn’s classical sonatas embodied the formalism of the 18th-century Enlightenment, while Detroit native Paul Schoenfield’s “Cafe Music” (1987) expresses the whimsy and energy of a 21st-century urban metropolis.Daniel Cher (violin), Russell Hancock (piano, lecturer), and Michel Flexer (cello) demonstrate through illustrated lecture and performance how two utterly different composers use the same tools to express the sentiment of their age.An antidote to the staid world of classical music, the artists earn glowing praise for making their trademark ‘informances’ interesting, accessible, and oftentimes funny.

The Roman Republic (509-27 BCE)
Friday, October 24, 2014   7:30 PM
Saturday, October 25, 2014   10:00 AM
From its legendary origins as a tiny cluster of villages in the Italian countryside, ancient Rome grew into a vast metropolis and the dominant power of the Mediterranean. Leaders of the Roman Republic established a constitutional framework that embodied principles of separation of powers, checks and balances, and the rights and duties of citizenship (for some) — a model that endured for centuries. Ultimately civil strife exacerbated by wide disparities in social and economic wellbeing and the strains of governing a far-flung empire doomed Cicero’s Republican Rome in the first century BCE. From its modeling of democratic values to its golden age of drama and its Greek- and Etruscaninspired art, the Roman Republic was a major turning point in western civilization that inspires us to this day.

Charlemagne: The Father of Western Europe
Friday, February 27, 2015   7:30 PM
Saturday, February 28, 2015   10:00 AM
Even 1200 years after his death in 814, Charlemagne still symbolizes a critical turning point in Western civilization. King of the Franks and Lombards, Emperor of a New Rome, Charles the Great ushered in the Carolingian Renaissance and fathered a dynasty. While political unity proved ephemeral, his economic, administrative, educational, and religious reforms created an enduring cultural identity that encompassed the heartland of today’s Western Europe. For the first time, European political power shifted from the Mediterranean’s Byzantine and Islamic empires to continental (and Catholic) Europe.

The Great War: Culutral Reverberations Across Europe
Friday, May 1, 2015   7:30 PM
Saturday, May 2, 2015   10:00 AM
The First World War collapsed empires, redrew national boundaries, caused cataclysmic change in a generation of Europeans, and revolutionized long-held world views all across Europe. From 1914–18, “The Great War” raged amid a vast crisis of cultural confidence. The war to end all wars was a monumental catastrophe, one of history’s major turning points. Yet among The Great War’s legacies of drastic political, social, and cultural change has been its immense artistic response in music, film, art, and literature.

Mountain Hardwear presents Days Of My Youth

A film by MSP Films and Red Bull Media House



Friday, September 19, 2014
Palace of Fine Arts Theater - San Francisco

Red Bull Media House, in association with MSP Films, presents “DAYS OF MY YOUTH”, a new film that examines every skier’s lifelong affinity for the sport. Narrated to the prolific readings of Alan Watts, this film exposes the many joys and occasional struggles associated with a lifestyle built around skiing. 

Filmed over two years using state of the art techniques and technologies, this movie offers a unique glimpse into the journey of self-discovery that every skier experiences.  The team, along with an intimate cast of skiing’s modern day superstars, have looked through the lens in a new way to capture moments that redefine what is possible on skis.  Watch as these premier athletes explore the globe and escape to mountainous playgrounds to challenge their innermost hopes and fears.  “DAYS OF MY YOUTH” reminds us of that special feeling of our very first time on skis, and proves that skiing can keep you feeling young for a lifetime.

Chanticleer 2014-2015 Season

The Gypsy in My Soul



The Gypsy in My Soul
September 19–28, 2014
The Gypsy in my Soul traverses the impulses we all share: longing for community, wanderlust, curiosity, a reverence for the natural world around us, and the gypsy spirit that is somewhere within us all. Songs of sorrow and longing are set by Palestrina, Byrd, and Victoria. The new places a wandering soul may encounter are explored by Gabrieli, Gesualdo and Poulenc. The spirituality of nature and place in many cultures are represented by Villa-Lobos, Alfvén, Ligeti, Bartok, and Kodaly. Gypsies left a considerable impression on the culture of southern Spain, captured in the work of Steven Sametz and Carmen Cavallaro, as well as in folk music from Serbia and Romania. The free-roaming gypsy spirit is idealized in several works from the Great American Songbook, including arrangements by Chanticleer audience favorites Joseph Jennings and Gene Puerling, as well as newly commissioned arrangements and gems from Chanticleer’s latest studio album, Someone New.

A Chanticleer Christmas
December 12–23, 2014
A Chanticleer Christmas is Chanticleer’s beloved offering, a favorite with audiences and critics alike. The warmth and profundity of A Chanticleer Christmas are revealed in a telling of the Christmas story in Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony, traditional carols, Franz Biebl’s “Ave Maria” (Chanticleer’s most requested Christmas selection) and Chanticleer’s traditional medley of spirituals.

National Youth Choral Festival
March 30, 2015
Chanticleer takes its extensive world-wide education program to new heights with its second National Youth Choral Festival™. The festival, which takes place between March 27 and 30 in San Francisco, will bring together over 200 student singers in 10 high-school choirs from across the country. The four-day choral immersion will place the visiting choirs in close, intensive interaction with the members of Chanticleer, who will coach them in all areas critical to the choral art. The climactic event on March 30 will feature Chanticleer and the choirs on stage at Davies Symphony Hall performing a gala concert with special guest artists.

Spanish Gold
June 10–17, 2015
The exuberant creative richness of 16th century Spain left a legacy of magnificent and sensuous music that profoundly influenced the rest of Europe and our own continent. As Spain enjoyed its Golden Century (El Siglo de Oro), art and music of inestimable beauty were created by a wealth of original voices, from the sublime religious mysticism of Tomás Luis de Victoria and Cristóbal de Morales to the nobility of Francisco Guerrero and the earthy folksongs of Mateo Flecha. The music of 16th century Spain and the New World has always been at the heart of Chanticleer’s repertoire, transporting us happily back to our early music roots.

The Gypsy in my Soul traverses the impulses we all share: longing for community, wanderlust, curiosity, a reverence for the natural world around us, and the gypsy spirit that is somewhere within us all. Songs of sorrow and longing are set by Palestrina, Byrd, and Victoria. The new places a wandering soul may encounter are explored by Gabrieli, Gesualdo and Poulenc. The spirituality of nature and place in many cultures are represented by Villa-Lobos, Alfvén, Ligeti, Bartok, and Kodaly. Gypsies left a considerable impression on the culture of southern Spain, captured in the work of Steven Sametz and Carmen Cavallaro, as well as in folk music from Serbia and Romania. The free-roaming gypsy spirit is idealized in several works from the Great American Songbook, including arrangements by Chanticleer audience favorites Joseph Jennings and Gene Puerling, as well as newly commissioned arrangements and gems from Chanticleer’s latest studio album, Someone New.

A Chanticleer Christmas
December 12–23, 2014
A Chanticleer Christmas is Chanticleer’s beloved offering, a favorite with audiences and critics alike. The warmth and profundity of A Chanticleer Christmas are revealed in a telling of the Christmas story in Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony, traditional carols, Franz Biebl’s “Ave Maria” (Chanticleer’s most requested Christmas selection) and Chanticleer’s traditional medley of spirituals.

National Youth Choral Festival
March 30, 2015
Chanticleer takes its extensive world-wide education program to new heights with its second National Youth Choral Festival™. The festival, which takes place between March 27 and 30 in San Francisco, will bring together over 200 student singers in 10 high-school choirs from across the country. The four-day choral immersion will place the visiting choirs in close, intensive interaction with the members of Chanticleer, who will coach them in all areas critical to the choral art. The climactic event on March 30 will feature Chanticleer and the choirs on stage at Davies Symphony Hall performing a gala concert with special guest artists.

Spanish Gold
June 10–17, 2015
The exuberant creative richness of 16th century Spain left a legacy of magnificent and sensuous music that profoundly influenced the rest of Europe and our own continent. As Spain enjoyed its Golden Century (El Siglo de Oro), art and music of inestimable beauty were created by a wealth of original voices, from the sublime religious mysticism of Tomás Luis de Victoria and Cristóbal de Morales to the nobility of Francisco Guerrero and the earthy folksongs of Mateo Flecha. The music of 16th century Spain and the New World has always been at the heart of Chanticleer’s repertoire, transporting us happily back to our early music roots.

AUDIUM

AUDIUM

 

Audium is the only theatre of its kind in the world, pioneering the exploration of space in music. The theatre's 176 speakers bathe listeners in sounds that move past, over, and under them. "Sound sculptures" are performed in darkness in the 49-seat theatre. When the concept of AUDIUM began taking shape in the late 1950s, space was a largely unexplored dimension in music composition. The composer who suspected space capable of revealing a new musical vocabulary found his pursuit blocked by the inadequacy of audio technology and performance spaces. Because of an unusual combination of art and technology—AUDIUM's creators, composer Stan Shaff and equipment designer Doug McEachern, were both professional musicians—AUDIUM's conception and realization were able to evolve jointly. AUDIUM is the only theatre anywhere constructed specifically for sound movement, utilizing the entire environment as a compositional tool.

"I have always been possessed by the evocative qualities all sounds seem to have, whether natural or electronic. Sounds touch deeper levels of our inner life, layers that lie just beneath the visual world. All sounds are communicative—sound as birth, life and death; sound as time and space; sound as object, environment or event. Audiences should feel sound as it bumps up against them, caresses, travels through, covers and enfolds them. "I ask listeners to see with their ears and feel with their bodies sounds as images, dreams and memories. As people walk into a work, they become part of its realization. From entrance to exit, AUDIUM is a sound-space continuum."
—Stan Shaff, Composer

In a modern take on Frederick Knott’s 1960’s thriller, Susy, a young newlywed and Greenwich Village artist who has recently lost her eyesight, finds herself accidentally entrapped in a murderous plot devised by ruthless drug dealers.  The question is... will Susy’s ingenuity and her other four senses be enough to help her get the best of the cold-as-ice criminals, even though she can’t see them?  Is her blindness really a disability, or is it an advantage?  Who’s really in control... in the dark?

An Evening with Gordon Lightfoot

50 Years on the Carefree Highway Tour



Thursday, October 2, 2014   8:00 PM
Davies Symphony Hall - San Francisco

Legendary balladeer Gordon Lightfoot, who emerged from the 1960's coffeehouse scene with  ground-breaking multi-platinum albums and eloquent musical masterpieces, performs his first San Francisco concert in 30 years.  With his rich warm voice, nimble guitar technique and tight knit acoustic ensemble, Lightfoot weaves tales of love and longing with such timeless, thought-provoking songs as "If You Could Read My Mind," "Sundown," "Early Morning Ran," "Carefree Highway," "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald," "Canadian Railroad Trilogy" and many more.

8:00 pm
Davies Symphony Hall San Francisco, CA

AUDIUM

AUDIUM

 

Audium is the only theatre of its kind in the world, pioneering the exploration of space in music. The theatre's 176 speakers bathe listeners in sounds that move past, over, and under them. "Sound sculptures" are performed in darkness in the 49-seat theatre. When the concept of AUDIUM began taking shape in the late 1950s, space was a largely unexplored dimension in music composition. The composer who suspected space capable of revealing a new musical vocabulary found his pursuit blocked by the inadequacy of audio technology and performance spaces. Because of an unusual combination of art and technology—AUDIUM's creators, composer Stan Shaff and equipment designer Doug McEachern, were both professional musicians—AUDIUM's conception and realization were able to evolve jointly. AUDIUM is the only theatre anywhere constructed specifically for sound movement, utilizing the entire environment as a compositional tool.

"I have always been possessed by the evocative qualities all sounds seem to have, whether natural or electronic. Sounds touch deeper levels of our inner life, layers that lie just beneath the visual world. All sounds are communicative—sound as birth, life and death; sound as time and space; sound as object, environment or event. Audiences should feel sound as it bumps up against them, caresses, travels through, covers and enfolds them. "I ask listeners to see with their ears and feel with their bodies sounds as images, dreams and memories. As people walk into a work, they become part of its realization. From entrance to exit, AUDIUM is a sound-space continuum."
—Stan Shaff, Composer

San Francisco Performances 2014-2015 Subscription Packages

Piano Series
Includes 4 performances



Subscribe to San Francisco Performances and you’ll enjoy the greatest flexibility, the most convenience and the best value when you subscribe to any of our packages. Not sure about your future plans? Our ticket exchange service—free of fees for subscribers—takes the risk out of ordering in advance. Whether you purchase a fixed package series (such as Dance or Piano) or a Make-Your-Own Series of any 6 performances, you’ll enjoy ALL of these benefits:
 
PRIORITY SEATING: When you subscribe before single tickets go on sale, you’ll be seated in advance of the general public—assuring you of the best available locations.

SAVINGS: You save up to 13% off single ticket prices when you purchase any fixed series. You save 10% per ticket on Make-Your-Own subscriptions.

TICKET EXCHANGE PRIVILEGES FREE OF FEES: As a subscriber, you may exchange your tickets for another event with no fee, up to one day prior to the original concert (48 hours prior for weekend performances). That’s a savings of $10 per exchange!
 
FREE BONUS PERFORMANCES: As a subscriber, you will receive invitations to two annual events: our special Gift Concert (our gift to you for being a supporter) and the Naumburg Competition Winner Concert. These events are not to be missed—in past years, these bonus events have featured extraordinary artists at the dawn of their professional careers, including pianists Lang Lang and Steven Osborne, violinist Vadim Gluzman, and the Eroica Trio. Details will be available later in the season.

DISCOUNTS ON SINGLE TICKETS ALL SEASON LONG: When you order tickets through our exclusive subscriber services line (415-677-0325), you'll receive a 10% discount on single tickets you buy throughout the season.

FREE EMAIL REMINDER SERVICE: We’ll remind you of your performance dates by email a few days prior to each event (email registration required).

FREE NEWSLETTER: Our newsletter, Quarternotes, is rich with behind-the-scenes articles, provocative insights into upcoming events, breaking news and more.

FREE TICKET INSURANCE: If you should ever misplace your tickets, we will re-print duplicates for you at no additional charge and hold them at the Box Office.

Snatam Kaur, GuruGanesha & Friends

A Benefit for Creating Our Future



Saturday, October 18, 2014   8:00 PM
Nourse Theater - San Francisco

Snatam Kaur is one of the most popular New Age artists of our time, selling over 70,000 albums a year. You’ll find enthusiastic press about her music everywhere from the Houston Chronicle to the Hindustan Times and she’s been featured in publications such as Oprah’s “O” Magazine, Yoga Journal, LA Yoga, the Light Connection and the Body Mind Spirit Guide. She recently graced the pages of Oprah’s “O” magazine and performed for Oprah on her birthday in Maui. Like countless others around the planet, Oprah “plays her [music] everyday before meditating”. Snatam Kaur’s albums have topped New Age Retailer’s Top 20 lists every year since 2004. She was the only artist to have 3 albums in the Top 20 in a single year. Her albums have consistently ranked in the top 20 in both Indie New Age and Indie World Music on Amazon.

Her music can be heard around the world in venues from yoga studios to schools to Hollywood films and in the homes of her fans worldwide. An international favorite with fans across the U.S, Europe, Asia, South America and the South Pacific, Snatam Kaur performs at over 60 venues each year, from the Bahamas to Russia. One fan spoke for all when he admitted, “We come to Snatam’s concerts to experience the beautiful atmosphere her voice creates, to heal and grow.”

Snatam Kaur, whose father was a manager for the Grateful Dead, has an amazing ability to transform traditional chants into a contemporary sound that appeals to the modern ear and awakens an ancient yearning in the soul. Sacred Sounds Radio calls her music “spiritually uplifting and deeply soul cleansing.” Ram Dass, celebrated author of Be Here Now, says that “in Snatam’s voice...there is purity, clarity, and love.”

The Roman Republic



From Haydn to Schoenfield:
Rockin’ the Sonata with the Saint Michael Trio
Friday, September 19, 2014   7:30 PM
Music at its most fun! Both Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) and Paul Schoenfield (1947- ) are highly formal in their sonata form. Yet Haydn’s classical sonatas embodied the formalism of the 18th-century Enlightenment, while Detroit native Paul Schoenfield’s “Cafe Music” (1987) expresses the whimsy and energy of a 21st-century urban metropolis.Daniel Cher (violin), Russell Hancock (piano, lecturer), and Michel Flexer (cello) demonstrate through illustrated lecture and performance how two utterly different composers use the same tools to express the sentiment of their age.An antidote to the staid world of classical music, the artists earn glowing praise for making their trademark ‘informances’ interesting, accessible, and oftentimes funny.

The Roman Republic (509-27 BCE)
Friday, October 24, 2014   7:30 PM
Saturday, October 25, 2014   10:00 AM
From its legendary origins as a tiny cluster of villages in the Italian countryside, ancient Rome grew into a vast metropolis and the dominant power of the Mediterranean. Leaders of the Roman Republic established a constitutional framework that embodied principles of separation of powers, checks and balances, and the rights and duties of citizenship (for some) — a model that endured for centuries. Ultimately civil strife exacerbated by wide disparities in social and economic wellbeing and the strains of governing a far-flung empire doomed Cicero’s Republican Rome in the first century BCE. From its modeling of democratic values to its golden age of drama and its Greek- and Etruscaninspired art, the Roman Republic was a major turning point in western civilization that inspires us to this day.

Charlemagne: The Father of Western Europe
Friday, February 27, 2015   7:30 PM
Saturday, February 28, 2015   10:00 AM
Even 1200 years after his death in 814, Charlemagne still symbolizes a critical turning point in Western civilization. King of the Franks and Lombards, Emperor of a New Rome, Charles the Great ushered in the Carolingian Renaissance and fathered a dynasty. While political unity proved ephemeral, his economic, administrative, educational, and religious reforms created an enduring cultural identity that encompassed the heartland of today’s Western Europe. For the first time, European political power shifted from the Mediterranean’s Byzantine and Islamic empires to continental (and Catholic) Europe.

The Great War: Culutral Reverberations Across Europe
Friday, May 1, 2015   7:30 PM
Saturday, May 2, 2015   10:00 AM
The First World War collapsed empires, redrew national boundaries, caused cataclysmic change in a generation of Europeans, and revolutionized long-held world views all across Europe. From 1914–18, “The Great War” raged amid a vast crisis of cultural confidence. The war to end all wars was a monumental catastrophe, one of history’s major turning points. Yet among The Great War’s legacies of drastic political, social, and cultural change has been its immense artistic response in music, film, art, and literature.

San Francisco Performances 2014-2015 Subscription Packages

Dance Series
Includes 3 performances



Subscribe to San Francisco Performances and you’ll enjoy the greatest flexibility, the most convenience and the best value when you subscribe to any of our packages. Not sure about your future plans? Our ticket exchange service—free of fees for subscribers—takes the risk out of ordering in advance. Whether you purchase a fixed package series (such as Dance or Piano) or a Make-Your-Own Series of any 6 performances, you’ll enjoy ALL of these benefits:
 
PRIORITY SEATING: When you subscribe before single tickets go on sale, you’ll be seated in advance of the general public—assuring you of the best available locations.

SAVINGS: You save up to 13% off single ticket prices when you purchase any fixed series. You save 10% per ticket on Make-Your-Own subscriptions.

TICKET EXCHANGE PRIVILEGES FREE OF FEES: As a subscriber, you may exchange your tickets for another event with no fee, up to one day prior to the original concert (48 hours prior for weekend performances). That’s a savings of $10 per exchange!
 
FREE BONUS PERFORMANCES: As a subscriber, you will receive invitations to two annual events: our special Gift Concert (our gift to you for being a supporter) and the Naumburg Competition Winner Concert. These events are not to be missed—in past years, these bonus events have featured extraordinary artists at the dawn of their professional careers, including pianists Lang Lang and Steven Osborne, violinist Vadim Gluzman, and the Eroica Trio. Details will be available later in the season.

DISCOUNTS ON SINGLE TICKETS ALL SEASON LONG: When you order tickets through our exclusive subscriber services line (415-677-0325), you'll receive a 10% discount on single tickets you buy throughout the season.

FREE EMAIL REMINDER SERVICE: We’ll remind you of your performance dates by email a few days prior to each event (email registration required).

FREE NEWSLETTER: Our newsletter, Quarternotes, is rich with behind-the-scenes articles, provocative insights into upcoming events, breaking news and more.

FREE TICKET INSURANCE: If you should ever misplace your tickets, we will re-print duplicates for you at no additional charge and hold them at the Box Office.

San Francisco Performances 2014-2015 Subscription Packages

Saturday Mornings in Berkeley
Includes 4 performances



Subscribe to San Francisco Performances and you’ll enjoy the greatest flexibility, the most convenience and the best value when you subscribe to any of our packages. Not sure about your future plans? Our ticket exchange service—free of fees for subscribers—takes the risk out of ordering in advance. Whether you purchase a fixed package series (such as Dance or Piano) or a Make-Your-Own Series of any 6 performances, you’ll enjoy ALL of these benefits:
 
PRIORITY SEATING: When you subscribe before single tickets go on sale, you’ll be seated in advance of the general public—assuring you of the best available locations.

SAVINGS: You save up to 13% off single ticket prices when you purchase any fixed series. You save 10% per ticket on Make-Your-Own subscriptions.

TICKET EXCHANGE PRIVILEGES FREE OF FEES: As a subscriber, you may exchange your tickets for another event with no fee, up to one day prior to the original concert (48 hours prior for weekend performances). That’s a savings of $10 per exchange!
 
FREE BONUS PERFORMANCES: As a subscriber, you will receive invitations to two annual events: our special Gift Concert (our gift to you for being a supporter) and the Naumburg Competition Winner Concert. These events are not to be missed—in past years, these bonus events have featured extraordinary artists at the dawn of their professional careers, including pianists Lang Lang and Steven Osborne, violinist Vadim Gluzman, and the Eroica Trio. Details will be available later in the season.

DISCOUNTS ON SINGLE TICKETS ALL SEASON LONG: When you order tickets through our exclusive subscriber services line (415-677-0325), you'll receive a 10% discount on single tickets you buy throughout the season.

FREE EMAIL REMINDER SERVICE: We’ll remind you of your performance dates by email a few days prior to each event (email registration required).

FREE NEWSLETTER: Our newsletter, Quarternotes, is rich with behind-the-scenes articles, provocative insights into upcoming events, breaking news and more.

FREE TICKET INSURANCE: If you should ever misplace your tickets, we will re-print duplicates for you at no additional charge and hold them at the Box Office.

Chanticleer 2014-2015 Season

A Chanticleer Christmas



The Gypsy in My Soul
September 19–28, 2014
The Gypsy in my Soul traverses the impulses we all share: longing for community, wanderlust, curiosity, a reverence for the natural world around us, and the gypsy spirit that is somewhere within us all. Songs of sorrow and longing are set by Palestrina, Byrd, and Victoria. The new places a wandering soul may encounter are explored by Gabrieli, Gesualdo and Poulenc. The spirituality of nature and place in many cultures are represented by Villa-Lobos, Alfvén, Ligeti, Bartok, and Kodaly. Gypsies left a considerable impression on the culture of southern Spain, captured in the work of Steven Sametz and Carmen Cavallaro, as well as in folk music from Serbia and Romania. The free-roaming gypsy spirit is idealized in several works from the Great American Songbook, including arrangements by Chanticleer audience favorites Joseph Jennings and Gene Puerling, as well as newly commissioned arrangements and gems from Chanticleer’s latest studio album, Someone New.

A Chanticleer Christmas
December 12–23, 2014
A Chanticleer Christmas is Chanticleer’s beloved offering, a favorite with audiences and critics alike. The warmth and profundity of A Chanticleer Christmas are revealed in a telling of the Christmas story in Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony, traditional carols, Franz Biebl’s “Ave Maria” (Chanticleer’s most requested Christmas selection) and Chanticleer’s traditional medley of spirituals.

National Youth Choral Festival
March 30, 2015
Chanticleer takes its extensive world-wide education program to new heights with its second National Youth Choral Festival™. The festival, which takes place between March 27 and 30 in San Francisco, will bring together over 200 student singers in 10 high-school choirs from across the country. The four-day choral immersion will place the visiting choirs in close, intensive interaction with the members of Chanticleer, who will coach them in all areas critical to the choral art. The climactic event on March 30 will feature Chanticleer and the choirs on stage at Davies Symphony Hall performing a gala concert with special guest artists.

Spanish Gold
June 10–17, 2015
The exuberant creative richness of 16th century Spain left a legacy of magnificent and sensuous music that profoundly influenced the rest of Europe and our own continent. As Spain enjoyed its Golden Century (El Siglo de Oro), art and music of inestimable beauty were created by a wealth of original voices, from the sublime religious mysticism of Tomás Luis de Victoria and Cristóbal de Morales to the nobility of Francisco Guerrero and the earthy folksongs of Mateo Flecha. The music of 16th century Spain and the New World has always been at the heart of Chanticleer’s repertoire, transporting us happily back to our early music roots.

The Kinsey Sicks

"Oy Vey in a Manger"



Saturday, December 13, 2014
The Castro Theatre - San Francisco

"The hottest ticket in town ... taking the cabaret world by storm ... voices sweet as birdsong."
~ New York Times

"Inventive...riotiously funny...sublime."
~ Variety

"One of the more uniquely original (and thoroughly fun and entertaining) acts we have encountered in years... rich four-part harmony... hilarious... this is one act that should not be missed, either in person or on CD."
~ Billboard Magazine

“If you haven’t made the acquaintance of The Kinsey Sicks, it’s high time you did.”
 ~ Washington Post

For over 20 years The Kinsey Sicks, America's Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet, has served up a feast of music and comedy to audiences at performing arts centers, music venues, and comedy festivals in every kind of town you can imagine. Their phenomenal performance record includes an Off-Broadway show, an extended run in Las Vegas, two feature films, eight albums, and appearances throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Australia. The Kinsey Sicks' award-winning a cappella singing, sharp satire, and over-the-top drag have earned them a diverse and devoted following.

In "Oy Vey in a Manger", we find Rachel, Winnie, Trixie, and Trampolina trying to sell off their manger - yes, that manger - before it's foreclosed upon. Crises arise, secrets are revealed, Jewish-Gentile tensions surface, and mayhem ensues - all in glorious four-part harmony.

"Oy Vey" boasts The Kinsey Sicks' reinterpretations of holiday classics, such as "God Bless Ye Femmy Lesbians," "Satan Baby", and "I'm Dreaming of a Betty White Christmas", plus hilarious Jewish satiric fare, including "Don't Be Happy, Worry", the Chanukah spa classic "I Had a Little Facial" and, of course, the requisite Yiddish production number, "Papirossen."

The Kinsey Sicks promise you that you will not be disappointed. You’ll be appalled, but not disappointed.

Please note that VIP seating at The Castro Theater includes exclusive Kinsey Sicks schwag!

June 10–17, 2015
The exuberant creative richness of 16th century Spain left a legacy of magnificent and sensuous music that profoundly influenced the rest of Europe and our own continent. As Spain enjoyed its Golden Century (El Siglo de Oro), art and music of inestimable beauty were created by a wealth of original voices, from the sublime religious mysticism of Tomás Luis de Victoria and Cristóbal de Morales to the nobility of Francisco Guerrero and the earthy folksongs of Mateo Flecha. The music of 16th century Spain and the New World has always been at the heart of Chanticleer’s repertoire, transporting us happily back to our early music roots.

A Chanticleer Christmas



The Gypsy in My Soul
September 19–28, 2014
The Gypsy in my Soul traverses the impulses we all share: longing for community, wanderlust, curiosity, a reverence for the natural world around us, and the gypsy spirit that is somewhere within us all. Songs of sorrow and longing are set by Palestrina, Byrd, and Victoria. The new places a wandering soul may encounter are explored by Gabrieli, Gesualdo and Poulenc. The spirituality of nature and place in many cultures are represented by Villa-Lobos, Alfvén, Ligeti, Bartok, and Kodaly. Gypsies left a considerable impression on the culture of southern Spain, captured in the work of Steven Sametz and Carmen Cavallaro, as well as in folk music from Serbia and Romania. The free-roaming gypsy spirit is idealized in several works from the Great American Songbook, including arrangements by Chanticleer audience favorites Joseph Jennings and Gene Puerling, as well as newly commissioned arrangements and gems from Chanticleer’s latest studio album, Someone New.

A Chanticleer Christmas
December 12–23, 2014
A Chanticleer Christmas is Chanticleer’s beloved offering, a favorite with audiences and critics alike. The warmth and profundity of A Chanticleer Christmas are revealed in a telling of the Christmas story in Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony, traditional carols, Franz Biebl’s “Ave Maria” (Chanticleer’s most requested Christmas selection) and Chanticleer’s traditional medley of spirituals.

National Youth Choral Festival
March 30, 2015
Chanticleer takes its extensive world-wide education program to new heights with its second National Youth Choral Festival™. The festival, which takes place between March 27 and 30 in San Francisco, will bring together over 200 student singers in 10 high-school choirs from across the country. The four-day choral immersion will place the visiting choirs in close, intensive interaction with the members of Chanticleer, who will coach them in all areas critical to the choral art. The climactic event on March 30 will feature Chanticleer and the choirs on stage at Davies Symphony Hall performing a gala concert with special guest artists.

Spanish Gold
June 10–17, 2015
The exuberant creative richness of 16th century Spain left a legacy of magnificent and sensuous music that profoundly influenced the rest of Europe and our own continent. As Spain enjoyed its Golden Century (El Siglo de Oro), art and music of inestimable beauty were created by a wealth of original voices, from the sublime religious mysticism of Tomás Luis de Victoria and Cristóbal de Morales to the nobility of Francisco Guerrero and the earthy folksongs of Mateo Flecha. The music of 16th century Spain and the New World has always been at the heart of Chanticleer’s repertoire, transporting us happily back to our early music roots.

A Chanticleer Christmas



The Gypsy in My Soul
September 19–28, 2014
The Gypsy in my Soul traverses the impulses we all share: longing for community, wanderlust, curiosity, a reverence for the natural world around us, and the gypsy spirit that is somewhere within us all. Songs of sorrow and longing are set by Palestrina, Byrd, and Victoria. The new places a wandering soul may encounter are explored by Gabrieli, Gesualdo and Poulenc. The spirituality of nature and place in many cultures are represented by Villa-Lobos, Alfvén, Ligeti, Bartok, and Kodaly. Gypsies left a considerable impression on the culture of southern Spain, captured in the work of Steven Sametz and Carmen Cavallaro, as well as in folk music from Serbia and Romania. The free-roaming gypsy spirit is idealized in several works from the Great American Songbook, including arrangements by Chanticleer audience favorites Joseph Jennings and Gene Puerling, as well as newly commissioned arrangements and gems from Chanticleer’s latest studio album, Someone New.

Straight No Chaser

Live in Concert



Sunday, December 28, 2014   8:00 PM
Davies Symphony Hall - San Francisco

If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses... think again. Straight No Chaser (SNC) are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. As original member Randy Stine comments, “We take the music very seriously; we just don’t take ourselves too seriously.” In the process, they are reinventing the idea of a cappella on the modern pop landscape.

Originally formed over a dozen years ago while students together at Indiana University, the group has reassembled and reemerged as a phenomenon - with a massive fanbase, more than 20 million views on YouTube, numerous national TV appearances, and proven success with two holiday releases, 2008’s HOLIDAY SPIRITS and 2009’s CHRISTMAS CHEERS as well as WITH A TWIST, released this spring. In an era when so much pop music is the product of digital processing and vocal pro-tooling, Straight No Chaser is the real deal - the captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense… and with a sense of humor.

Whether you purchase a fixed package series (such as Dance or Piano) or a Make-Your-Own Series of any 6 performances, you’ll enjoy ALL of these benefits:
 
PRIORITY SEATING: When you subscribe before single tickets go on sale, you’ll be seated in advance of the general public—assuring you of the best available locations.

SAVINGS: You save up to 13% off single ticket prices when you purchase any fixed series. You save 10% per ticket on Make-Your-Own subscriptions.

TICKET EXCHANGE PRIVILEGES FREE OF FEES: As a subscriber, you may exchange your tickets for another event with no fee, up to one day prior to the original concert (48 hours prior for weekend performances). That’s a savings of $10 per exchange!
 
FREE BONUS PERFORMANCES: As a subscriber, you will receive invitations to two annual events: our special Gift Concert (our gift to you for being a supporter) and the Naumburg Competition Winner Concert.

San Francisco Performances 2014-2015 Subscription Packages

Young Masters Series
Includes 3 performances



Subscribe to San Francisco Performances and you’ll enjoy the greatest flexibility, the most convenience and the best value when you subscribe to any of our packages. Not sure about your future plans? Our ticket exchange service—free of fees for subscribers—takes the risk out of ordering in advance. Whether you purchase a fixed package series (such as Dance or Piano) or a Make-Your-Own Series of any 6 performances, you’ll enjoy ALL of these benefits:
 
PRIORITY SEATING: When you subscribe before single tickets go on sale, you’ll be seated in advance of the general public—assuring you of the best available locations.

SAVINGS: You save up to 13% off single ticket prices when you purchase any fixed series. You save 10% per ticket on Make-Your-Own subscriptions.

TICKET EXCHANGE PRIVILEGES FREE OF FEES: As a subscriber, you may exchange your tickets for another event with no fee, up to one day prior to the original concert (48 hours prior for weekend performances). That’s a savings of $10 per exchange!
 
FREE BONUS PERFORMANCES: As a subscriber, you will receive invitations to two annual events: our special Gift Concert (our gift to you for being a supporter) and the Naumburg Competition Winner Concert. These events are not to be missed—in past years, these bonus events have featured extraordinary artists at the dawn of their professional careers, including pianists Lang Lang and Steven Osborne, violinist Vadim Gluzman, and the Eroica Trio. Details will be available later in the season.

DISCOUNTS ON SINGLE TICKETS ALL SEASON LONG: When you order tickets through our exclusive subscriber services line (415-677-0325), you'll receive a 10% discount on single tickets you buy throughout the season.

FREE EMAIL REMINDER SERVICE: We’ll remind you of your performance dates by email a few days prior to each event (email registration required).

FREE NEWSLETTER: Our newsletter, Quarternotes, is rich with behind-the-scenes articles, provocative insights into upcoming events, breaking news and more.

FREE TICKET INSURANCE: If you should ever misplace your tickets, we will re-print duplicates for you at no additional charge and hold them at the Box Office.

San Francisco Performances 2014-2015 Subscription Packages

Andras Schiff Series
Includes 2 performances



Subscribe to San Francisco Performances and you’ll enjoy the greatest flexibility, the most convenience and the best value when you subscribe to any of our packages. Not sure about your future plans? Our ticket exchange service—free of fees for subscribers—takes the risk out of ordering in advance. Whether you purchase a fixed package series (such as Dance or Piano) or a Make-Your-Own Series of any 6 performances, you’ll enjoy ALL of these benefits:
 
PRIORITY SEATING: When you subscribe before single tickets go on sale, you’ll be seated in advance of the general public—assuring you of the best available locations.

SAVINGS: You save up to 13% off single ticket prices when you purchase any fixed series. You save 10% per ticket on Make-Your-Own subscriptions.

TICKET EXCHANGE PRIVILEGES FREE OF FEES: As a subscriber, you may exchange your tickets for another event with no fee, up to one day prior to the original concert (48 hours prior for weekend performances). That’s a savings of $10 per exchange!
 
FREE BONUS PERFORMANCES: As a subscriber, you will receive invitations to two annual events: our special Gift Concert (our gift to you for being a supporter) and the Naumburg Competition Winner Concert. These events are not to be missed—in past years, these bonus events have featured extraordinary artists at the dawn of their professional careers, including pianists Lang Lang and Steven Osborne, violinist Vadim Gluzman, and the Eroica Trio. Details will be available later in the season.

DISCOUNTS ON SINGLE TICKETS ALL SEASON LONG: When you order tickets through our exclusive subscriber services line (415-677-0325), you'll receive a 10% discount on single tickets you buy throughout the season.

FREE EMAIL REMINDER SERVICE: We’ll remind you of your performance dates by email a few days prior to each event (email registration required).

FREE NEWSLETTER: Our newsletter, Quarternotes, is rich with behind-the-scenes articles, provocative insights into upcoming events, breaking news and more.

FREE TICKET INSURANCE: If you should ever misplace your tickets, we will re-print duplicates for you at no additional charge and hold them at the Box Office.

From Haydn to Schoenfield:
Rockin’ the Sonata with the Saint Michael Trio

Music at its most fun! Both Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) and Paul Schoenfield (1947- ) are highly formal in their sonata form. Yet Haydn’s classical sonatas embodied the formalism of the 18th-century Enlightenment, while Detroit native Paul Schoenfield’s “Cafe Music” (1987) expresses the whimsy and energy of a 21st-century urban metropolis.Daniel Cher (violin), Russell Hancock (piano, lecturer), and Michel Flexer (cello) demonstrate through illustrated lecture and performance how two utterly different composers use the same tools to express the sentiment of their age.An antidote to the staid world of classical music, the artists earn glowing praise for making their trademark ‘informances’ interesting, accessible, and oftentimes funny.

The Roman Republic (509-27 BCE)
Friday, October 24, 2014   7:30 PM
Saturday, October 25, 2014   10:00 AM
From its legendary origins as a tiny cluster of villages in the Italian countryside, ancient Rome grew into a vast metropolis and the dominant power of the Mediterranean. Leaders of the Roman Republic established a constitutional framework that embodied principles of separation of powers, checks and balances, and the rights and duties of citizenship (for some) — a model that endured for centuries. Ultimately civil strife exacerbated by wide disparities in social and economic wellbeing and the strains of governing a far-flung empire doomed Cicero’s Republican Rome in the first century BCE. From its modeling of democratic values to its golden age of drama and its Greek- and Etruscaninspired art, the Roman Republic was a major turning point in western civilization that inspires us to this day.

Charlemagne: The Father of Western Europe
Friday, February 27, 2015   7:30 PM
Saturday, February 28, 2015   10:00 AM
Even 1200 years after his death in 814, Charlemagne still symbolizes a critical turning point in Western civilization. King of the Franks and Lombards, Emperor of a New Rome, Charles the Great ushered in the Carolingian Renaissance and fathered a dynasty. While political unity proved ephemeral, his economic, administrative, educational, and religious reforms created an enduring cultural identity that encompassed the heartland of today’s Western Europe. For the first time, European political power shifted from the Mediterranean’s Byzantine and Islamic empires to continental (and Catholic) Europe.

The Great War: Culutral Reverberations Across Europe
Friday, May 1, 2015   7:30 PM
Saturday, May 2, 2015   10:00 AM
The First World War collapsed empires, redrew national boundaries, caused cataclysmic change in a generation of Europeans, and revolutionized long-held world views all across Europe. From 1914–18, “The Great War” raged amid a vast crisis of cultural confidence. The war to end all wars was a monumental catastrophe, one of history’s major turning points. Yet among The Great War’s legacies of drastic political, social, and cultural change has been its immense artistic response in music, film, art, and literature.

Wake Up San Francisco

One Day of Extraordinary Transformation



Saturday, March 28, 2015   10:00 AM - 10:30 PM
Nourse Theatre - San Francisco

Join Adyashanti, Alanis Morrisette, Caroline Myss and many more for one extraordinary day of transformation.

How can we stay sane, resourceful, and connected to the limitless depths of our being right in the midst of our busy lives? Is such a thing possible? Is spiritual awakening reserved for people who travel to retreats and monasteries, or is it possible that we can touch spiritual awakening and the depths of the human heart right in the midst of the chaos of our lives? Wake Up San Francisco is a one-day event on Saturday, March28th that immerses participants in the awakening of the human heart. Bringing together spiritual teachers, poets, musicians, yogis, psychological researchers, healers, and lovers of life, Wake Up San Francisco promises to be a day of reflection, new insight, and transformation.

Chanticleer 2014-2015 Season

National Youth Choral Festival



The Gypsy in My Soul
September 19–28, 2014
The Gypsy in my Soul traverses the impulses we all share: longing for community, wanderlust, curiosity, a reverence for the natural world around us, and the gypsy spirit that is somewhere within us all. Songs of sorrow and longing are set by Palestrina, Byrd, and Victoria. The new places a wandering soul may encounter are explored by Gabrieli, Gesualdo and Poulenc. The spirituality of nature and place in many cultures are represented by Villa-Lobos, Alfvén, Ligeti, Bartok, and Kodaly. Gypsies left a considerable impression on the culture of southern Spain, captured in the work of Steven Sametz and Carmen Cavallaro, as well as in folk music from Serbia and Romania. The free-roaming gypsy spirit is idealized in several works from the Great American Songbook, including arrangements by Chanticleer audience favorites Joseph Jennings and Gene Puerling, as well as newly commissioned arrangements and gems from Chanticleer’s latest studio album, Someone New.

A Chanticleer Christmas
December 12–23, 2014
A Chanticleer Christmas is Chanticleer’s beloved offering, a favorite with audiences and critics alike. The warmth and profundity of A Chanticleer Christmas are revealed in a telling of the Christmas story in Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony, traditional carols, Franz Biebl’s “Ave Maria” (Chanticleer’s most requested Christmas selection) and Chanticleer’s traditional medley of spirituals.

National Youth Choral Festival
March 30, 2015
Chanticleer takes its extensive world-wide education program to new heights with its second National Youth Choral Festival™. The festival, which takes place between March 27 and 30 in San Francisco, will bring together over 200 student singers in 10 high-school choirs from across the country. The four-day choral immersion will place the visiting choirs in close, intensive interaction with the members of Chanticleer, who will coach them in all areas critical to the choral art. The climactic event on March 30 will feature Chanticleer and the choirs on stage at Davies Symphony Hall performing a gala concert with special guest artists.

Spanish Gold
June 10–17, 2015
The exuberant creative richness of 16th century Spain left a legacy of magnificent and sensuous music that profoundly influenced the rest of Europe and our own continent. As Spain enjoyed its Golden Century (El Siglo de Oro), art and music of inestimable beauty were created by a wealth of original voices, from the sublime religious mysticism of Tomás Luis de Victoria and Cristóbal de Morales to the nobility of Francisco Guerrero and the earthy folksongs of Mateo Flecha. The music of 16th century Spain and the New World has always been at the heart of Chanticleer’s repertoire, transporting us happily back to our early music roots.
