San Francisco Girls Chorus
Stunning vocal range, flexibility, drama, and power are among the hallmarks of the San Francisco Girls Chorus' Premier Ensemble, recognized as one of the world’s finest youth vocal ensembles.
Under the direction of Artistic Director, Valérie Sainte-Agathe, the Premier Ensemble has achieved an incomparable sound that underscores the unique clarity and force of impeccably trained treble voices fused with expressiveness and drama. As a result, the Chorus vibrantly performs 1,000 years of choral masterworks from plainchant to the most challenging and nuanced contemporary works created expressly for them. A leading voice on the Bay Area and national music scenes, the Chorus has produced award-winning concerts, recordings and tours; empowered young women in music and other fields, enhanced and expanded the field of music for treble voices and set the international standard for the highest level of performance and education.
Frequent collaborator, San Francisco Symphony Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas says, “The San Francisco Girls Chorus is a treasure. Their training, musicality, and vibrant spirit are evident whenever they perform. I have enjoyed our long association and look forward to many years of collaboration.”
