The San Francisco Girls Chorus always does its level best to bring something different to its ever-growing fan base. The 2009–10 season includes performances with the jazz ensemble Hot Club of San Francisco, harpist Karen Gottlieb, the Cypress String Quartet, the world premiere of a multimedia piece with poetry by Chen Yi, appearances with the S.F. Opera, a new double CD recording, and a tour of Southern California.
The performance of Transcendent Voices, based on works by Holst, Taverner and Hildegard will be given at the Calvary Presbyterian Church in Pacific Heights on Friday, Oct. 23 at 8 p.m. There will be another performance on the following Sunday, Oct. 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the First Congregational Church in Berkeley. Harpist Karen Gottlieb will be the featured soloist, and various Middle Eastern players will also perform. Artistic director Susan McMane will conduct all shows.
It’s been an auspicious time for the Girls Chorus, with its performance at the inauguration of President Obama and a debut at New York’s Lincoln Center.
