... at least not yet!
Bay Choral Guild’s Discovery and Rediscovery concerts are this coming weekend in Campbell, San Francisco, and Palo Alto. We will be performing a wonderful program of works by 18 women composers from the 12th to the 21st century, including 14 living composers—six from around the world and eight Americans. We’re used to performing pieces in multiple languages, but have really challenged ourselves—the texts are in Latin, German, Italian, Icelandic, and Latvian as well as in English. Don’t worry, we’re providing translations!
Many members of our audience are familiar with the programming skills of our Artistic Director, Sanford Dole, and know that they will find our concerts beautiful and satisfying even when the works are unfamiliar. Others are eager to attend a classical music concert to hear a masterwork that they know and love, and less likely to be attracted to a concert consisting of works they’ve never heard by composers they don’t know. In this case, we are very confident that you will be very happy you attended this concert and that you will discover, as we have in preparing it, that the music is stunningly beautiful—melodic, diverse in style, mood, and subject, and often rhythmically upbeat, humorous, and surprising.
Please don’t miss a chance to hear this exceptional repertoire! We hope to see you at one of our concerts this weekend.
—Sandra Wilson, President
