Mozart's Requiem | San Francisco Choral Society

Mozart | Requiem

August 14 and 15, 8 pm | Saint Ignatius Church

In our next concerts hear us sing Mozart’s glorious Requiem, a piece that was revered long before the (somewhat) fictionalized account of its composition in by playwright Peter Shaffer in Amadeus. The powerful, moving work has taken its place among the great choral masterworks, chosen for the funerals of Haydn, Chopin, and Beethoven.

A message from Bob

If you are looking for a musical home with an organization that is generated by the enormous creativity of the greater San Francisco community, you should consider auditioning. The Choral Society is a vibrant and innovative musical organization. In addition to a primary focus on historical literature for chorus and orchestra, the Choral Society has a vigorous program of commissioning new works and in recent years has done some staged pieces.

New Oratorio: Creation Diary

In November 2014 SF Choral premiered the first part of Stacy Garrop’s new oratorio for SF Choral and the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir. Part II will premiere in April, with the entire new work receiving its first full performance in November, 2015. You can read about her approach to the creative process (and other aspects of her life and work as composer) on her blog. We share some excerpts from her posts as the SF Choral commission has progressed.
