Bay Choral Guild

announces its

2015-2016 Season

Once again we are excited to present a season of masterworks and lesser-known gems. This year we will be presenting two pillars of the choral repertoire followed by a “discovery” program of unaccompanied works from the Netherlands and Belgium. We are also inaugurating a collaboration with Peninsula-based New Millennium Chamber Orchestra.

Carmina Burana

November 20, 21, 22, 2015

We will perform Carl Orff’s enchanting Carmina Burana—a setting of 24 medieval secular poems about spring, tavern life, and love—in the composer’s own “chamber” version featuring two pianos and four percussionists. Ragazzi Boys Chorus, one of the Bay Area’s premiere boys‘ choruses, will join us for Carmina and also perform on their own. Rounding out the program is Gloria, by the late Peter Hallock, longtime organist and choirmaster at Seattle’s St. Mark’s Episcopal Church.


March 11, 12, 13, 2016

Mozart‘s final masterpiece, in collaboration with Peninsula-based New Millennium Chamber Orchestra, directed by James Richard Frieman. The program will also include BCG Artistic Director Sanford Dole’s setting of Gerard Manley Hopkins’ God’s Grandeur for alto and orchestra.

Dutch Masters, New and Old

June 10, 11, 12, 2016

Our season concludes with a set of a cappella compositions from the Netherlands and Belgium, featuring the brilliant counterpoint of Renaissance masters Jan Sweelinck and Josquin des Prez. The concert will also include 20th-century works by Henk Badings and Jurriaan Andriessen and the U.S. premieres of more recent scores from the region.
