Bay Choral Guild

announces its

2014-2015 Season

Ein Deutsches Requiem

November 21, 22, 23, 2014

Our November concert, Ein deutsches Requiem, showcases Johannes Brahms’ choral masterpiece, one of the great musical pillars of the 19th Century. In light of the size of our venues and our group’s numbers, we’ve chosen to perform a pianofour-hands arrangement of this great masterwork. This unusual version should allow our audiences a greater immediacy and intimacy with the lush harmonies and the profound sentiment inherent in Brahms’ heartfelt, powerful music.

SoloistsNov2014

Our solosts, Jennifer Ashworth, soprano, and Ben Kazez, baritone, are both popular, highly respected members of the Bay Area music community.

Music for Holy Week

March 13, 14, 15, 2015

As a prelude to the Easter season, BCG’s March program presents a variety of unaccompanied works from various eras composed for the Christian Church’s most sacred liturgies. Written to be sung on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter, our set of a cappella anthems includes pieces by Anton Bruckner, John Tavener and Thomas Weelkes.

The Natural World

June 5, 6, 7, 2015

Our June program will feature pieces about about roses, summer nights on the water, the blessings of rain, birds and other aspects of nature, including insects!

We’ll sing Les Chansons des Roses by Morten Lauridsen, The Bluebird by Charles Stanford, To be sung of a summer night on the water by Frederk Delius, Water: Making Everything by Sanford Dole, and, as a finale, Leonard Bernstein’s Make our Garden Grow from Candide. Our all-secular program combines a cappella selectionswith songs accompanied by piano in a lovely prelude to summer.
