San Francisco Choral Artists
Mission: San Francisco Choral Artists, a chamber choir of the highest quality, fosters new American choral music and presents imaginative and emotionally engaging programming of diverse repertoire, with emphasis on works by living composers.
About: SFCA has premiered over 250 works and won the Chorus America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming in 2012 and again in 2015, affirming its reputation for eclectic programming and stunning performances.
SFCA’s artistic vision is to explore the implications of its mission with programs that offer stimulating and moving choral music—new and old works that entice, reward, inspire, and intellectually challenge listeners and performers.
Each year, SFCA offers 3 subscription concerts sets (occasionally 4 sets), each consisting of 3-4 live performances. Each performance includes musical lectures, and at least one subscription set offers “meet the composer” panels where composers discuss their creative processes. To enrich the diversity of its programs, most seasons include works in at least 8 languages.
