We’ve had to postpone the planned commission from New York-based composer Jace Clayton, so we’ll see you next in April when we premiere Michael Gilbertson’s Denial with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra.  


APRIL 22, 23 and 24, 2022


Volti joins San Francisco Chamber Orchestra and Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir 

in the premiere of an oratorio by Michael Gilbertson

Denial, set to both ancient and contemporary texts, is a powerful meditation on climate change and our current political deadlock. 

Opening the program is Vaughan-Williams rapturous and beautiful The Lark Ascending, featuring SFCO concertmaster Robin Sharp. 

Volti will sing contemporary pieces by Diana Woolner and Frank Ticheli

Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony completes the program.
