MOVING ON!

Volti continues our 43rd season, after a bit of a break after the Angel Island Oratorio performances with Del Sol Quartet.  We’ll return to in-person performance with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra and the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir, under the direction of Maestro Ben Simon, in the premiere of Denial, an oratorio on climate change by San Francisco composer Michael Gilbertson. Volti will also sing works on climate-related themes by Diana Woolner and Frank Ticheli. We’ll hope to see you April 22 at Herbst Theatre in San Francisco, April 23 at First United Methodist in Palo Alto, or April 24 at First Congregational in Berkeley.

 Our Season Grand Finale in June will present a premiere of a commission by our own Eric Tuan,  along with a program of leading-edge vocal music from diverse voices including Aftab Darvishi, Jens Ibsen, Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate, and Tania León. June 2022 – dates and venues TBA.

Stay with us!  Things are interesting, and both music and Volti are unstoppable.
