About the Event

Join the SFCO and two acclaimed choirs, San Francisco’s stellar Volti and the amazing young singers of the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir for the world premiere of Michael Gilbertson’s final commission as our BMI Composer-in-Residence.  Denial, set  to both ancient and contemporary texts, is a powerful meditation on  climate change and our current political deadlock.  Opening our program  is Vaughan-Williams rapturous and beautiful The Lark Ascending, featuring our illustrious concertmaster Robin Sharp.  And closing the program, and our season, is Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, one of his most popular and exciting works.
