YWCP’s second annual festival features invited choirs from the Bay Area and Canada to perform together under the inspiring leadership of Boston-based guest conductor, Anthony Trecek-King. Over 200 young women will learn and perform together through this community outreach program.
Folk-inspired repertoire will transport concertgoers to rural villages and back to our exciting concert venue. Music by known composers such Kodály, Bartok, and Vaughan-Williams as well as other contemporary settings of folk tunes, will be heard. The finale of YWCP’s year of remarkable musical growth, this Spring Showcase Concert features our four performing ensembles: Prelude Chorus, Allegro Chorus, Allegro Ensemble and the Young Women’s Chorus.
We couldn’t ask for better ambassadors to Europe than our Young Women’s Chorus who embark this June on a concert tour to Slovenia, Austria and Hungary. Their tour send-off concert features the apt American hymn “How Can I Keep from Singing?” and sacred and secular music from all three European countries, with works by Haydn, Schubert, Kodaly, Jez and Gyöngyösi. In addition, expect lots of Americana, including folk music, jazz and traditional spirituals.
The Young Women’s Chorus joins forces with San Francisco Conservatory Chorus and the Lund University Men’s Chorus to perform one of the greatest masterworks of the twentieth century with world-renowned conductor, Esa-Pekka Salonen and his Philharmonia Orchestra of London.
Celebrate with YWCP, composers and guest artists on the release of our debut album, Rejoice!
