Hi there,

Ching, ching, chingling ~ Yup, holiday season's nearing! So, what are we waiting for? Let's get together for a heart-warming candlelight concert filled with music of pre-baroque to Bach's time. Plus, we will do some caroling as well (not sure if it's singalong, but will follow the program). Please read below. Martin filled in all concert details since he's a guru @ SF Bach Choir concert series. Thanks Martin!:)

PROGRAM:
Kindle the spirit of the season in a heartwarming tour of music from the Renaissance to the high baroque with an exciting mix of works by Mouton, Gallus, Praetorius, Sch?tz, Scheidt, Buxtehude,Telemann and J.S. Bach. Our annual celebration?complete with carols, candles, chant and multiple choirs singing in the round?has become a not-to-be-missed San Francisco holiday tradition, so order early while tickets are still available!

WHEN: Saturday, December 4, 8PM
WHERE: Calvary Presbyterian Church (Fillmore & Jackson) SF.
TIX INFO: "Section B" tickets: $24, $30 at the door (section A is slightly more- in my experience not worth it). Maybe we can get a discount as a group (TBA)
I have been going for years to these concerts and they are really a highlight for me. Not your usual "holiday concert" performance, this group sings a rare collection of Bach and pre-Bach choral pieces. At one point they shut off the lights, burn candles and surround the audience. The church venue is fitting.

Hope many of you can join me for this special holiday concert. Guarantee it will warm your heart filled with holiday spirit just what it says!:)
