OUR FALL WILL BE BUSY. In November we will sing Itaipú by contemporary composer Philip Glass and Schicksalslied (Song of Fate) by Johannes Brahms.
In December we return to perform our Second Annual Sing-Along Messiah, in which Thomas Davies conducts both the SLO Master Chorale singers and audience during choral sections of Handel’s famous oratorio. Tune up your singing voice for this joyful event! Tickets for Sing-Along Messiah will be offered at reduced prices thanks to a generous grant from the Foundation for the Performing Arts Center.
In May, 2017 the SLO Master Chorale, in collaboration with Ballet Theatre San Luis Obispo, will perform Carl Orff’s powerful Carmina Burana. Two performances are scheduled. Watch for the dates and times!
Enrollment for San Luis Obispo Master Chorale is through Cuesta College Community Programs.
Jill Anderson to be honored
San Luis Obispo Master Chorale member Jill Anderson will be recognized at the second annual benefit to support the Clifton Swanson PAC Community Access Fund which provides grants to local arts organizations to encourage them to use the San Luis Obispo Performing Arts Center. The event will be held at 11:30am on Sunday, March 12, in the main lobby of the Performing Arts Center on the Cal Poly campus.
Ms Anderson has been a shining light of our San Luis Obispo musical community for more than 30 years. She is a frequent chorister and soloist to the SLO Master Chorale, most recently in the 2016 performance of Handel’s Messiah. Jill was co-founder of the Pacific Repertory Opera in San Luis Obispo, of which she was Artistic Director for 23 years before stepping down in 2008. Pacific Repertory officially changed its name to Opera SLO in 2010. Jill is cofounder and artistic director of Canzona Women’s Ensemble, established in 2009.
