Pacific Collegium Premieres This Weekend

Go check out the Pacific Collegium, directed by my good friend Chris Kula! I’m going to try to make one of these, probably the Saturday nite one…

The Pacific Collegium:
From Advent to Epiphany
  • Heinrich Sch��Ωtz, selections from the Geistliche Chormusik
  • Benjamin Britten, A Boy was Born

Friday, January 14th 8 pm St. Paul��Ωs Episcopal Church
114 Montecito Ave., Oakland
Saturday, January 15th 8 pm Trinity Episcopal Church
1668 Bush St., San Francisco

The music of the greater Christmas season from Advent through Epiphany is celebrated in the elegant and expressive counterpoint of the brilliant German baroque church musician Heinrich Sch��Ωtz. Working three centuries later, Benjamin Britten caught the attention of the world with the extended Christmas fantasia, A Boy was Born, scored for 8-part a cappella choir with descant boy choir, here sung by the School Choristers of the Pacific Boychoir Academy of Oakland.

General admission $18 students and seniors $12
