Setting sail

Inspired by the Bay Area’s maritime traditions and the arrival of the America’s Cup races, this October Clerestory presents “SeaSongs.” Traditional chanteys, serenely flowing Renaissance polyphony, and modern melodies will transport listeners over bays, islands, waves, and currents. The concert features Clerestory’s first ever commissioned work, “These Oceans Vast,” a song cycle on poems of Hermann Melville by the esteemed Seattle composer Eric Banks. Set sail with us this October!
