SeaSongs – October 2012

Click to view program PDF

Inspired by the Bay Area’s maritime traditions and the arrival of San Francisco Opera’s Moby Dick and the America’s Cup races, this fall 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 Herman Melville by the esteemed Seattle composer Eric Banks. Set sail with us this October!
