We went on Saturday to the Christmas concert given by the Grammy award winning San Francisco Boys Chorus. It was an auditory delight. The SFBC doesn’t pretend to any PC Christmas white out, but instead, inundates you with truly beautiful Christmas and Christmas music. This year’s program included Oh Holy Night, I Saw Three Ship, and Joy to the World. In addition, the boys sang Ava Maria, led by a soprano and an alto doing a duet so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes and ran chills up and down my spine. If you like choral music, the SFBC is one of the best groups performing today.
And if you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, you can hear a replay of their concert from last year. As the SFBC website says:
KQED-TV will broadcast the San Francisco Boys Chorus in concert on Sunday, December 23rd at 1:30pm and again Monday 24 7:30pm. In the special 30-minute program recorded in 2006, the Chorus will perform selections from Marc Antoine Charpentier’s Te Deum and other holiday favorites, under the direction of Maestro Ian Robertson. KQED Life (Comcast channel 189) will air Monday December 24th at 1:30pm.
Having attended last year’s concert, I can assure you that you will be delighted with what you hear.
