Volti: Songs With(out) Words: is there there there?

Location: California, USA
Choir type: Professional Choirs

If you had three husbands …
Gertrude Stein’s poetry inspires Seattle composer John Muehleisen in his new piece for VOLTI, San Francisco’s award-winning chamber choir.  Volti concerts on March 2/3/4, 2012, in San Francisco, Mill Valley and Berkeley, explore the expressive potential of the human voice, both through poetry and through the beauty and variety of the pure musical sounds achievable with an ensemble of 20 top-notch professional singers.  The all-contemporary program features recent works by Bay Area composers Robin Estrada and David Conte, and works by Huang Ruo and Reena Esmail, as well as the Muehleisen world premiere.
