Life on the San Francisco Peninsula: Peninsula Cantare's Winter Concert

One of the joys of living here is the multi-cultural activities that surround us. Mark your calendars for a night of beautiful music, in an easy-to-get-to location.  My husband, Gene, sings with Peninsula Cantare, and is especially enjoying the Three Nocturnes, which he finds to be marvelous. Hope to see you there!

Peninsula Cantare's Music Director, Janice Gunderson, offers a shining array of music about night and stars.  As the sun descends through Hugo Alfvén's Evening, Brahms' O Schöne Nacht and Abendlied, you will be immersed in a "heaven full of stars" in the Three Nocturnes by Dan Forest.  Written in 2008, this lush and evocative piece is scored for percussion ensemble.  Music for the Holiday season sparkles with John Rutter's Star Carol, William Dawson's Behold the Star, Poulenc's Videntes Stellam and other starry gems by Mendelssohn, Tallis Dello Joio and local composer Brian Homes.

Sounds like a lovely event, especially under the stars. We usually have to travel a couple hours for these kind of events.

Hi Debra -- yes, it's fun to see him enjoying himself so much--he's been singing since college days

Lynn, we are fortunate to have so many events of all kinds to enjoy. I leave the singing to Gene!

Al & Peggy, Lee & Carol - so much to do, so little time.

Happy holidays to all of you!
