The San Francisco Girls Chorus (SFGC) closes its season on May 30, 2024, when the Chorus School will showcase singers from Levels I through IV at its annual Chorus School Spring Concert at the Oakland Scottish Rite Center, coming together to celebrate their accomplishments from the year individually and as a school. A culmination of their studies, students will perform the repertoire they have worked on this season. On the program are works by Gabriel Fauré, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Earlene Rentz, Alberto Favero, Felix Mendelssohn, and more. The chorus school led by Level III Director Terry Alvord closes the concert with the world premiere of SFGC Composer-in-Residence Sahba Aminikia’s newest work Woman, Life, Freedom.

Since 1978, SFGC has provided girls and young women the unique opportunity not only to perform at the highest artistic caliber, but also to develop self-confidence, leadership skills, and an awareness of the role of the arts in civic engagement. Under the direction of Valérie Sainte-Agathe, SFGC has achieved an incomparable sound that underscores the unique clarity and force of impeccably trained treble voices fused with expressiveness and drama. As a result, the SFGC vibrantly performs 1,000 years of choral masterworks from plainchant to the most challenging and nuanced contemporary works, many created expressly for them, in programs that are as intelligently designed as they are enjoyable and revelatory to experience.
