Event Details

Get out of your comfort zone and into the holiday spirit. (You probably won’t ever read that sentence again.) You’re invited to the International Orange Chorale of San Francisco’s winter concert.

Free, but an RSVP is required. Donations are welcome.

It consists of nine sacred songs, including contemporary world premieres and lush Norwegian harmonies. Perks include free admission, music they guarantee you’ve never heard before, a chance to get into the holiday spirit, the ability to prove to your date and/or friends that you are cultured, baritone soloist Krassen Karagiozov’s voice, and free food and wine after the show.

One highlight of their concert will be the world premiere of Fredrik Sixten’s “Missa Brevis,” a disruptive (there, they said it) take on a traditional Catholic mass. Their program includes two pieces they say are by Edvard Grieg, but really sound like Norwegian-romantic barbershop.

You’ll have to come to their concert to hear about the rest of the program. So they won’t say anything about the obscure but breathtaking work from Georg Grün, nor will they mention the trilingual tour de force “De Profundis” by newly minted composer-in-residence Nicholas Weininger.

Space is limited, but also strangely infinite when you think about it.
