Jubilate to Perform Bach’s Magnificat and Christmas Oratorio with San Francisco Choral Society

2009 November 17

The San Francisco Choral Society

On December 5th and 6th, the Jubilate Orchestra will join with The San Francisco Choral Society for performances of Parts 4-6 of J.S. Bach’s magnificent Christmas Oratorio. The concerts complete the cycle begun a year ago when the first half of the oratorio and continue a long relationship between the two ensembles. Jubilate performed Bach’s Magnificat with the Choral Society in 2004.

Like Magnificat, the San Francisco Choral Society was established in 1989 and since then has shared their joy and enthusiasm for choral music with more than 60,000 concertgoers. The Choral Society’s year-round program offers singers the opportunity to perform major choral works with professional orchestras and soloists in front of live audiences. They also provide low-cost music instruction to our singers in the form of classes and workshop and a student internship program.

Jubilate has worked with the Choral Society’s director Robert Geary in numerous projects over the past two decades. In addition to concerts with the Choral Society, Geary conducts the Piedmont East Bay Childrens Choirs and Volti – both choirs that regularly collaborate with Jubilate.
