December 10, 2016 at Seventh Avenue Church in San Francisco.
San Francisco Renaissance Voices (Katherine McKee, music director) annual holiday gift to our audiences, this traditional Lessons & Carols is modeled after the event first performed at King’s College Cambridge (England) in 1918 and performed every year there, and around the world, since. We again honor a tradition of the festival and will debut a commissioned carol by Bay Area composer Angela Kraft Cross, using text by Bay Area poet Elisabeth Eliassen. This year we invite children of all ages to join us beforehand to create Christmas cookies that will be served at the reception after the concert and, as always, there will be lots of opportunities for you to sing Christmas carols along with us as part of the evening. This is a free event, our Christmas gift to you – no tickets or reservations are required – just come and enjoy the evening!
