At Home with Hope Briggs: How Opera Found Me

Saturday, January 30 | 2 p.m. PT

Spend an hour with soprano Hope Briggs to learn how an aspiring Contemporary Christian artist landed on the Grand Opera stage. How does she embody the emotional range of all the styles she enjoys? And what’s next for this versatile vocalist?

SINGING SATURDAYS - An Online Choral Workshop Series

Four Saturdays: February 6 - 27, 2021

All sessions 11 a.m. Pacific Time

February in France featuring Fauré Requiem

SF Symphony Chorus Director Ragnar Bohlin will join us from his home in Sweden for a four-session series to hone your choral singing skills. We'll gather for healthy vocal warm-ups and then explore some of your favorites from the choral repertoire.

Each month will bring a new series focusing on specific repertoire, and each session is an exploration of techniques that will make selected passages from these great choral works beautiful and musical. Although they are not choral rehearsals as such, they will include interludes of singing together through parts and movements of the pieces being studied.

At Home with Lisa Mezzacappa: A Jazz Listening Session

Saturday, February 20 | 2 p.m. PT

Spend an hour in a listening session to explore the great rhythm sections in jazz history. Learn how bassists, pianists, guitarists and drummers work together to propel the music forward, and how innovative rhythm section players have helped shape the sound of this iconic music.

At Home with Jake Heggie: Composing for Our Times

Saturday, February 20 | 2 p.m. PT

Spend an hour with one of the premier opera and vocal composers of our era. Learn how he’s adapted to the pandemic and what the future holds for him and for the art form in the future. Moderated by long-time friend and self-proclaimed music wannabe David Landis.
