San Francisco Bach Choir is celebrating it’s anniversary with a FREE choral festival. There will be opening and closing sessions, with three workshops sessions in between. Even lunch is included. Almost too good to be true! Depending on your tastes or professional development needs, you can sing plainchant with Marsha Genensky, re-leaven your short’ning bread with Linda Tillery, belt out Broadway with Trente Morant, or sing some Bach with SFBC's superb director Magen Solomon—to name a few choices.

Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival
San Francisco (Regional SemiFinal), March 12
San Rafael (National Finals @ Marin Civic Center), May 17
"For over 30 years the Harmony Sweepstakes has been delighting audiences and the Festival continues to grow in popularity. The show was the inspiration for the hit prime time NBC show The Sing-Off which aired for five seasons bringing even more interest to the art of a cappella singing. Winners of the seven regional competitions are flown to the Bay Area to compete in the National Finals with the winners being crowned National Champions. From vocal jazz to doo wop, barbershop to pop and all styles in between you will be amazed at the versatility of the human voice on display in this most exhilarating evening of vocal harmony singing."
