Among the highlights for 2012-13 is a holiday concert, Gloria! ~ A Baroque Christmas with ABS, on December 15 at St. Stephen’s Church, Belvedere. Joining ABS will be the Grammy Award-winning San Francisco Girls Chorus and the acclaimed American Bach Choir. Also, for 2012, we expand our offerings of Handel’s Messiah to three nights in Grace Cathedral, December 20, 21, & 22, so you’ll have more opportunities to purchase the best seats. As a valued subscriber, you have the opportunity to purchase premium seats, within the first five rows in Grace Cathedral, before they are available to the public.


Our subscription season opens in January with Bach’s St. John Passion beginning at 7:30pm in Belvedere and Berkeley, at 4pm in San Francisco, and at 7pm in Davis. We continue in March with Bach, Handel, & Vivaldi – a program featuring Handel’s Dixit Dominus, Bach’s Concerto for Oboe d’amore, and Vivaldi’s Beatus Vir and the Concerto for Viola d’amore. This year’s concerts conclude in May with a program of stunning Bach arias along with two of Handel’s most brilliant cantatas, Apollo & Dafne and Silete venti. For the March and May programs, Belvedere and Berkeley performances will begin at 8pm, San Francisco performances at 4pm, and Davis performances at 7pm.  Please note the new start times in San Francisco and Davis. …”
