Attending a Volti concert is like visiting an art gallery, stimulating the mind, the imagination, and the heart. Named for the Italian musical instruction volti subito—meaning "turn the page quickly, look ahead!—this 20-piece professional chamber choir has explored the nexus between poetry and sound since 1979. They're dedicated to the discovery, creation, and performance of new music, and they've commissioned more than 75 new works from emerging and established composers. Under the direction of founder Robert Geary they incorporate unusual vocal techniques not usually heard in traditional choral music.
Volti celebrates their 35th season with a look back at the group’s roots in the music of Benjamin Britten in commemoration of Britten’s 100th birthday, and a look forward with a world premiere by San Francisco composer Mark Winges and pieces by rising young composers Sarah Kirkland Snider and Forrest Pierce.
Come hear the leading edge of 21st century vocal music when Volti plays the Freight.
