Welcome Composer-in-Residence Michael Kaulkin!
Oakland composer Michael Kaulkin is this year's SFCA Composer-in-Residence -- he'll contribute a new composition for each of our three subscription series programs this year, beginning this month at A Rebel’s Christmas: Martin Luther’s Musical Reformation. He characterizes his new piece, "The Noble Art of Music," as a fanfare for a cappella choir, and sets a well-known quote from Martin Luther:
"After the word of God, the noble a...rt of music is the greatest treasure in the world."
You can enjoy much of Kaulkin's music on his website, michaelkaulkin.com -- here's his short a cappella work "Roll the tide"
At our upcoming concert: A Rebel's Christmas, we'll explore the transformation of church music as wrought by Bach, Brahms, Distler, Handel, Mendelssohn, Praetorius, Schein, Walther.

"Once again, Magen Solomon’s group wins the derby for best holiday musical programming. This concert explores the changes wrought in liturgical music by the Reformation, which is 500 years old this year."
Thank you to San Francisco Classical Voice for taking notice! We're getting close... just over a week away from the first performance of "A Rebel's Christmas: Martin Luther's Musical Reformation."
Join us in Palo Alto, Oakland, or San Francisco!...
