Of all the San Francisco Symphony's famed collaborators, music director Michael Tilson Thomas has a soft spot for the San Francisco Girls Chorus, calling the vocal ensemble a "treasure." And, indeed, the group's glittering array of voices, at some moments silvery and pristine, at others golden and deeply burnished, suggests his metaphor is right on the money. So take a Scrooge McDuck-esque plunge into this ensemble's sonic riches during their season-opening concert, Surprising Freedoms: Music from Behind Convent Walls. New York-based early music ensemble TENET joins the SFGC for this specially curated program of 17th century music written by and for women in Italian monasteries. Be there for a revealing peak into cloistered life during the baroque era.
