2021 Arts Panorama Presented by SVAC

Click for info

Silicon Valley Arts Coalition (SVAC) has released its Virtual Arts Panorama, a curated collection of micro concerts performed in a concert hall setting, at the Hammer Theatre, while complying with all safety standards during production including distancing, group size and adhering to all guidelines and restrictions.

The Arts Panorama is a showcase to keep Silicon Valley’s local performing arts accessible and engage new on-line audiences while creating visibility for nine SVAC member groups. Bringing together the experience to play and share music, SVAC presented Mission Chamber Orchestra, San José Wind Symphony, Nova Vista Symphony, South Bay Philharmonic, and South Bay Guitar Society with video submissions by Lyric Theatre, Mission Valley Chorus, San José Symphonic Choir, and the Silicon Valley Chapter of the American Harp Society.

The San José Symphonic Choir contributed Opferlied – “Song of Offering”, a beautiful and rarely performed work by Beethoven. Cal Arte & SJSC present this performance of his final arrangement, composed in 1824.

All singers and players recorded their parts in isolation and the results were mixed to create this virtual performance featuring mezzo soprano Liliane Cromer, members of the San José Symphonic Choir and the Cal Arte Chamber Orchestra and dedicated to Maestro Leroy Kromm who provided the inspiration for this project.

SJSC programming is our gift to the community – lifting spirits and creating joy!

San José Symphonic Choir is supported, in part, by a Cultural Affairs grant and a Coronavirus Relief Fund grant from the City of San José, and by grants from Silicon Valley Community Foundation, and the Peery Foundation, in addition to several corporate sponsors.
