“To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible, and inconceivable” — Aaron Copland

Sacred & Profane is a chamber chorus committed to the accomplished presentation of the rich and varied art of a cappella choral music. Our repertoire encompasses a diverse blend of styles and periods, including medieval through contemporary, sacred and secular, traditional, ethnic, and folk styles.

Celebrate Sacred & Profane’s fortieth year of bringing exquisite concerts to the Bay Area and the Mendocino coast with a program of masterpieces for a cappella choir! This concert will feature the Estonian composer Veljo Tormis’ Curse Upon Iron, a powerful work about the cultivation of iron as a vehicle for both ancient and modern warfare, as well as Arvo Part’s antiphon for peace, Da pacem Domine.”   For the first time in many years, we will sing our namesake work — Benjamin Britten’s Sacred and Profane: Eight Medieval Lyrics, the last piece that Britten composed for professional a cappella choir. Finally, we are delighted to conclude our season with the world premiere of a new work commissioned from the compelling Swedish composer Karin Rehnqvist.


Tickets are $20 advance, $5 more day of performance for the concert;
youth 7-17 admitted free with adult.
