Fog City Singers - I Have Dreamed (arr. Wright)

At our concert last week, we dedicated our performance of "I Have Dreamed" to our good friend Kristen Oei—a dancer in the Tony Award-winning production of The King and I the Musical that recently closed on Broadway—along with her wonderful cast and crew. Their work has been a beacon of inspiration for us as we continue to find new opportunities and meaning in our own performance of this song. Congratulations on a great run, Kristen, and to the rest of our audience: we hope you enjoy this little concert snippet!

FCS - Summer Concert Standing Ovation

Wow. We had the privilege of singing for nearly 200 people at our Fog City Singers - Summer Concert! last night. Never in our wildest dreams did we expect an audience of that size and energy. We ran out of chairs, programs, and tickets; we started late due to the seemingly ceaseless influx of attendees before showtime; we even had to relegate some people to the floor in the front— —and yet, none of that mattered. For 90 minutes, we collectively celebrated the power of a few songs to bring a small army of patrons and performers a little closer together. It was without question the most spectacular evening of our young chorus's life thus far. To everyone who attended and everyone who offered their well-wishes from afar, THANK YOU. You made the evening truly magical, whether or not you were there in the hall with us. We can't wait for our next opportunity to sing for you. To interested singers, we'll be opening auditions again soon, so we'd love to have you at our next rehearsal! We'll post the dates and details for our Fall Set shortly. In the meantime, we're taking the next two weeks off for some much-needed R&R. Oh, and to Baiano Pizzeria - Hayes Valley, thanks so much for hosting and feeding us at our afterglow. We couldn't have asked for a better venue at which to scream tags until midnight. Here's a little snippet from the end of our concert. Until next time!
