This week’s episode of In Unison is the first in a mini-series of sorts, all about the International Orange Chorale of San Francisco’s return to live performance with our “Freshly Squeezed” program. Originally slated for our Spring 2020 concert series, this program exclusively features the premieres of new works for our Bay Area audience, and over the next several weeks we’ll be chatting with all of the composers featured on the program. Today’s episode will also provide an update on how IOCSF has navigated through the past nearly 20 months of absence from rehearsals: what we’ve been up to when we couldn’t sing in person, and how we’re managing through what will hopefully be the final vestiges of the pandemic to bring you our first live performances in nearly two years. http://www.inunisonpodcast.com/episodes/s04e08#transcript (Episode transcript) Edited by https://www.inunisonpodcast.com/fausto (Fausto Daos) Music excerpts “https://music.apple.com/us/album/chrysopylae-live/1250551821?i=1250552236 (Chrysopylae),” by Dominick DiOrio, performed by the International Orange Chorale of San Francisco on the album https://music.apple.com/us/album/the-unknown-region-live/1250551821 (The Unknown Region) “https://music.apple.com/us/album/the-unknown-region-live/1250551821?i=1250552247 (The Unknown Region),” by Elizabeth Kimble, performed by the International Orange Chorale of San Francisco on the album https://music.apple.com/us/album/the-unknown-region-live/1250551821 (The Unknown Region) Episode references http://iocsf.org (International Orange Chorale of San Francisco) website https://www.iocsf.org/events (IOCSF concert calendar) https://www.facebook.com/iocsf (IOCSF) on Facebook https://www.instagram.com/iocsf/ (IOCSF) on Instagram http://www.inunisonpodcast.com/donate (Donate) to In Unison!
