Upcoming Performances

The Creation
Saturday 8:00 pm May 5, 2018
Sunday 2:30 pm May 6, 2018

Haydn’s great oratorio The Creation is a supreme masterpiece of optimism, celebrating universal harmony and rejoicing in a flawless world order with no conflicts or adversity of any kind. Recounting the six days of Creation, it opens with a "Representation of Chaos" and ends with Adam and Eve’s declaration of love for one another. One of the cornerstones of the choral repertoire, it is a work none of us wants to be without for too long.

This concert is part of Subscription Series A, B, C, & D

Conductor: John Nelson
Soloist(s): Symphony Silicon Valley Chorale
