Twice a year the San Francisco Symphony hosts workshops called “Sing Out Davies”, as part of the symphony's Community of Music Makers program. For one evening, singers from around the Bay Area come together to make music as one. KALW's Alyssa Kapnik stood among them for a recent workshop and brought back their impressions of what it's like to be an ordinary person in such an extraordinary experience.
"Folk Music & Beyond" welcomed the VOENA childrens chorus to the KALW studios this past Saturday (8/17) at 3 pm. This globe-trotting choir has performed at the White House for Presidents Clinton and Bush, at the Vatican for Pope John Paul, and last year in London at the 2012 Olympics. If you missed their performance, watch it on YouTube!
