Unique in the landscape of virtual choir projects, The Light of Hope Returning is a combined effort of WomenSing of the Bay Area, California (Director, Ofer dal Lal) and Elektra Women’s Choir, of Vancouver, Canada (Director, Morna Edmundson).

This international collaboration features the music of Shawn Kirchner (Los Angeles Master Chorale Composer-in-Residence) and the hand-drawn animation of Kevork Mourad, bringing together 70 women’s voices in homage to the holiday season.

The Light of Hope Returning poignantly reflects the current state of global uncertainty, while at the same time ultimately trusting in the cycle of the seasons and the hope embodied by the eventual return of light. The online performance will also feature Canadian soloist Allison Girvan and instrumentalists from the San Francisco Opera Orchestra.

Don’t miss this truly monumental musical and artistic collaboration that promises an uplifting and meaningful celebration for our 2020 holiday season.

This free and festive mid-winter online experience will be broadcast at 6pm PST / 9pm EST on December 21, 2020. Subscribe to The Light of Hope Returning newsletter to receive news and updates about the show!
