Enjoy an evening of “jazz & beyond” with Ecco and Ancora, the two high school groups of the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir. The internationally acclaimed Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir has been offering children from throughout San Francisco’s East Bay an outstanding program of choral training and performance. Founded in 1982 by Suzie Rahl, the Choir has established itself as a leading force in international choral activities and contemporary music under the leadership of Artistic Director Robert Geary. International tours every summer and a keen desire to meet, collaborate, and compete with choruses and singers of other cultures have led to high marks at prestigious festivals across the world, and to the creation of the Golden Gate International Choral Festival. The Choir regularly collaborates with major Bay Area arts organizations such as the Oakland East Bay Symphony, Cal Performances, the Mark Morris Dance Company, and the Berkeley West Edge Opera. Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir is featured in the upcoming film “Songs of Defiance” a documentary about the Laulupidu song festival in Estonia and is one of the very few choirs outside of Estonia invited to participate.

Ecco, conducted by Clifton Massey, is the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir’s mixed voices high school group. Young men and women from all over the East Bay perform a varied repertoire. The group has high standards of artistic excellence and sensitivity, performs 6-8 concerts a year, has a weekend retreat and a summer camp. In June they will tour to Seattle WA to collaborate with the Columbia Vocal Ensemble.
