Dear readers,

Things are starting to feel a bit more “normal” after two years of lockdowns, at least as far as attending live events goes, and we couldn’t be happier. I hope you have been able to enjoy some live performances, and if not, there is a very full calendar of events for April and beyond. We invite you to browse upcoming events as well as our recent articles which span a wide range of topics, from an intimate conversation with soprano Othalie Graham to an in-depth look at the difficulty of modern digital storage.

Longing for relaxed summer evenings and outdoor performances? Our annual summer festival guide is coming later this month, and if you subscribe to our newsletter, it will arrive conveniently in your inbox when it is published. Sign up if you haven’t already.

If you enjoy being part of our community, please consider making a tax-deductible donation. SFCV is an independent nonprofit organization, and we depend on your generosity to keep our talented team reporting on the music, artists, and organizations you love. Because no other media outlet focuses on classical music and jazz the way we do, SFCV is essential for artists and organizations seeking to connect to audiences and, on the flip side, for readers like you who are looking for information and meaningful content. Donations of any size are received with heartfelt gratitude.

Wishing you a great spring and summer,
Claudia Campazzo
Executive Director
SF Classical Voice
