In its 35th anniversary year, the San Francisco Girls Chorus (Girls Chorus) is presenting a rarely staged 20th century master work by Benjamin Britten, Noye’s Fludde, which is based on the biblical story of Noah and his ark. In this project, the Girls Chorus will partner with Richard Wright and some 15 other artists from Creativity Explored—an arts organization that challenges perceptions of the capabilities of persons with disabilities. Many of Creativity Explored’s artists (among them, Richard Wright) highlight animals in their artworks. Wright’s work has been professionally exhibited at The Luggage Store Gallery. Through this collaboration, participants from the Girls Chorus and Creativity Explored will visit one another to learn about one another’s processes, inspire the choral performance, and incorporate into it a range of imaginative animal artworks.
