KALW public radio's Crosscurrents visits Sing Out, Davies!

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.

Featuring Sing Out, Davies! participants Susie Orb, David Silverman and Linda Holbrook.
