GAUDE is a professional, a cappella chamber ensemble based in San Francisco, California. Directed by Jace Wittig (former Interim Director of the Grammy Award-winning ensemble, Chanticleer), Gaude presents a cappella masterpieces from the Renaissance and beyond in intimate settings with modern sensibility. Gaude seeks to engage the concert-going public, new listeners, and student musicians alike through unique programming and joyfully artistic performances. 

Gaude is a newly founded, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.

"Gaude” means “Rejoice” in Latin—the most common language for Sacred Renaissance music, which forms the core of our repertoire.   
Gaude's debut concerts took place in December 2015 to an overwhelmingly positive response in San Jose and San Francisco. The 2016 calendar year includes Gaude's first appearance at Old First Concerts in San Francisco, as well as repeat performances in San Jose and new ventures in the North Bay.
