Our mission is to engage, enrich and inspire our audiences, singers, and our diverse community by performing great choral music with a passionate commitment to excellence, and to increase access to and appreciation of choral music in greater Los Angeles. Recent Angeles Chorale performance highlights include A John Williams Celebration with the LA Phil at Disney Hall in 2014, and Barbra Streisand’s Back to Brooklyn concert at the Hollywood Bowl in 2012. In 2014 the chorale appeared with the LA Phil at the Hollywood Bowl in An Evening of Chinese Splendor and in 2015 the Angeles Chorale performed in Distant Words: Music from Final Fantasy at the Microsoft Theater. In December 2015 the Angeles Chorale released An American Christmas, recorded live in concert and featuring works by Morten Lauridsen, Morten Lauridsen, Daniel Pinkham, Alfred Burt, Randol Alan Bass, and other traditional holiday music. Concert Season: Made in AmericaIn its 42nd season, Made in America, the Angeles Chorale brings to life the diverse musical tapestry of America with works both familiar and new. In December, we explored homegrown holiday music by local composers with An L.A. Christmas. The cornerstone piece of our performance included Morten Lauridsen’s Mid-Winter Songs, and our annual candlelight sing-along, a crowd favorite full of the most beloved holiday carols and tunes. Then, in March, we celebrated the American Heartland with Sounds of the Smoky Mountains featuring early American folk music like Shenandoah, and a contemporary bluegrass interpretation of Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven. Finally, we close out the season with A Musical Bite of the Big Apple. We’ll perform notable pieces by Leonard Bernstein, including Chichester Psalms and selections from West Side Story, as well as other crowd-pleasing Broadway selections.
