Now in its 28th year among the premier choral groups in Southern California, Angel City Chorale is proud to represent the spirit and diversity of Los Angeles in our membership, our music, and our outreach activities, thereby fulfilling our mission to “Build Community One Song at a Time.” Celebrated Artistic Director Sue Fink founded the Chorale at world-famous McCabe’s Guitar Shop in 1993 with 18 singers – which has now grown to over 180 talented and dedicated singers, presenting a broad and eclectic repertoire including classical, gospel, jazz, pop and world music. While the Covid 19 pandemic has curtailed many of the chorale's activities, we are continuing to meet virtually and record music until it is safe to resume our regular concert schedule. We invite you to visit our YouTube Channel to watch our video of Sogno di Volare and numbers from our recent virtual holiday concert, as well as performances from past concerts.
“As a choir, we exist to bring people together, to elevate the human spirit and celebrate our unity of spirit and diversity of expression. We may be separated by walls and distance, but not by heart – not from each other or from the beauty and diversity of the city we represent. We firmly believe that we will make it through this crisis, that we will come together again, sing together again and fly again.”
- Sue Fink, Founder and Artistic Director
Angel City Chorale is proud to release a life-affirming music video to remind the people of Los Angeles and beyond – “We will fly again!”
In the face of the COVID-19 epidemic, we feel compelled to offer our conviction that, while it may seem we are all facing this crisis alone, we can still create extraordinary beauty together.
The 4-minute video features the chorale members pursuing their daily safer-at-home routines – ranging from home schooling and cooking to providing medical care – and pulls these disparate yearnings together for a moving expression of determination and resilience. The soundtrack is our live concert recording of Christopher Tin’s “Sogno di Volare” (The Dream of Flight), a soaring expression of the indomitable human spirit. Tin’s lyrics originate in the writings of Leonardo da Vinci about his own imaginings of flight.
Angel City Chorale is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture.
