Angel City Chorale is excited to present our Summer 2021 virtual concert Play it Forward, premiering Saturday, June 5th at 6:00 PM Pacific Time. The concert will highlight our joy at the prospect of emerging from a long tunnel of isolation. Focusing in on the theme of giving back to our beloved community, Artistic Director Sue Fink directs the chorale in this uplifting, hour-long streaming event featuring both well known and new songs. And we won't just sing about causes near and dear to our hearts, we'll also be showcasing some of the outreach activities we're most proud of. Other highlights include stunning animation, choral-ography, a tree planting, a fun collaborative art project, and of course a visit from our own Angel City Youth Chorale, all performed and filmed using social distancing. It's an upbeat, joy-filled extravaganza you won't want to miss!
As with our 2020 holiday concert, Play it Forward is being offered free of charge as a gift to the chorale’s fans. However, like most arts organizations, Angel City Chorale is struggling, and this concert cost more to produce than a standard live event. Your tax-deductible donations are appreciated, and help us bring music to the world.
Make sure to RSVP for this exciting concert by the America’s Got Talent semi-finalists, and Los Angeles’s premiere community chorale.
“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.
