In this time when live concerts are not possible, Angel City Chorale is still excited to bring holiday joy to our fans in Los Angeles and around the world. It’s Not the Holidays ‘til the Angels Sing, the Virtual Concert, will premiere Saturday, December 12th at 6:00 PM Pacific Time. This unique hour-long streaming event, filmed entirely using social distancing, will feature artistic director Sue Fink leading the chorale in a selection of beautiful holiday songs both new and old, and of course an audience sing-along. You won’t believe your eyes when you see how we manage to pull this off!
To make it easier for everyone to enjoy, the concert 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 costs more to produce than a standard live event. In lieu of a ticket purchase, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the chorale.
Saturday, December 12, 2020, 6pm Pacific.
“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.
