ACC Outreach

Since 1997, Angel City Chorale has used outreach to help foster our mission of building
community one song at a time, and to use the power of music to lift the human spirit. Our
outreach activities reinforce the bonds of our choral community and provide a deeper, more
meaningful connection to our beloved home city of Los Angeles.

Tour of Hope

The annual Tour of Hope has been our major outreach program for the past 25 years. Every
holiday season, we take our concert on the road to local soup kitchens, homeless shelters,
nursing homes, and agencies serving youth and veterans, bringing the joy of live choral music to
people who would otherwise not have the opportunity to experience it.
In addition to serenading them with song, we also donate food, toiletries, medical supplies,
clothing, and school supplies to our host organizations.
