Make your holidays more merry with Angel City Chorale's The More The Merrier concert. Livestreamed from Royce Hall in Los Angeles on December 4th, Artistic Director Sue Fink leads the 150 voice ensemble — accompanied by the ACC orchestra — in a selection of beautiful and celebratory numbers that are sure to bring joy to the heart of even the most diehard Grinch. Look for perennial favorites wrapped in shiny new arrangements, like the beloved Carol of the Bells, the English carol Wassail, and a stunning Native Peoples-inspired arrangement of The Huron Carol, as well as gospel renditions of Go Tell It on the Mountain and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, and more. Chanukah celebrators will love the traditional Mi Y’malel and the hilarious and rousing Chanukah in Santa Monica. You'll get more songs, more togetherness, more fun, more hope, and more joy with this fun-filled concert — The More The Merrier! And of course as always, we are thrilled to include our very own ANGEL CITY YOUTH CHORALE in the festivities.
We hope you'll enjoy the video of the livestream now through January 6, 2023. Either by yourself or with the whole family, it's a holiday treat you don't want to miss.

Join Angel City Chorale (ACC) as we celebrate the culmination of our 30th anniversary year with Holiday Homecoming!
As live music returns to Los Angeles in full force, ACC is thrilled to once again be performing on the famed Royce Hall stage. This is your home for the holidays: whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or simply the joyful spirit of the yuletide, come join us as we invoke the warmth of the season and gather with our singing family to rejoice at this special time of year.
A cornerstone of Holiday Homecoming, Kenny Loggins in Celebrate Me Home sums it all up: “Play me one more song that I’ll always remember that I can recall whenever I find myself too all alone. I can sing me home.” Arbolito de Navidad (Little Christmas Tree) is a heartwarming holiday story wrapped in an energetic mariachi arrangement. The concert will also feature the inspirational The Light of Hope, an original song from ACC Artistic Director Sue Fink and longtime choir soloist standout Dr. Reverend Donald Paredes that will pump up the goosebump
factor and maybe bring a tear or two to even the most cynical listener.
More than just Hanukkah celebrants will delight in the rousing Judah and His Maccabees and the moving Hine Ma Tov. Fresh, new orchestrated arrangements of familiar titles — God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, I’ll Be Home for Christmas — defy expectations and evoke a sense of wonder. The lively gospel of Children, Go Where I Send Thee will have you on your feet. We will also be joined by the ACC Orchestra and Angel City Youth Chorale for this wonderful concert.
Whether your idea of the holidays is Ho! Ho! Ho! or Bah Humbug, the stirring 180-voice Angel City Chorale, with Artistic Director Sue Fink and the ACC Orchestra, will raise your spirits and have you singing. The merry and rapturous festivities take place at Royce Hall, UCLA, Los Angeles on Saturday, December 2 at 7:00pm and Sunday, December 3 at 3:00pm PST. For those unable to attend the live performance, ACC will be livestreaming the Sunday concert.
