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.

MISSED THE CONCERT?
We are so proud of our Holiday Homecoming concert. What a wonderful way to close out our 30th anniversary year! In case you missed it and to ensure that all of our fans have the opportunity to see the show, we are offering a Livestream Recording/Concert Video available to view for free through January 15th 2024 at 11:59pm PT.
Watch and listen as we invoke the warmth of the season with our singing family of 180 voices and the ACC Orchestra led by Artistic Director, Sue Fink, to rejoice at this special time of year. Holiday Homecoming is a diverse, inclusive and uplifting musical experience for all audiences featuring a selection of traditional and new seasonal songs across different genres, including mariachi, gospel and pop as well as a special performance by the Angel City Youth Chorale.
This year, we established partnerships to livestream and share our concerts with various organizations including Ronald McDonald House (Southern California Chapter), UCLA Medical Center, Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Miller Children's Hospital, Downtown Women's Center and Prison Fellowship Ministries and to reach people in and outside Los Angeles who could use the lift of holiday music but could not come see us live.
RHYTHMS OF THE AMERICAS
Take a thrilling musical journey throughout the Western Hemisphere with Angel City Chorale in an all-new concert event, Rhythms of the Americas. The America’s Got Talent semi-finalists and Los Angeles’s premier community choir returns to the stage at Royce Hall on the UCLA campus for one performance only on Sunday, June 9 at 3:00pm.
The many cultures of the Americas share an incredibly rich choral music tradition, and we will be mining the breadth and depth of the region to present a concert unlike anything you’ve likely experienced before. Expect songs in a wide variety of styles and five different languages, including English, Spanish, and Portuguese, plus Native American and Afro-Brazilian languages. There will be dancing, and clapping, and drumming, and sounds, harmonies, and emotions to make your spine tingle and your spirit soar. As usual, we will also be joined by our beloved Angel City Youth Chorale. We are thrilled to welcome guest conductor Dr. Cristian Grases, the Vice Dean of Classical Studies and Composition at USC’s Thornton School of Music, to lead the 190-voice chorale in this ambitious and exciting program, and we promise you don’t want to miss it. There’s nothing like seeing ACC live, and tickets start at just $25. However, if you can’t make it in person, the concert will also be livestreamed.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION ON SPRING 2024
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.
