In this ever-changing world with its endless technological possibilities, it’s getting harder to find ways to connect beyond social media; making it more important now than ever before. Angel City Chorale is excited to bring you a fun, multidimensional and truly innovative evening.
What does “interactive” mean? ACC spent much of the winter break discussing just that idea. In these days of constant social media interaction, people are searching for ways to reconnect with one another, their passions, their dreams…
It also means finding ways to make those connections using exciting tech advances: by being together, whether in one large concert hall or via satellite from Africa. We’re reaching across boundaries to invite and welcome, and breaking down walls that keep us separated.
We hope to build each other up, to honor all that connects us together as humans on this wondrous planet.
From Artistic Director, Sue Fink:
Angel City has always been known for our fresh spontaneous approach to choral performance and our devotion to diversity of membership and material, but this time we are out to break the choral mold entirely. The music is breathtakingly varied from Bach to R&B Gospel but that’s just the beginning of the adventure. Traditional pieces will be reinvented with multi-dimensional tools. We will use apps, screens, visual artists and audience participation to break down the fourth wall and take our audience where no choir has ever gone before. We will have virtual guest performers from South Africa and visual artists interpreting our performance live and more. I don’t want to give away all the surprises but for once we are going to ask the audience to NOT turn their cell phones off.
The inclusive, participatory concerts will take place at Wilshire United Methodist Church in Los Angeles over two very special nights on Saturday, June 3, and Sunday, June 4, 2017. Tickets range in price from $22 for children to $75 for VIP packages. The performances begin at 7:00pm.
