The 100-voice ANGELES CHORALE is a volunteer organization of auditioned, professional-level choral singers rehearsing and performing in the Los Angeles area. Its mission is to present choral concerts of the highest caliber, expand the musical abilities of its singers, and broaden appreciation for fine choral music in the Los Angeles community.
In 1996 Donald Neuen became Artistic Director of the Chorale. Under his direction the Angeles Chorale became best known for its productions of the classical masterworks for chorus and orchestra. Currently Neuen serves as the Resident Guest Conductor for the Angeles Chorale and conducted the Chorale in Handel’s Messiah this month in Pasadena.
Dr. John Sutton is the current Artistic Director. He will conduct the other two concerts of this, the Chorale’s 37th season. In March the program will feature the Gospel Mass of Robert Ray and will also include spirituals and jazz. The June concert is titled Stories of Our Lives, and will include songs about our shared human experience from childhood to old age.
The Chorale also records music for the “movie trailer industry.” Their voices are frequently heard in the trailers for major movies, such as Spiderman, The Deathly Hallows, and Pirates of the Caribbean.
The Chorale has performed with many of the local orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Glendale Symphony, Long Beach Symphony and Pasadena Symphony. The Chorale will participate in the Mahler Project as part of the chorus for the Symphony of a Thousand under Gustavo Dudamel in February.
