The ANGELES CHORALE is an all-volunteer, professional-level, auditioned group of 100 Angelenos from all walks of life, aged 21 to over 80, brought together by a shared passion for great choral music. Its mission is to engage, enrich, and inspire its audiences, singers, and a diverse community by performing great choral music with a passionate commitment to excellence, and to increase access to and appreciation of choral music in greater Los Angeles.
Under the direction of Dr. John Sutton, the Angeles Chorale is embarking on its 42nd season of music making. Entitled Made in America: The Sound of the American Spirit, the three-concert season takes a musical journey across the U.S., from Southern California holiday tunes to the traditional bluegrass melodies of the heartland, to the vibrant sounds of the Big Apple.
In addition to annual performances in the Holiday Sing-Along for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, recent Angeles Chorale performance highlights include A John Williams Celebration with the LA Phil at Walt Disney Concert Hall in 2014, and Barbra Streisand’s Back to Brooklyn concert at the Hollywood Bowl in 2012. In 2014 the chorale appeared with the LA Phil at the Hollywood Bowl in An Evening of Chinese Splendor and in 2015 the Angeles Chorale performed in Distant Words: Music from Final Fantasy at the Microsoft Theater.
In December 2015 the Angeles Chorale released An American Christmas, recorded live in concert and featuring works by Morten Lauridsen, Alfred Burt, and Randol Alan Bass.
