Los Angeles Children’s Chorus (LACC) – lauded as “one of the world’s foremost children’s choirs” (Pasadena Star News) and described by critics as “hauntingly beautiful” (Los Angeles Times) and “astonishingly polished” (Performances Magazine) – is recognized throughout the country for its exceptional artistic quality and technical ability. Founded in 1986 and led by Artistic Director Anne Tomlinson since 1996, LACC performs with such leading organizations as LA Opera, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Los Angeles Master Chorale, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Pasadena Symphony, Calder Quartet, Jacaranda and MUSE/IQUE.
Now in its 28th season, the Chorus’s roster includes nearly 400 children ages 6-18 from 50 communities across Los Angeles in six choirs – Preparatory, Apprentice, Intermediate and Concert Choirs, Chamber Singers and Young Men’s Ensemble – and a program of First Experiences in Singing classes for younger singers.
LACC has toured North and South America, Africa, China, Australia and Europe. In 2014, the Concert Choir travels to England and Germany, the Young Men’s Ensemble to Alaska, and the Intermediate Choir to Tucson, Arizona.
The Chorus commissioned and produced the world-premiere of Keepers of the Night, an opera by Peter Ash and Donald Sturrock. LACC appears on Los Angeles Master Chorale’s critically acclaimed Decca recording A Good Understanding, and Plácido Domingo’s Deutsche Grammophon recording Amore Infinito (“Infinite Love”). The subject of a trilogy of documentaries by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Freida Lee Mock, LACC is featured in the Academy Award-nominated Sing!, about a year in the life of the chorus; Sing Opera!, documenting the production of Keepers of the Night; and Sing China!, chronicling its groundbreaking tour to China just prior to the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
