Los Angeles Master Chorale

About this Artist

The Los Angeles Master Chorale is our country’s leading independent professional choral organization and one of Southern California’s most vibrant cultural treasures. It is led by Grant Gershon, Kiki & David Gindler Artistic Director, and President and CEO Jean Davidson, and is a founding resident company of The Music Center and choir-in-residence at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

The Chorale reaches over 175,000 people a year through its concert series at Walt Disney Concert Hall, its international touring of innovative works, and its performances with the LA Phil and others. Its discography includes eight recordings under Gershon and the Deutsche Grammophon recording of Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 with the LA Phil, for which LAMC won a Best Choral Performance Grammy with the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus, National Children’s Chorus, and Pacific Chorale. The Chorale is featured on such movie soundtracks as Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Throughout 2018 and 2019, the Chorale toured its production of Lagrime di San Pietro, directed by Peter Sellars, earning rave reviews across the globe. Süddeutsche Zeitung called the 2019 Salzburg Festival performance “painfully beautiful,” while the Sydney Morning Herald praised Lagrime di San Pietro as “stunning.”

The Los Angeles Master Chorale is committed to fostering music education in schools. Its education programs include residencies that encourage students to write and perform their own songs; an expansive Oratorio Project for high school students; and the annual High School Choir Festival, which brings teenagers from around the Southland to perform in Walt Disney Concert Hall.

In 2017, the Chorale was inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame.
