Please join Angel City Chorale (ACC), now in its 23rd year, in concert this June for a stunning musical journey that traverses the globe!
The acclaimed Los Angeles choir, led by Artistic Director Sue Fink, will present Rhythm Planet, featuring the music of two-time Grammy-winning composer Christopher Tin and other world beats. A concert highlight will include ACC's version of Toto's "Africa," which has recently gone viral (over 2.6 million YouTube views). Pieces by Aaron Copland, Moses Hogan, and Eriks Esenvalds will also be performed.
With two special family-friendly evenings, Rhythm Planet celebrates both diversity as well as the humanity that unites us all. ACC's orchestra, ethnic percussion, and the grandeur of 150 voices will combine to create an exhilarating and joyous celebration of Earth's rich cultures and beauty. Special guest Christopher Tin will also conduct a portion of the concert.
Since its founding in 1993, Angel City Chorale has performed at a variety of venues from the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles to Carnegie Hall in New York, appeared on national television, sung with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and worked with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Luther Vandross. The choir has also recorded four highly regarded albums.
