Los Angeles Master Chorale will commence its new season, Sept. 22 & 24, with a program at Disney Hall consisting of Leonard Bernstein’s CHICHESTER PALMS in honor of the composer’s centenary, paired with Carl Orff’s CARMINA BURANA.

A musical depiction of Bernstein’s wish for brotherhood and peace, blending biblical Hebrew verse and Christian choral tradition, CHICHESTER PSALMS features some of the most tender, hope-filled music Bernstein ever composed.

Orff’s shamelessly popular and wildly rambunctious CARMINA BURANA depicts medieval revelry and celebrates all the pleasures to be found in life–-and at the concert hall.

One hundred singers plus a full orchestra will back up the lead singers: So Young Park, soprano; Nicholas Phan, tenor; and Stephen Powell, baritone. Grant Gershon conducts the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus.

On Sunday, October 29 guest conductor Maria Guinand will lead L.A. Master Chorale in a performance of DIA DE LOS MUERTOS. Timed to coincide with Mexico’s vibrant Day of the Dead, the concert will explore a range of Latin American songs and music in honor of the ancestors who came before us–-and the lives we share with each other.

Rodolfo Halfter, Alberto Grau, Leo Brouwer, Diana Syrse and Alberto Ginastera are the main singers, backed up by an a cappella chorus of 62 voices.

At Disney Hall. Call 213-972-7282 or visit
