Classical Music News for September/October 2019



Los Angeles Master Chorale has announced its 2019/20 season.

"It's a surprising mix of the familiar and unfamiliar, inviting you to find joy in making connections between old and new works," said artistic director Grant Gershon. "I hope you'll join us and revel in the remarkable sound worlds that our unparalleled singers create for you."

The season commences on October 19 & 20 with a recital of Bruckner's "Great Mass" and Osvaldo Golijov's "Oceana" (an LA premiere). Gershon conducts a 100-person chorus, orchestra, and a boy soloist. Luciana Souza is the guest soloist.

The Master Chorale's season will continue in December with three concerts. First up is a "Festival of Carols," with Eric Whitacre conducting (Dec. 7 & Dec. 14); it will be followed on Sunday, Dec. 15 with a 25th-anniversary production of Morton Laurindsen's classic "O Magnum Mysterium." Completing the bill will be works by Nico Muhly and Dale Trumbore.

On Wed. Dec. 19, the Master Chorale will offer its 39th annual "Messiah Sing Along," a popular do-it-yourself recital where the audience is the chorus. Bring your own score or purchase one in the lobby.

All concerts are at Walt Disney Concert Hall. For tickets and information call 213-972-7282 or visit
