LOS ANGELES MASTER CHORALE
GRANT GERSHON, KIKI & DAVID GINDLER ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
Join over 10,000 singers for the biggest choral event in California state history! We will perform choral masterworks like Morten Lauridsen's Dirait-on and Eric Whitacre's Sleep, alongside popular favorites like Lean On Me, Pentatonix's Sing, the Beatles' Hey Jude, and many, many more.
Eric Whitacre, Swan Family Artist-in-Residence, hosts this live choral concert with the Los Angeles Master Chorale and 2,000 audience singers at Walt Disney Concert Hall, which will simultaneously broadcast to five California satellite venues where choirs will be assembled and singing with each other in real-time. In addition, the concert will be live-streamed online for anyone in the world to watch – and sing along. And best of all, it's absolutely FREE.
They will be live-streaming the entire performance on the day of the event. You can even watch from home and sing-along! Get more information here.
If you’re going to San Francisco, you are bound to know many songs that celebrate its history and its charms. There is something about the Bay Area that has long inspired songwriters and singers across the decades. The Bay’s spirit can be epitomized in the line “San Francisco, open your Golden Gate, you let no stranger wait, outside your door,” a philosophy that extends to Big Sing California.
