Angel City Chorale Offers Two Concerts

The Angel City Chorale (ACC) will hold its 23rd annual spring concert, Rhythm Planet, at 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, June 4 and 5, at the Wilshire United Methodist Church, 4350 Wilshire Blvd. Free parking is available in the venue’s small parking lot and on neighborhood streets.

Artistic Director Sue Fink will share conducting honors with two-time Grammy-winning composer Christopher Tin, a Santa Monica resident.

The concert is a musical journey that traverses the globe and celebrates the diversity and humanity that unites us all. ACC’s more than 150 voices (including many Palisadians), its orchestra, and a rhythm section playing percussion instruments from around the world will combine to create joyous celebration of Earth’s rich cultures and beauty.

Selections from Tin’s two world-bending masterpieces will be featured. The Drop That Contained the Sea depicts global visions of water, from the snows of Mongolia to the rains of Africa. Calling All Dawns celebrates the circle of life in 12 languages.

Pieces by Aaron Copland, Moses Hogan and Eriks Ešenvalds will also be performed.
ACC performs two concerts seasonally, and has performed at numerous venues including Walt Disney Concert Hall and Carnegie Hall.

Tickets for each concert are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. Children’s tickets (ages 5-12) are $22 and seniors are $27 (both in advance and at the door). VIP tickets (all categories) are $75.
