The L.A. Choral Lab opens its fourth season with CHRISTMAS LIGHTS, a concert of choral music that's perfect for celebrating the beginning of December and the holiday season.
In addition to the 30 singers of the L.A. Choral Lab, this concert features Dr. Christoph Bull, Organist-In-Residence at First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. Dr. Bull will perform several solo pieces, and he will also accompany the L.A. Choral Lab throughout the concert.
Join us for a concert of musical warmth and light. You'll hear Christmas Lights of all kinds, refracting and reflecting in an array of vocal sonorities and harmonic patterns, all with the L.A. Choral Lab's focus on new music brought to life with authentic performances that dazzle the ear and open the heart.
