For the first time in two years, the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus will perform in person with concerts in Pasadena and Altadena this winter. Tickets for the winter concerts “How Can I Keep From Singing?” Are now on sale.

“’How can I keep myself from singing?’ is the first full program presented by LACC choirs in two years, ”said LA Children’s Chorus Artistic Director Fernando Malvar-Ruiz in a statement. “With works by Franz Schubert, Randall Thompson, JS Bach and others, the eclectic diversity of the songs connects our return to personal singing, the resilience of our choir singers and the pure joy of making music together. ”

On Sunday, December 12th, the Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, Young Men’s Ensemble and Chorale will perform at the Pasadena Presbyterian Church, 585 E. Colorado Blvd., starting at 7 p.m.

On Sunday, December 19, the Apprentice Choir and Intermediate Choir will perform at the Farnsworth Park Amphitheater in Altadena, 568 Mount Curve Ave. E, from 3 p.m. outdoors

More than 300 choirs will take the stage at both locations. Malvar-Ruiz conducts the Concert Choir, Chamber Singers and Choral des LACC, the SATB choir (soprano, alto, tenor and bass). Deputy Artistic Director Mandy Brigham leads the middle choir. Eric Lifland leads the apprentice choir and Dr. Steven Kronauer conducts the Young Men Ensemble. The choirs perform separately and in combination.

The Los Angeles Children’s Chorus has provided high quality choral music education to more than 2,200 children and adolescents aged 6 to 18 years since 1986. Founded by Rebecca Thompson and Stephanie Mowery, the first LACC choir was put together to do the children’s choir part for Britten’s “War Requiem.” The LACC has focused on six choirs with increasing experience, a program with First Experiences in Singing (FES) classes for 6- to 7-year-old boys and girls and a First Experiences in Choral Singing Ensemble for FES graduates and children attending the preparatory stage.

LACC’s comprehensive program addresses all learning styles and levels of experience through a sequential curriculum for musical proficiency and a rehearsal plan in which the choir singers master a demanding, multilingual repertoire of fine choral music in the bel canto style. Choir singers also acquire a solid training in music theory and receive individual vocal training.

Tickets to the Pasadena concert on December 12th range from $ 29 to $ 49 for adults and $ 14.50 to $ 24.50 for children under 18.

For December 19, tickets are $ 20 for adults and $ 10 for children under 18.
