CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
Sunday, December 3, 2017
3:00 pm & 7:00 pm
Los Angeles, CA

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 in the beautiful sancutary of First Church 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.

Pieces on this concert include...

We Three Kings, (arr. Ben Bram, two-time Grammy-award winning arranger)
Angels We Have Heard on High (arr. Saunder Choi, L.A. Choral Lab tenor)
O Come Emmanuel (arr. Michael Alfera, L.A. Choral Lab artistic director)
Love and Joy Everlasting (Parmer Fuller, L.A.-based composer & musical director)
In the Bleak Midwinter (Richard Burchard)
O Nata Lux (Matt Wetmore)
Fantasia on Christmas Carols (Ralph Vaughan Williams)

On this concert, we're proud to introduce our new Artist-In-Residence, Mr. Jeffrey Bernstein. The L.A. Choral Lab has sung several of Jeff's pieces, including two world premieres, we are excited to welcome Jeff, who will be conducting selections by Josquin Des Prez and Ralph Vaughan Williams.

These pieces, and more, form a long string of musical christmas lights that we can't wait to share with you. This concert is our offering to you, with our best wishes for a joyful holiday season. We hope to see you at one of our two performances on Sunday, December 3!

In the spirit of love and of the season,

The L.A. Choral Lab
