The de Angelis Vocal Ensemble was created in 2005 to enrich and broaden the southern California arts community. While this large geographic area offers several sizeable choral ensembles, very few professional chamber ensembles are present.
In addition to our small size and primary performance of a cappella [unaccompanied] repertoire, our projects attempt to program music that is unique to the smaller, a cappella ensemble, and provides the community with a more eclectic and cutting edge presentation of choral music. Our organization is known for our innovative arts programming which engages the diverse cultural expression of the Southern California community.
In addition to championing lesser known works of the past, de Angelis has an unwavering commitment to today’s composers. De Angelis is an advocate for the choral arts in the community, corporate, and educational arenas, and is committed to increased public awareness, participation and investment in the choral arts in Orange County. If you have not had the opportunity to experience one of our programs, you are missing out on a rare Orange County cultural experience.
The unique combination of the extraordinary setting at the Basilica at the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano, and this thrilling and captivating ensemble is not to be missed. Come experience one of Orange County’s best kept secrets!
