SOUTHERN CA VOCAL EVENTS Lauri D. Goldenhersh’s Weekly Highlights

Wow.

The calendar is completely packed, and there is no excuse for staying home:

Concerts abound, with holiday offerings from dozens of ensembles all over Southern California.  (This is a happening place!) Try some seasonal cheer from THE CONCERT SINGERS on Sunday, and check out their new director, PHIL THEODOROU, at his first concert with the oldest choral group in Los Angeles. Click here

Or catch one of the new pro groups in the area, as the very modern NOVA VOCAL ENSEMBLE performs a traditionally-titled program called ‘Lessons and Carols’ on Sunday night, in LA.  This group is growing in multiple ways, and we look forward to hearing what they’re up to…  Learn more about this concert

Don’t forget opera in your bell-jingling euphoria:  OPERA ANIMATA serves up two performances of ‘Hansel and Gretel’ in adorable Monrovia this weekend — just the thing to get your holiday baking vibe going.  (Is that just too much wrong?) Learn more about the new company by clicking here

Also, PACIFIC OPERA PROJECT revives its ‘La Boheme’ (aka ‘The Hipsters’) in Pasadena, with performances through  12/20.  Check out the show’s trailer on YouTube – click here

Don’t let the weekend wear you out, either — Disney Hall is hopping nearly every night next week, with MANHATTAN TRANSFER on Tuesday, the first of two ‘Messiahs’ from LA MASTER CHORALE on Wednesday, and CHANTICLEER on Thursday. (You’ve got your tickets for these already, right?) And if you can’t catch the live ‘Die Meistersinger’ from The Met on Saturday morning, you can still catch the encore screening on Wednesday night.  It’s at movie theaters all over town — Learn more about Met in HD and check the schedule.

CONTINUINGCheck the calendar for details:

Thru 12/20 — Daniel Catàn’s ravishing ‘Florencia en el Amazonas’ has four remaining performances at LA OPERA, but the show’s getting such good reviews that tickets are in high demand. Take care of that sooner rather than later…

Have a hot toddy.  Wear gloves and a scarf for that seven minutes of cold each morning, so you can remind yourself of chillier climes.  And as always, thank you for supporting live singing!
