“Angel City has always been known for our fresh, spontaneous approach to choral performance and our devotion to diversity of membership and material, but this time we are out to break the choral mold entirely,” said ACC founder and director Sue Fink. “The music is breathtakingly varied from Bach to R&B Gospel but that’s just the beginning of the adventure. Traditional pieces will be reinvented with multi-dimensional tools. We will use apps, screens, visual artists, and audience participation to break down the fourth wall and take our audience where no choir has ever gone before. We will have virtual guest performers from South Africa and visual artists interpreting our performance live and more. I don’t want to give away all the surprises but for once we are going to ask the audience to not turn their cell phones off.”
The concert will blend pieces from traditional masters like Bach and Mozart with contemporary favorites including Cyndi Lauper and The Beatles to create a radical, cross-generational experience that will resonate with attendees of any age or background.
The show will finish with a dazzling rendition of “All You Need Is Love,” which melds past and present as a beautiful ode to the 50th anniversary of The Beatles performing their song for the world’s first simulcast in 1967.
