Date: November 29, 2011

The Los Angeles Master Chorale’s seasonal favorite, Holiday Wonders: Festival of Carols, which has sold out for the past two years, expands to two Saturday matinees December 3 and 10, 2011, 2 pm, at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Cherished holiday carols such as Joy to the World, The First Noel, Hark the Herald Angels Sing and others – sung to perfection by 115 members of the Chorale under Music Director Grant Gershon’s baton – set a joyful mood, enhanced by John Rutter’s thrilling three-movement Gloria. The program also includes several arrangements of carols by the Chorale’s own Shawn Kirchner. Dazzling brass and Disney Hall’s iconic pipe organ, played by John West, add sonic flourish to make this concert a highlight of the season. Tickets for children 6-12 are discounted in all sections. (Children under six not admitted.) Holiday Wonders: Festival of Carols is made possible, in part, with support from The Bank of America Charitable Foundation and the Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts.
Tickets range from $19 - $99; for children ages 6-12 tickets are 25% off price in all sections. Group rates are available.
