Monrivia, CA.

More information can be found at www.choralcompany.org or by calling: 626-256-9151.
"Our 'Mystic Voices' concert explores themes of mysticism and spirituality in three parts,” said SGVCC’s Artistic Director Zanaida Robles. “Part one serves as an invocation, featuring music of various composers that invite listeners to be still, to be open, and to be transported. Part two features 'Five Mystical Songs' by Ralph Vaughan Williams - the main course in this feast of music and mysticism. Part three is an affirmation of the spirit in a mix of African American spirituals and gospel music."
