LOS ANGELES MASTER CHORALE: "Made in L.A" http://www.lamc.org/performances/2015-11-15-made-in-la Los Angeles has long been at the crossroads of musical creativity! Drawing from a bottomless pool of talent – from rising stars to Hollywood studios – L.A. has consistently nurtured the most innovative composers, artists and musicians and introduced them to the world. For nearly 50 years, former LAMC composer in residence Morten Lauridsen has been educating and inspiring the next generation of American choral composers at the University of Southern California, including alums Dale Trumbore and Matthew Brown, whose works share their mentor’s impeccable craftsmanship. Moira Smiley, a self-described “vocal shape-shifter,” makes her LAMC debut with a work that draws from her extensive roots in Eastern European folk music and Shawn Kirchner, LAMC’s second composer in residence, is represented by his very first commission for the Master Chorale. Highlighting the concert are world premieres by prolific composers who have successful careers crossing over from film to concert halls, including the legendary Paul Chihara and Emmy Award-nominated House of Cards composer Jeff Beal. Filipino-American composer Nilo Alcala’s new work for chorus and Subla – a modern day Filipino kulintang ensemble led by master musician Danny Kalanduyan – completes the final chapter of the Chorale’s LA is the World commissioning series. And it’s all made right here in L.A. by the best and brightest musicians of our day!Tickets Save
