Los Angeles Master Chorale to be Inducted Into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame
The American Classical Music Hall of Fame (ACMHF) was founded in 1996 and is based in Cincinnati. It seeks to build and sustain enthusiasm for classical music in America by celebrating diverse facets of classical music excellence. Over 100 ensembles and individual musicians and composers have been inducted. The Los Angeles Master Chorale was selected by the Board of Directors earlier this month in recognition of its contributions to classical music.
Thursday's presentation will be made by Catherine Dehoney, the CEO of Chorus America, which is currently holding its annual conference in Los Angeles hosted by the Los Angeles Master Chorale. "It is an honor for the Master Chorale to accept this recognition, and it is fitting that our induction will be made during the last of our three concerts celebrating the 20th anniversary of Morten Lauridsen's Lux Aeterna on a concert program filled with Los Angeles composers. It is also wonderful to receive this in front of so many of our peers from Chorus America," said Artistic Director Grant Gershon.
Members of the public are invited to celebrate this honor at the Master Chorale's inaugural Big Sing L.A. event on Saturday, June 24 at 1 PM in Grand Park. The giant group singing event is free to attend, giving Angelenos the opportunity to sing well-known and easy-to-learn songs with members of the Master Chorale - regardless of experience.
