Los Angeles Master Chorale to Continue 2021-22 Season with Rachmaninoff's All-Night Vigil, Festival of Carols & More

The Los Angeles Master Chorale, led by Grant Gershon, Kiki & David Gindler Artistic Director, is continuing its 2021-22 season with Rachmaninoff's All-Night Vigil, and the highly anticipated return of beloved holiday favorites, Festival of Carols, Handel's Messiah, and the 40th Annual Messiah Sing-Along.

Rachmaninoff's All-Night Vigil, a stellar demonstration of the full power, complexity, and majesty of the human voice, represents the highest achievement of the Russian Orthodox Church's great choral tradition. This monumental work is virtuosic in its writing and symphonic in its tone, color, and scope. It was written in 1915, as World War l raged, and the Russian Revolution was just around the corner. (Saturday, November 20, 2021, 2 p.m., Sunday, November 21, 2021, 7 p.m.)

The Master Chorale also brings back perennial holiday favorites Festival of Carols, featuring spectacular arrangements of traditional carols from around the world and today's favorites (Saturday, December 4, 2021, 2 p.m., Saturday, December 11, 2021, 2 p.m.); Handel's Messiah, the composer's timeless and glorious masterpiece (Sunday, December 19, 2021, 7 p.m.); and the 40th Annual Messiah Sing-Along, the Master Chorale's joyous holiday tradition where the audience becomes the chorus (Monday, December 20, 2021, 7:30 p.m.).
