Event of the Week

L.A. Master Chorale Chamber Singers

Ramon C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts

2/16/2012 - 2/16/2012

80 STUDENTS FROM DOWNTOWN LA’S CORTINES HIGH SCHOOL COMPOSE
AND PREMIERE MAJOR NEW CHORAL WORK IN CONJUNCTION WITH
LOS ANGELES MASTER CHORALE CHAMBER SINGERS

Thursday, February 16, 2012, 7 PM, at High School's Main Theatre
Performance, Open to Public, is Free

Some 80 high school students from downtown Los Angeles’ Ramon C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts have collaborated to write original music and lyrics for a major oratorio, “The Legend of Kaguya” in just 18 short weeks – a feat even a seasoned professional composer would be hard pressed to accomplish. Not only have these gifted students composed the work, but their prodigious vocal talents will also be on display when they present the world premiere of the oratorio in conjunction with the acclaimed LA Master Chorale Chamber Singers in a free concert on Thursday, February 16, 7 pm, in the school’s main theatre.

An oratorio is an extended musical composition with a text dramatic in character for solo voices, chorus and orchestra, and performed without action, costume or scenery. They are big, sophisticated, complex musical works - not for the faint of heart to compose or perform.
