The Los Angeles Master Chorale opened their 43rd Season with a Concert and Black Tie Gala at the Walt Disney Hall. The program, aptly entitled "Embark" and conducted by Music Director, Grant Gershon, featured the L.A. Chamber Orchestra as guest ensemble. The program highlighted a "Homage to Haydn" and was greeted with enthusiastic applause. A special treat of the evening was the Chorale's signature surround-sing, where all 120 singers created a circle around the perimeter of the gala room, serenading the black tie clad guests during their elegant three-course supper. This event raised more than $285,000 for the L.A. Master Chorale's artistic and educational programs. The LAMC will have 11 more performances from December through June. Performances and ticket information can be viewed at www.lamc.org.
