A defining moment of favorite LA Master Chorale onstage experience:
That time there was an EARTHQUAKE while we were singing Daphnis et Chloé with Charles Dutoit and the LA Phil in Disney Hall... Lights swinging above us, organ pipes shaking, audience freaking out... Maestro Dutoit didn't miss a beat! even though a few of the violins were ready to BOLT! Fortunately, there was no damage, no injuries, and the performance continued flawlessly. Talk about an "exciting" concert experience!
What are you listening to these days? I spend a lot of time in my car and I love variety, so I listen to good old-fashioned So Cal radio. My pre-sets include FM 91.5 KUSC, 88.1 KJZZ, 103.5 KOST, 94.7 The Wave, 97.1 Amp Radio, 105.1 Go Country, and AM 710 ESPN Radio (don't judge!)
