BIG SING CALIFORNIA
SATURDAY, JULY 21, 2018 - 2 PM (PDT)
Join over 10,000 singers for the biggest choral event in California state history! We will perform choral masterworks like Morten Lauridsen's Dirait-on and Eric Whitacre's Sleep, alongside popular favorites like Lean On Me, Pentatonix's Sing, the Beatles' Hey Jude, and many, many more. Whether you sign up for a hub venue or plan to participate at home, you will be part of a group singing event unlike any other.
Composer and Artist-in-Residence Eric Whitacre hosts this live choral concert with the Los Angeles Master Chorale and 2,000 audience singers at Walt Disney Concert Hall, which will simultaneously be broadcasted to five California satellite venues where choirs will be assembled and singing with each other in real-time. In addition, the concert will be live-streamed online (right here) for anyone in the world to watch – and sing along. And best of all, it's absolutely FREE!
