FROM OUR PRESIDENT & CEO
It's hard to believe that our 2021–22 season is coming to an end on June 25 and 26 with Bach’s B-minor Mass. We faced many challenges and had to make some hard decisions to accommodate the pandemic, but I’m proud that we were able to keep all of you safe—and that we were able to regale you with a full slate of performances by this country’s premier professional choir.
Our season finale will include some special guests, starting with tenor Nicholas Phan, “one of the world’s most remarkable singers” (Boston Globe), and countertenor Reginald Mobley, who has been dazzling audiences on both sides of the Atlantic all year. Julia Metzler and Steve Pence both step out from the choir to round out the list of soloists for B-minor Mass.
Also joining us on June 25 and 26 is our neighbor from Long Beach, Musica Angelica. This outstanding ensemble is in its 27th season and has become known across our city and beyond for its interpretations of Baroque and Classical music. I’m sure they’ll perfectly complement our singers and soloists.
The end of one season presages the beginning of another, so remember to mark on your calendar the 2022–23 season opener, Haydn’s Creation on October 8 and 9. If you haven’t subscribed yet to our season, now’s the time!
Many of you know that this is also the time of year when we ask you to donate to the Chorale. We are always grateful for your support, and if you have given to our spring campaign, we thank you.
I hope to see you all on June 25 or 26 for Bach’s B-minor Mass. I know you’ll enjoy it.
—Jean Davidson, President & CEO
