Laney Techentin
Philanthropic Honoree

The singers of the Los Angeles Master Chorale
Artistic Honorees

We invite you to join us on May 16 as we honor the philanthropic leadership of Laney Techentin and salute the Voices of L.A. 
with this special online gala. Your generous participation in GALA 2021 will support our Emergency Fund for Artistic Innovation,
keeping our singers singing and enabling the Master Chorale to share great choral music with audiences everywhere.

GALA 2021 will feature a pre-event reception and performances by the Master Chorale including a virtual “surround sing” and the
world premiere of Shine Bright, a new triptych of music videos from composers Reena Esmail, Meredith Monk, and Derrick Spiva, Jr.

Tickets for GALA 2021 start at $25. Donate before March 24 at the GALA Patron level or above
