Classical Pick of the Week: A Chorus Line
If you love choral and vocal works, you're in luck. Placido Domingo will conduct two performances of music from Zarzuela, a Spanish genre of Opera that includes dancing and spoken word. You can check it out this Thursday and Friday at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica. On Saturday, the Chorale Bel Canto will end their 27th season with a performance of Mendelssohn's oratorio, Elijah. The concert takes place on Saturday at 4 PM in the First United Methodist Church in Pasadena. On Sunday, the Pacific Chorale will perform works for choir, harp, organ, and percussion by Hallock and Rachmaninov's Vespers. The concert starts at 5:30 PM for the old fogeys in the OC (and other people that like to be in bed by 8). If you don't want to drive out to the OC, the Los Angeles Master Chorale is performing at 7 PM that Sunday at the Disney Hall. Titled Americana, the program explores American folk songs and arrangements of spirituals by Moses Hogan, noted African-American composer.
