Join one of the most exciting and dynamic choral groups in Los Angeles! We're passionate about making great music and always on the lookout for more fantastic singers. Membership represents a significant commitment of time, including weekly Tuesday night rehearsals held at either Highlands Church in La Crescenta or at a location to be determined on the West Side (likely UCLA). If you participated in your collegiate chorus or have studied music, you're probably a good candidate. Firmly grounded choral musicians are encouraged to audition.
