Los Angeles Children’s Chorus (LACC), one of the world’s leading children’s choirs, celebrates the holidays with its annual Winter Concert, entitled “Winter Wonderland: Sounds of the Season,” which marks the first stand-alone program led by the Chorus’ new Artistic Director, Fernando Malvar-Ruiz, on two consecutive Sundays, December 9 and 16, 2018, at 7:30 pm, at Pasadena Presbyterian Church. Some 250 choristers are featured in the multi-media vocal program, which is geared for people of all ages and includes an array of favorite carols, seasonal songs from Venezuela and winter-themed works by Bach, Kodály, Elgar, Verdi, Saint-Saëns and others.

The program includes five sections, each based on a different holiday theme and introduced by a single a cappella voice. Among the works featured are Elgar’s evocative The Snow, with lyrics by his wife, Caroline Alice Elgar; Kodály’s Stabat Mater for male voices and Mountain Nights, a wordless piece that uses vocalizations to emulate the sounds of nature and expressed the composer’s deep love of the outdoors; Bach’s cantata Sleepers Awake and the inventive Domine Deus from Mass in G; and Hope for Resolution, composed by Paul Caldwell and Sean Ivory in 1994 to celebrate the end of Apartheid and the beginning of reconciliation in South Africa, which remains particularly poignant today.

Malvar-Ruiz has also programmed a selection of holiday music from Venezuela, where he spent his early childhood, and such beloved carols as Jingle Bells, Deck the Halls and Ding Dong, Merrily on High. Featured as well are L’Dor vador by former cantor Meir Finkelstein; Tervetuloa, a Finnish welcome song; Vera Kistler’s setting of Robert Frost’s poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening; Donald Fraser’s This Christmastide (Jessye’s Carol) composed for legendary soprano Jessye Norman; and Sníh-Snow by Czech composer Petr Eben. The Chorus also performs Britten’s New Year’s Carol; Three Moravian Carols set to Czech folk melodies by Phyllis Tate; Elaine Hagenberg’s As the Rain Hides the Stars; Barber’s Sure on this Shining Night; Verdi’s luminous Laudi Alla Vergine Maria, based on a prayer from Dante’s Paradiso; Joseph Martin’s richly expressive Sing Your Way Home; and Tollite Hostias (Praise Ye the Lord of Hosts) from Saint-Saëns’ “Christmas Oratorio.”

Malvar-Ruiz conducts LACC’s Concert Choir, Chamber Singers and SATB Choir. Associate Artistic Director Mandy Brigham leads the Intermediate Choir, Diana Landis leads the Apprentice Choir, and Dr. Steven Kronauer conducts the Young Men’s Ensemble. The choirs perform separately and combined.

Tickets to LACC’s Winter Concert $27, $40 and $46; children 17 and under are half price. For tickets and information, visit www.lachildrenschorus.org or call (626) 793-4231. Pasadena Presbyterian Church is located at 585 East Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91101.
