Angel City Chorale - Roots: Singing Our Stories

Start your summer with the experience of a lifetime as LA’s most extraordinary choir, Angel City Chorale, returns to UCLA’s historic Royce Hall with a multimedia performance filled with visual storytelling, animation, choreography, and of course their inspiring vocal performances.

Share their joy, sacrifice, and triumph as Artistic Director Sue Fink leads the chorale on an uplifting musical journey of determination, hope, and love as they bring to life the stories of the diverse paths that led them home to Los Angeles.

Whether your family arrived in 1620 or 2020, this concert is sure to strike a chord. Joining this year for a special performance at both concerts will be Angel City Youth Chorale, their youth program in collaboration with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Los Angeles County.

About the sponsor:
Now in its 28th year Angel City Chorale is proud to represent the spirit and diversity of Los Angeles in its membership, its music, and its outreach activities, thereby fulfilling its mission to “Build Community One Song at a Time.” Celebrated Artistic Director Sue Fink founded the Chorale at world-famous McCabe’s Guitar Shop in 1993 with 18 singers – which has now grown to over 180 talented and dedicated singers, presenting a broad and eclectic repertoire including classical, gospel, jazz, pop and world music.

Angel City Chorale is perhaps best known for its performances on NBC’s top-rated talent competition America’s Got Talent (2018), making it all the way to the semi-finals. Hailed by Simon Cowell as “one of the best choirs we’ve ever had,” the Chorale earned the coveted Golden Buzzer, touching nearly 20 million viewers with their rich sound and compelling message of unity and diversity. The video of Angel City Chorale’s captivating performance of Toto’s “Africa” has been viewed more than 80 million times by people around the world.

True to their mission of community building, Angel City Chorale is collaborating with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Los Angeles County in forming the Angel City Youth Chorale. And their Tour of Hope program takes their concert repertoire directly to underserved populations and service organizations throughout Los Angeles.
