LA Master Chorale High School Choir Festival

Free

April 23, 2021 • 10:00 am

(All times are in PDT)

Celebrating its 32nd year, the Los Angeles Master Chorale’s annual High School Choir Festival (HSCF) will culminate in a virtual Festival Day video featuring hundreds of high school students from 26 schools. The video will feature three virtual choir performances: “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, “Resilience” by Abbie Betinis, and “Es Tu Tiempo” by Francisco Núñez, all led by Grant Gershon, Kiki & David Gindler Artistic Director. The Festival Day video will also feature pre-recorded and highlights from past festivals.

The High School Choir Festival, one of the longest running arts education programs in Southern California, is designed to deepen students’ exposure to and understanding of the choral art form through a year-long experience leading up to the celebratory Festival Day, traditionally held at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Throughout the pandemic period, the festival experience has been especially meaningful for students, offering a continuous opportunity to connect and build community during an extended period of social isolation.
