The Los Angeles Master Chorale triumphantly celebrated its 50th Anniversary Season in the spring of 2014. This milestone anniversary reminded us to reflect upon our laudatory past, and to proudly acknowledge LAMC’s historical contribution to the artistic stature of Los Angeles as a national center of great choral music. Under the masterful baton of Artistic Director Grant Gershon, LAMC has gained international recognition for excellence, setting the standard for the choral arts.

On the eve of our 51st season, we now fix our gaze squarely on LAMC’s future and the next fifty years of glorious music-making by inviting you, a member of our family of passionate supporters, to join us on Sunday, March 1, 2015, for LAMC’s Annual Gala Celebration at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Gala guests will enjoy an unforgettable evening of music and glamour, including a private performance by the Los Angeles Master Chorale from the Walt Disney Concert Hall stage, a gourmet dinner by Patina, irresistible auction items, dancing, and as always, the breathtaking LAMC “Surround Sing”- a favorite Gala tradition! Our premiere guests will enjoy extra VIP treatment and enhanced benefits packages, including invitations to LAMC’s exclusive Founders Party.

This particular night will also pay tribute to our President & CEO, Terry Knowles, who has provided nearly 15 years of visionary leadership, playing a key role in bringing the organization to the national prominence it enjoys today. Terry’s wise stewardship has included overseeing LAMC’s transition to its current home at Walt Disney Concert Hall over 10 years ago, and shepherding our organization into an unprecedented era of growth and stability. Terry’s tenure as President & CEO will end at the conclusion of the 2014|15 season, and LAMC looks forward to recognizing her significant contributions in grand style by honoring her at the 2015 Gala Celebration.

LAMC’s Annual Gala is our sole fundraising event each year, and your participation is essential to the enduring success, artistry and professionalism of the Chorale.

Join us for an unforgettable evening as we celebrate Terry and embrace a bold future for the Chorale!
