Lost holiday shows hit L.A. arts groups hard. Here's how

Thank you Los Angeles Times for highlighting the challenges of this holiday season for arts organizations.

While we can't gather for our annual Festival of Carols or "Messiah" Sing-Along, we're starting a new tradition with Holiday Karaoke on December 17 at 7 pm (PST). This online event will feature three new virtual choirs, participatory sing-alongs, and archival favorites from seasons past. We hope you'll join us.

For theater and dance companies, the COVID-19 cancellation of "A Christmas Carol" and "The Nutcracker" means lost revenue. But the hurt extends beyond dollars.

This Thanksgiving week, we're grateful to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture.

Collectively, they've shown their support for the arts by distributing $10 million in federal CARES Act funding to arts organizations across LA County. This critical funding helps cover essential expenses during this unique year.

The Healing Power of Singing

"I’ve been singing in a choir ever since— even on Zoom during the pandemic, because it isn’t safe to sing in person now— and each rehearsal is a lifeline, a connected thread, an intake of air working toward a collective voice."

This article from The New York Times is a true testament to the transformative power of choral music.

I was facing some shadows in my life. Could singing with others help me reclaim my voice and calm my fast-beating heart?

I am so sorry for all the preparation and work done and then performances were cancelled. I hope you can squeeze the Faure requiem in next year's program? I cannot wait to see you perform again. Stay safe!
And now Star Wars in Stockholm. IMAX and 3D and with #LAMC singing for me. Lovely! ❤️🙏🏼🤗
Thank you #LosAngelesMasterChorale for the #LargePrint Programs/Song Books at #BigSing2019! Definitely easier to participate with everyone! Looking forward to more large print material. Vision and reading is something most of us take for granted. However, many of us find it difficult to read regular sized printed material. Glasses and surgery cannot fix our problem. #LAMC stepped up to the plate and hit a home run enabling more of us to participate. Bravo! (Sorry for the baseball analogy :/ )
Hey, Y'all - Would any of you be interested a ticket to the upcoming Annie Awards on February 2, 7:00 at Royce Hall? (it's after our Tan Dun rehearsal in Glendale). I have about 3-5 tickets that I won't be using and can "sell" them at face value price. You may have seen my post about Chris Willis' nomination for music for "Mickey Mouse" as well as the posthumous award my late dad will be receiving as being the first black animator in Hollywood. If you're interested, let me know.
You can see Eric Whitacre live and participate in his choir at the Grand Rally for Music Education at the 2019 NAMM Show!
Bravo! I loved the Lagrime experience (9/13, Ravinia IL). Beautifully done. Please film it when the time is right.
I am watching the Big Sing video one more time before it goes away. It was a fabulous experience! The selections, the exquisite performances by the LAMC, and the statewide community of singers who joined voices on a Saturday afternoon. I look forward to the next time! ❤️🎶 ❤️
Here's a treat amid the chaos. Check out LA Master Chorale's Big Sing. It's awesome!!
