From the Andes to the plains, the mountains to the sea, South America has become a hotbed of musical innovation. The â€śVenezuelan choral miracle,â€ť fostered by the same El Sistema that produced Gustavo Dudamel, has spawned over 2,000 new choirs and a brilliant crop of composers to meet an insatiable demand for repertoire. Weâ€™ll highlight works by Alberto Grau, MarĂa Guinand and the new generation of Venezuelan choral composers â€” everything from evocations of the earth goddess to rhythmically virtuoso popular songs of the barrios and the llanos. We invited back Huayucaltia, L.A.'s most innovative Latin American folk jazz ensemble, to join our singers in a world premiere by Gabriela Lena Frank. This colorful musical tapestry will be dramatic, vibrant, propulsive and fun!
â€śUnder Gershon, the Master Chorale seems to be able to master anything.â€ť LA Times
