The Pasadena Chorale has announced its 2022-23 season.
“We have been working hard on putting together a full season of programming for the Chorale’s 22/23 Season,” said Jeffrey Bernstein, the Chorale’s Founding Artistic and Executive Director, in an official press statement. “This season we’re continuing our post-COVID revival with four concerts to move audiences with the beauty of unified choral singing. We’ll be performing in great acoustic spaces, singing gems of the repertoire by Josquin, Vaughan Williams and Brahms, and exploring new music by diverse and young composers.”
The season kicks off with “Fall Follies,” a cabaret-style performance at the Tea Rose Garden. This gala fundraiser is a major benefit for the organization and this edition is the first since 2019.
