A Selective Guide to the Arts in Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Master Chorale adds warm musical cheer to the holiday season with “Rejoice! Ceremony of Carols,” featuring Music Director Grant Gershon conducting four seasonal classics — Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols; Respighi’s beautiful Laud to the Nativity, filled with the rich imagery of the nativity story; Stephen Paulus’ Christmas Dances; and selections from Vaughan Williams’ Nine Carols for Men’s Voices on Sunday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m. at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

The annual Rejoice! concert, hailed as “a grand display of choral magic” and an “enchanting way to embrace the arriving holiday season” (International Review of Music), is part of the noted countywide “Britten 100/LA: A Celebration” curated by LA Opera. Gershon and KUSC Host Alan Chapman participate in ListenUp!, the pre-concert talk at 6 p.m., free to ticket holders.
