Vox Femina Los Angeles, the almost 40-member women’s choral ensemble, continues its 15th-anniversary season with From Shakespeare to Shamrocks, a spring concert celebration that brings the English and Irish together in song on St. Patrick’s Day, Saturday, March 17, at Zipper Concert Hall in The Colburn School in downtown LA. Culture Spot readers can win tickets to this concert (see below).
Vox Femina will unite classic Shakespeare sonnets with authentic Irish music sung in Gaelic. From classical works to folk songs, traditions new and old from England, Scotland and Ireland will be celebrated at the event. You may have caught a Vox performance in the past 15 years… perhaps recently at that Mahler No. 8 Symphony of a Thousand concert with 14 other choirs and the Los Angeles Philharmonic on Feb. 4 at the Shrine Auditorium.
Vox Femina Los Angeles is dedicated to the performance of quality choral literature from a world perspective with an emphasis on music by women composers. It is also committed to commissioning new works and raising awareness about issues that affect the family of women.
To be entered to win a pair of tickets, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Tuesday, March 6. Two winners will be selected at random and will be notified by email. Good luck!
The performance starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 to $30 during presale, $35 at the door. Group rates are also available. Zipper Concert Hall at The Colburn School is located at 200 S. Grand Ave. Public parking is available at lots adjacent to the school, and limited street parking is also available within the area. For tickets and additional information, visit www.voxfeminala.org.
