For 10 of the world's most gifted young adult opera singers, it's the concert -- and opportunity -- of a lifetime. Created by opera superstar Plácido Domingo to discover the best emerging opera singers of our day, Operalia is a prestigious international vocal competition that lets promising singers compete for top honors -- and nearly $200,000 in cash prizes. Out of more than 1,000 applicants from every corner of the globe, only 10 singers make it to this final round of the competition, which takes the form of a concert with Domingo conducting the LA Opera Orchestra. An international panel of judges then announces the winners. Rolex presents this thrilling and emotionally charged concert -- a great way to experience the operatic stars of tomorrow today.

This is the second time I've seen the L.A. Chamber Singers in the last two months. Once again, they were magnificent. Their voices rang out in historic Vibiana's (formerly, the Los Angeles Catholic Archdiocese Cathedral of St. Vibiana) in a way that brought both me and my friend to tears more than once. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!
The grandeur of the Tudor Age is amply displayed in three brilliant settings of the Canticle of Mary, in Robert Parsons’ ground-breaking Great Service written shortly after the first Book of Common Prayer was completed in 1549. Three decades would pass before William Byrd would embark on his own Great Service, written during the first half of the 1580s. Another half century would pass before the last of the great generation of English composers before Purcell, Thomas Tomkins would proffer his own Great Service (c.1630) which is squarely in the Byrd tradition. The program also features a collection of grand motets spanning more than a century, beginning with a remarkably massive work from the Eton Choirbook.
Robert Parsons: Magnificat from The Great Service a 8; Holy Lord God Almighty a 5
William Byrd: Magnificat from The Great Service a 10; Laetentur caeli a 5
Thomas Tomkins: Magnificat from The Great Service a 10
Robert Wylkynson: Salve regina a 9 from the Eton Choirbook
John Sheppard: Aeterne rex altissime a 5
