The Walt Disney Concert Hall may be the happiest place on earth for jazz fans this summer as Grammy-winning vocalist Steve Tyrell, famed cabaret artist Jane Monheit and innovative pianist Jason Moran perform at this benefit for Cal State Long Beach's KJazz radio station. A popular singer-songwriter-producer known for his timeless take on the Great American Songbook, Tyrell had success with his very first album, A New Standard, which spent 90 weeks on the Billboard jazz chart, and was his first of seven Top 5 discs. He's performed at some of the most prestigious clubs in the country, including New York's Blue Note. Grammy-nominated songstress Jane Monheit is a popular jazz and cabaret performer, who's released nine albums, including 2013's The Heart of the Matter, and collaborated with artists like Michael Bublé, Ivan Lins and Terence Blanchard. Pianist Jason Moran currently serves as the Kennedy Center's Artistic Advisor for Jazz, and is famed for mixing funk, rock and hip hop elements into traditional blues and jazz. Learn More

Goldstar contacted the venue to provide us with easily accessible seats as one of us had problems walking. We had great seats. There is a separate parking lot at the Disney Concert Hall. We didn't have to walk outside to go into the building. The garden is open to visitors prior to performance as is the cafe that offers a selection of wonderful meals or snacks( lamb/mashed potatoes etc. about $23.00/ my salad bar plate (mostly lettuce and a bit of tuna) was $13.95 (served on plastic plate). Expensive, I thought, but we enjoyed the food and setting. The last thing I'll mention is that there is a seating area behind the orchestra and those seated there would see the backs of the musicians. Very festive activity. A Christmas must one time or another!
The Los Angeles Master Chorale presented its first Messiah Sing-Along 28 years ago, helping to pioneer the format. An unqualified success since the beginning, the Chorale has made the event an annual holiday tradition. Scores of would-be singers from across the Southland – and those happy to simply observe – converge on Disney Hall to belt out what is no doubt one of the greatest hits of all times.
“It is so much fun to conduct the audience,” says Gershon. “We get some very talented singers in the hall, but lots of folks come just to enjoy the spirit of the evening and Handel’s beautiful music. Anything goes!” Scores are available for sale at the door.
A team of four professional singers from the Chorale performs the solo roles while the rest of the Chorale takes the night off.
For the December 15 Sing-Along, the Chorale members singing the solo roles are Margaurite Mathis-Clark, soprano; Michele Hemmings,alto; James Callon, tenor; and Steve Pence, bass_._
