In years past the Christmas shows were fun, moving at a pace that kept the audience on a ride of fun throughout the show. this year, the theme seemed to dictate that they started with honoring, in song, each culture they planned to present in the remaining show. after 5-6 songs serious, slow, which cast down the music, and the mood, I found myself wanting to leave! I was surprised at my feelings, and (now I say gratefully) remained in my seat. the one song prior to intermission, and most of the songs after intermission, were fun, beautiful, meaningful, and kept my attention. I loved the last half. But the first part of the show was very draining. Many of my friends felt the same way.
I am glad I was able to buy tickets through Goldstar. I would have felt I overpaid to pay full price for half a good show.
Quotes & Highlights
“an exquisite display of densely textured masculine harmonies.” —Los Angeles Times
The Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles holiday concert isn’t just a celebration of Christmas—it’s also Navidad, Hanukkah and Kwaanza, all rolled into one spectacularly staged and performed variety event. The production will feature entirely new choreography set against a host of holiday favorites, as well as Los Angeles composer Morten Lauridsen’s breathtaking “O Magnum Mysterium” and selections from Conrad Susa’s Christmas in the Southwest.
Also new this season is the Assistant Artistic Director of the chorus, Dominic Gregorio, a doctoral student at the University of Southern California who will be conducting four pieces at the Alex Theatre performances of “Holidays L.A."
“Our shows are always funny and poignant with a hint of magic, and this year’s ‘Holidays L.A.’ is no exception,” says Hywel Sims, Chorus Executive Director.
