About The Performers
Los Robles Master Chorale (LRMC), led by Artistic Director Lesley Leighton and lauded for its “robust choral tapestry” (Artillery), is one of Southern California’s premier choirs. Celebrating a rich legacy and hailed for its remarkable sound, striking versatility, and commitment to commissioning new choral works, the 100+ voice chorus harnesses the power of music to enrich people of all ages. With repertoire ranging from early music and great choral masterworks to Folk, Contemporary and World music, LRMC presents its own concert series each season and performs with leading music organizations across the Southland in such iconic venues as The Music Center’s Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Hollywood Bowl and U.C.L.A.’s Royce Hall. The chorale recently appeared with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra, and New West Symphony.
Artist Q & A
What is your favorite memory about being in the L.A. County Holiday Celebration and why?
I remember waiting in the lobby area with the other acts right before we went on stage. The energy in the room was electric and uplifting. Seeing the diversity of talent made me so appreciative of where we live.
What do you enjoy the most about performing in general?
I think Plato says it best, "Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything”. Creating and sharing the experience of voices coming together in the joy of song is cathartic.
If you could say one uplifting thing to Los Angeles and the people watching your video now, what would it be?
Our strength is in our diversity, positive spirit, and kindness to one another. And let’s not forget, we live in the City of Angels…what could be better than that?
