Praised for its definitive performances, the Los Angeles Master Chorale is also committed to recording the choral repertoire. Its esteemed discography includes seven recordings under Gershon, the most recent being the national anthems / the little match girl passion by David Lang on Cantaloupe Records. Albums released under former music director Paul Salamunovich on RCM include the Grammy® Award-nominated Lauridsen: Lux Aeterna, a recording that helped to secure the work’s place as a modern masterpiece. The Master Chorale is featured with Gershon on the soundtracks of many major motion pictures, including Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and is further heard beyond the concert hall via broadcasts by Southern California’s Classical KUSC.
Committed to community engagement and fostering music education in schools, the Los Angeles Master Chorale’s education programs include Voices Within residencies that encourage students to write and perform their own songs, and an expansive Oratorio Project for high school students. The Master Chorale also presents an annual High School Choir Festival, which brings teenagers from around the Southland to perform in Walt Disney Concert Hall. In May 2019 the High School Choir Festival celebrated 30 years as one of the longest-running and wide-reaching arts education programs in Southern California. In July 2018 the Master Chorale presented Big Sing California, the largest group singing event in state history, encompassing a concert in Disney Hall that was broadcast live to venues in five other cities in California and livestreamed online.
