with the Los Angeles Chamber Choir
Two epic pilgrimages to opposite ends of the earth set the stage for brand new works, including LAMC’s next installment of LA is the World. Shawn Kirchner, LAMC’s Swan Family Composer in Residence, creates his grandest composition to date with Songs of Ascent, a lyrical seven-movement work for voices and strings set to psalms that were sung by pilgrims on their journey to Jerusalem. We then travel farther east for distinguished Korean composer Nack-Kum Paik, who will create a new work for double choir in collaboration with the Los Angeles Chamber Choir.
(3/8) Long before she became known as a Golden Globe-nominated actress, Ringwald was singing. She started performing with her pianist father’s jazz band when she was three and she has never stopped. “I had quite the musical repertoire,” she recalls with a laugh. “It was pretty much traditional jazz but there was some Bessie Smith and Helen Kane, the original Betty Boop.” Talk with Ringwald for even a short amount of time and it’s clear her grasp of jazz and its history comes from a lifelong study of the form and the great singers who inspired her, including Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Blossom Dearie and Susannah McCorkle.
