La Jolla, Calif. (July 19, 2011) — The La Jolla Symphony & Chorus, (LJS&C) conducted by choral director David Chase, will take to the celebrated stage of Carnegie Hall to perform Benjamin Britten’s “Spring Symphony” on May 27, 2012. Also joining the La Jolla Symphony Chorus in New York City will be the San Diego North Coast Singers children’s choir.
The occasion has sparked outreach to thousands of chorus alumni who have sung with Chase during his thirty-eight-year tenure with the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus (LJS&C).
“We hope to add many of our alumni singers to the roster for this once-in-a-lifetime experience,” says Chase.
The Chorus’s Carnegie Hall debut, presented by Mid-America Productions, follows a performance of the Britten “Spring Symphony” on the LJS&C’s regular concert series in Mandeville Auditorium, UCSD, on May 5-6, 2012.
