Looking back at the season just completed, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the support Pacific Chorale has received! Your demonstrated faith in our mission inspires us to a continued commitment to artistic excellence. Next season we provide a variety of programming that celebrates our choral tradition while introducing bold new talents and presenting under-represented voices, honoring our entire community.

The music of the 2023-2024 season immerses us in stories, asks questions, and opens hard, important conversations: About the silencing of women’s voices (The Passion of Joan of Arc). About the beauty and fragility of our planet and its creatures (Mass for the Endangered). About the tenuous place of the Jewish people among the nations (Chichester Psalms). All the while carried on music filled with emotion and exuberance, bringing us hope and inspiring us to dream and build a better, kinder, more beautiful world for ourselves and generations to come.

Nestled among these concerts are opportunities to celebrate, too! Audience-favorite holiday concerts Carols by Candlelight and Tis the Season! will return to delight us once again. And in addition, a romantic evening of love songs with a mix of inspiring choral music, Broadway, jazz, and cabaret-style solos anchored around Morten Lauridsen’s passionate Les Chansons des Roses.

We are so blessed to share the world of choral music with you, and look forward to seeing you at an upcoming performance!

With love,

Robert Istad
