Language of Love


Pacific Chorale’s outstanding chamber choir will present a romantic evening of love songs in a mix of Broadway’s best loved music, vocal jazz, inspiring choral music, and cabaret-style solos.

Enjoy the passionate harmonies of Morten Lauridsen’s spectacular Les Chansons des Roses in a rare, complete performance of his masterful setting of Rilke’s exquisite love poetry.
