Immediately following Pacific Chorale’s season finale was our 2023 Gala at the Avenue of the Arts Hotel in Costa Mesa. It was truly a joy to be able to celebrate the close of our season, the lifetime accomplishments of Richard Stein, and our biggest fundraising night of the year.

Because of the incredible generosity of our gala sponsors and guests, Pacific Chorale raised nearly $250,000 at the 2023 Gala which will make an incredible impact in advancing our award-winning choral performances and life-changing education programs. We thank everyone involved for helping to make this evening such a spectacular night.
