Music of the 16th and 21st centuries will soar through the resonant five-story atrium of Downtown L.A.'s most iconic interior when the "rock stars of Renaissance vocal music" (New York Times) offer an experience "as near to extraterrestrial as you can get" (The Observer, London). Their inspired program includes music of Palestrina, Tavener, Gibbons, Arvo Pärt, and the debut of a new work by the celebrated American choral composer Eric Whitacre, commissioned to celebrate the legendary ensemble's 40th anniversary. "Splendid musicality and gorgeous sound...one of the great live music experiences of our time" (Boston Globe).

Broadway Festival: Before and after the concert, take in an historic photo exhibit at a gallery in The Bradbury, hop on a Da Camera shuttle and visit several of Broadway's historic theaters, then stop by Les Noces du Figaro bistro (Broadway's newest, upscale restaurant) for a complimentary wine & cheese reception running throughout the evening for Da Camera patrons!

This concert and festival are made possible in part by a generous grant from the Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation.

This concert is cosponsored by Don & Zoe Cosgrove and Richard M. Bressler & Cheryl O'Leary.
