Pasadena Chorale will partner with Los Angeles Children’s Chorus and Yale Glee Club to raise funds for Urban Voices Project, a choir composed of currently and formerly unhoused artists of Los Angeles.

“Together in Song: A Gathering of Choral Music” will take place at the First United Methodist Church in Pasadena, Calif. on Wednesday, May 25 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are free and can be reserved at pasadenachorale.org, but a donation made to Urban Voices Project is strongly encouraged.
“Urban Voices Project does such important work by brilliantly connecting singing with community and wellness,” said Pasadena Chorale Artistic Director Jeffrey Bernstein. “We are deeply impressed by Urban Voices and the example they give of what the arts can offer, and we’re proud and happy to support their work.” Bernstein continued, “On a personal note, I was an assistant conductor of the Yale Glee Club some thirty years ago, and it’s exciting to share the stage with them again!”
The three choral ensembles, the Pasadena Chorale, Los Angeles Children’s Chorus and Yale Glee Club, will come together for one night to perform choral selections that represent unity and inclusion. The concert is the only LA appearance by the Yale Glee Club on their tour of California.
Urban Voices Project brings the healing power of music directly to individuals marginalized by homelessness, mental health issues, and unemployment in the Greater Los Angeles area. Funds raised from this benefit concert will help Urban Voices Project orchestrate a hybrid return to in-person programming, fortify its organizational capacity, and continue to strengthen its efforts around diversity, equity, and inclusion.
