We invite you to join us for a special, one-of-a-kind outdoor evening at The Huntington to celebrate Los Angeles Children’s Chorus and raise vital support for LACC’s award-winning music education programs and need-based scholarship fund. Each year, these programs inspire and change the lives of more than 350 young people from 150+ schools and 80+ zip codes across Los Angeles.

The 2022 Spring Gala will honor Dr. Ying-Ying Goh, Director of the Pasadena Public Health Department, and include performances from GRAMMY-nominated Artistic Director Fernando Malvar-Ruiz and LACC choristers. The event will also feature emcee Kai Ryssdal, LACC Board Chair and host of public radio’s award-winning Marketplace program, and auctioneer Suzanne Krainock of Inspired Benefit Auctions.

Due to limited venue capacity, only 160 seats (20 tables) are available for purchase.

All proceeds will support LACC’s music education programs and need-based scholarship fund.

LACC will require proof of vaccination against the COVID-19 virus, including a booster shot, for all attendees. Requests for medical exemptions from the booster shot requirement will be considered.
