Escape reality for an hour with a soothing sound bath of vocal harmonies in a reverberant acoustic as the San Fernando Valley Master Chorale takes a musical journey to the most outer reaches of the imagination. Let your mind and heart wander as the music takes you from day to night, from earth to sky, to heaven and beyond, and back again. Come an hour early for a talk-back with the conductors to explore some of the greatest poetry ever written to prepare for the musical settings that take the poetry to even greater heights. Come, listen, and be healed.

This concert is made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
