[Posted November 27, 2014] Out of change comes opportunity. When the award-winning Santa Monica Chorus lost its long-time rehearsal home upon the retirement of its director, supporter and Uni Tech Arts Department Chair Danna Coonen-Lee asked Principal Eric Davidson if the group could use some space on campus.
The answer was yes, and in return the Chorus is holding its winter concert at Uni’s Stivelman Theater at 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 6. Half of all ticket sales will go to benefit the Uni Student Body Fund, up to $2,000 if all tickets are sold!
A Sweet Adeline-style group, the Santa Monica Chorus is the current regional champion and will represent California in international competitions over the next year. Tickets are a modest $10 (children aged five and under are free) and the event will include the Chorus’s famed quartets Harmonicity, Invitation, Paper Dolls and Ooh La La. And, of course, Santa’s Elves will be on hand, with raffles, refreshment and more holiday fun.
The best way to purchase tickets is online, for which a small service charge is added. There will be only one performance, so don’t miss it!
