Pacific Chorale

This year’s holidays will be particularly poignant and meaningful for Pacific Chorale singers and audience members alike, as members of the Chorale gather in the hushed sanctuary of Our Lady Queen of Angels to sing music embodying the wonder, reverence, and awe of the season. A particular favorite of many audience members, this year for the first time we are expanding “Carols by Candlelight” to two evenings for your enjoyment!
