All museum members, island residents and visitors are invited to a free holiday concert featuring a performance by the Loyola Marymount University Choir. The evening begins with an opportunity to explore the museum's galleries, including the History of Catalina Island and its special exhibitions Crossing Waters: Contemporary Tongva Artists Carrying Pimugna and Tall Tiki Tales: Catalina as a South Seas Island followed by the LMU Choir singing numerous holiday classics sure to get you in the spirit of the season.
The concert performance by nearly 40 choral students will be led by Dr. T.J. Harper, Chair of Music and Director of Choral Activities and takes place in our Schreiner Family Plaza.
The LMU Choruses represent a tradition of artistic excellence with a history that goes back more than 50 years. As stewards of the LMU global vision, the choruses sit in a wonderful position to fully participate in enlivening their creative spirits by participating in performances locally, nationally, and abroad. Under the direction of T.J. Harper, DMA, this tradition continues to be enriched through the participation of a diverse group of LMU students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members from the greater Los Angeles area. The chorus members are committed to serving the greater good through inclusive performance projects that engage and educate their audiences and surrounding communities.
5-6 pm Members of the Patrons Society are invited to meet LMU's Dean of Communication and Fine Arts Dr. Bryant Keith Alexander, Chair of the Music and Director of Choral Activities Dr. T.J. Harper, and the members of the choir for refreshments and light appetizers. (Click here to learn more about becoming a member of the Patrons Society.)
