Pomona College Glee Club Tour Concerts

Pomona College Glee Club Tour ConcertsThe Pomona College Glee Club, the college's acclaimed 30-voice chamber ensemble, will perform three local goodwill concerts as a part of this year's tour. Led by Donna M. Di Grazia, the ensemble will offer the benefit concerts between May 15 and 18 in the cities of Santa Barbara, Ventura and Los Angeles for fire and flood relief.


The three concerts are free and open to the public, with a free-will offering:

• Tuesday, 15 May @ 7:30pm at Trinity Episcopal Church – 1500 State St., Santa Barbara

• Wednesday, 16 May @ 7:00 p.m. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church - 3290 Loma Vista Rd., Ventura

• Friday, 18 May @ 8:00 p.m. St. John’s Cathedral - 514 W. Adams Blvd. Los Angeles


The Pomona College Glee Club has traveled throughout the United States and internationally, performing in small communities as well as in high-profile venues such as the National Cathedral in Washington D.C., Grace Cathedral in San Francisco and St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. They bring a varied tour program to the Cathedral, offering selections that span the 16th to 21st centuries. Included on the program will be several Renaissance works by Byrd and Gibbons, 19th-century choral favorites by Brahms and Rheinberger, two spirituals arranged by William Dawson and Moses Hogan, and contemporary works by Elder and Ešenvalds.

In a recent conversation, Dr. Di Grazia shared what a special opportunity it is to offer a series of benefit concerts this year. “In this time when so many of our neighbors have experienced such devastation and loss, we are honored to be able to give a little of ourselves in support of their recovery. We are also very grateful to the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles and the local churches involved for partnering with us as we reach out to these communities.”

The 2018 Pomona College Glee Club tour schedule also includes volunteering at The Midnight Mission on Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles, serving lunch and participating in the “Music With A Mission” series in collaboration with Street Symphony.
