From Artistic Director Charlie Kim: "'The Music Between Us - choral sounds from around the world' was derived from one of the pieces being performed on this concert—the first movement from a recently composed piece entitled “This Love Between Us: Prayers for Unity.” The piece in its entirety is seven movements, each movement representing a form of religion present in current day India. The movements sound very different, but the message is the same—we are one. I wanted to expand the concept of that piece into an entire concert, featuring choral arrangements of traditional music from countries around the world."
Charlie Kim is a southern California native and piano virtuoso. He is cross-disciplined in vocal performance and coaching, solo and collaborative piano, conducting, and teaching. Currently, Charlie is a teaching artist, vocal soloist, pianist, and music director for Los Angeles Opera Education and Community Development.
