The Choruses Rang Out with Fabulous Splendor

Mark Swed, music critic for the Los Angeles Times, wrote a triumphant review of Britten’s War Requiem performance at Disney Hall on Monday, November 23. “The choruses rang out with fabulous splendor,” he wrote of the combined forces from USC, Cal State Long Beach, Cal State Fullerton, Chapman University Singers, Los Angeles Children’s Chorus, and the 
New Zealand Youth Choir.

Swed added that the had wished President Obama, who was in Los Angeles during the performance, had heard the “exalted young performers offering hope for the future of idealism and even, some distant day, peace.”
