Grant Gershon is conductor of the Los Angeles Master Chorale and its "Kiki and David Gindler Music Director." Over the course of the past ten-plus years, he's been guiding more than a hundred voices in the world-renowned Los Angeles institution, giving audiences goosebumps along the way. The hauntingly beautiful melodies of Brahms are paired with Peter Lieberson's beautiful eulogy to his late wife, mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson.

LA Master Chorale at Walt Disney Concert Hall says…

The Los Angeles Master Chorale captures the shared human experience with a pairing of Brahms' sublime Ein Deutsches Requiem and the West Coast premiere of The World in Flower, Peter Lieberson's lyrical and moving message of tolerance written in memory of his wife and muse, famed mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, with whom the Chorale performed Adam's El Niño in Los Angeles and New York.  This compelling and heartfelt program, conducted by Music Director Grant Gershon, is presented in a special matinee performance on Saturday, January 26, 2013, 2 pm, repeating on Sunday, January 27, 2013, 7 pm. Gershon and KUSC’s Alan Chapman participate in ListenUp!, the pre-concert talk two hours prior to each performance. The soloists for the Lieberson piece are Kelley O’Connor, mezzo-soprano, and Brian Mulligan, baritone. Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem features soloists Yulia Van Doren, soprano, and Mulligan.
