Join The Contemporary Choral Collective of Los Angeles (C3LA) for the opening concert series of their 2nd full season. AMERICAN BREAKFAST is a program that begs the question: how do we as Americans respond to the constant barrage of violence, racism, environmental devastation, and political incontinence that has become commonplace after the 2016 election? These pieces are not meant to provide concrete answers, but rather to start a dialogue about how we as Americans can progress forward from our present status into a more just future.
The concert will feature pieces by Missy Mazzoli (Vesper Sparrow), Brent Michael Davids (Singing for Water), and Michael Dellaira (USA Stories), as well as pieces from member-composers Matthew Brown (Table Grace), Diana Woolner (Lip Service) and Saunder Choi (American Breakfast).

C3LA is a chamber choir based in Los Angeles that performs works written exclusively within the past 25 years. C3LA has no artistic or executive director—rather, it is collectively run by its members: highly-trained, new-music singers who also perform with the Los Angeles Master Chorale, the Los Angeles Opera Chorus, De Angelis Vocal Ensemble, and many other professional ensembles in Southern California. Many of its members are also conductors and/or composers; 40-50% of each concert’s music is written by members of the ensemble, and each piece is conducted by a different ensemble member.
Modeled after the highly-successful C4: The Choral Composer/Conductor Collective of New York City, C3LA is a unique ensemble dedicated to performing outstanding new choral music; providing a venue for multi-talented singer-composers and singer-conductors to collaborate; and challenging the traditional hierarchical model of our choruses and orchestras.
