Season Overview

Welcome to the 2018-2019 Fourteenth Season

Welcome to the fourteenth season of the de Angelis Vocal Ensemble. We have several wonderful programs planned for you this season.

We begin our season with our Annual Holiday Program on December 1, 2018 at 2:00PM at Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano. Guest conductor Charles W. Kamm (director of choirs for the Joint Music Program of Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, and Scripps Colleges) will lead the singers of de Angelis.  This a cappella program features Francis Poulenc’s classic Motets for the Season of Christmas sounding in counterpoint with French Renaissance motets by Compère, Costely, Goudimel, and L’Heriter, as well as recent arrangements of traditional French carols.  Un joyeux Noël à tous!

On May 11, 2019 at 8:00PM at Our Lady Queen of Angels Church in Newport Beach, join members of the de Angelis Vocal Ensemble and the neo-baroque orchestra Kontrapunktus for an evening of Venetian enchantment. Seldom performed masterworks of Antonio Vivaldi that will both enlighten and delight. Our Lady Queen of Angels audiences have enjoined individual performances of each of these ensembles in years past. Now, enjoy them together in one splendid program of music!

Our unique programming relies heavily on the gifts of our patrons. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation with the envelope included in this mailing.

We hope you will join us for season fourteen!
