Event - Christmas in September – LOS ANGELES, CA – Traveling all the way from Russia and Korea, the Gracias Choir, made up of 70 members including an orchestra, will be bringing their world renowned Christmas Cantata Music Concert to Los Angeles on Wednesday September 23, at the Orpheum Theatre, 842 S. Broadway, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.
Most people think that Christmas only happens in December, but the spirit of Christmas can be experienced during any month. The Gracias Choir sings of thankfulness from their hearts about the love they’ve received through Christ. Through their songs of praise, many listeners experience this same thankfulness in their hearts. This is the true celebration of Christmas.
“True music happens when the heart is liberated, and only then can its true value be fathomed,” Eun Sook Park, Principal Director of the Gracias School of Music.
West Coast Broadway – I went to this theatre in downtown LA for an HBO standup comedy taping and it was really nice. This would be a great place for a movie premiere. I forgot I was in LA and thought I was on Broadway in Manhattan. Then I got outside and remembered I was still in Cali.
Hello, gorgeous: One of L.A.'s most venerable landmarks gets a long-awaited and well-deserved facelift. – Originally operated by the Orpheum vaudeville circuit in Los Angeles in the early 1920s, this magnificent theater officially opened on February 15, 1926. Designed in the Beaux Arts fashion, the theater is one of only three Southern California venues with an original Mighty Wultizer organ. The stage has played host to everyone from a young Judy Garland and comedian Jack Benny, to jazz greats like Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington. In the '60s, musicians such as Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder rocked the house; in the '80s the theater fell into disrepair. Today, after a multimillion-dollar renovation (check out the lobby's white marble walls, French-style chandeliers and intricately detailed mouldings), the space fills its some 2,000 seats with concerts, comedy shows and other perfomances.
