The Chamber Singers' announcement calls the acoustics inside Vibiana "remarkable."

Next Wednesday, the Los Angeles Chamber Singers and Capella bring their Grammy-winning voices to Vibiana for an evening of Christmas carols from around the world. The group, directed by Peter Rutenberg, played at the former Cathedral in June of 2007 as part of Chorus America's national conference and now returns for a public concert.

From the group's announcement:

Welcome to the sonic splendor of our 2008-2009 Season as we inaugurate a new concert home in Historic Downtown Los Angeles — VIBIANA (formerly St. Vibiana's Cathedral) — augmenting presentations in Brentwood and South Pasadena! The acoustics of Vibiana are remarkable indeed, and we have selected a series of programs that take full advantage of them. Bold colors and textures from the tapestry of choral music's Golden Age — the 16th and early 17th centuries — mark the opening program, enriched by a unique and tempting assemblage of holiday carols. Come bask in glorious music and spine-tingling reverberations, and reawaken the joy of this special season!

Tickets are $25 ($15 for students), and are available by mail, phone or at the door.

"ECHOES OF CHRISTMAS OLD AND NEW" / Los Angeles Chamber Singers and Capella / Wednesday, December 3, 7:30pm / Vibiana, 210 S. Main
