Prayers and Dances Mailchimp Banner

You are invited to a very special evening of choral music as the L.A. Choral Lab presents PRAYERS & DANCES – a night of auditory meditations and movements. This two-part concert will transform a downtown Los Angeles warehouse into an audio-visual performance space. In act I, PRAYERS, audience members will be enwrapped in music, seated amongst the choristers and the conductor for a sound bath simulation. Act II, DANCES, is an exploration of the interplay of music, light, and color, a stimulating sensory experience with Werkartz’ massive infinity wall as the backdrop.

A no-host bar, food trucks, and local snack vendors will be on site before, during intermission, and after the show. Following the performance, join the members and artistic director of the L.A. Choral Lab, alongside many friends, as we convert the performance space into a dance floor with late night music provided by TRACER.
