Choral Concert to Feature Grammy-Winning Sopranos

Choral and chamber music aficionados throughout Southern California will have a rare chance on Saturday, May 20, to enjoy two of the world’s leading and Grammy-winning sopranos for a concert at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Glendale at 6 p.m.
Producer David Brunt said sopranos Hila Plitmann and Sangeeta Kaur are scheduled to appear with the Sterling Ensemble and other special guests on stage for “The Tide: A Choral Journey Through the Ebb and Flow of Life, and Love.”
Brunt said the choral event promises “an inspiring and enchanted evening. It will be a choral journey through the ebb and flow of life — and love.”
Pianist and composer Danae Vlasse, who created the “Mythologies” album that Plitmann and Kaur contributed to, is co-producing the event. Vlasse was awarded a Grammy for her performance on the album.
Brunt said it “is always magical to have Hila and Sangeeta on the same stage. We are very pleased to announce they will be performing with the Sterling Ensemble under the direction of Michelle Jensen.”
Both Plitmann and Kaur were awarded Grammy Awards in 2022 for their work on Vlasse’s “Mythologies” album. For Kaur, it was her first Grammy Award, and for Plitmann, it was her second.
Special guest Kavita Baliga will also perform, and the entire ensemble will be accompanied by famed concert pianist Robert Thies and Mark Bassett on cello.
“This will be a concert by living composers,” Brunt said, “featuring Dale Trumbore, Eric Whitacre, Danae Vlasse, Gabrielle Rosse, Lolita Ritmanis, Maria Newman, Sharon Farber, Morten Lauridsen, Reena Esmail, Katherine Dudney and Jake Runstad.”
The Sterling Ensemble is a diverse community of singers performing traditional and modern choral works in Los Angeles. Their latest release, “Into the Light,” has brought much critical acclaim to the group and to its collaborator, composer Richard Burchard.
Tickets are $45 and are available at givebutter.com/TheTide.

First published in the April 15 print issue of the Glendale News-Press.
