The Los Angeles Clarinet Choir is grateful for the hospitality of St. Edmund’s Church and Father Woodward. Now in its tenth season, the ensemble was founded in 2005 by renowned Southern California clarinetist and teacher, Margaret Thornhill. The LACC has been featured at the International Clarinet Association ClarinetFest 2007 in Vancouver, Canada; 2010 in Austin, Texas; and in 2011 at CSUN, Los Angeles; the 2010 Vandoren Clarinet Ensemble Festival at UCLA ; and for standing room-only audiences at the South Pasadena Eclectic Music Festival. In 2012, the Choir performed a special concert at the Norton Simon Museum of Art at Pasadena, “Celebrating Sakura: Japanese Music for Clarinet Choir.” They have also performed for schools, churches, libraries and senior centers throughout Southern California, including Westminster Gardens in Duarte, Biola University, Cal Poly Pomona, the Santa Monica and South Pasadena Libraries, the Baldwin Hills School District, Artesia High School in Lakewood, the First AME Church of Pasadena, and the Ovations Arts series of the La Canada Presbyterian Church, among others. The LACC has a strong commitment to performing new original music for this unusual instrumentation, including numerous premieres. Their next concert in the San Gabriel Valley will be at the Neighborhood Unitarian Universalist Church of Pasadena on May 16, 2015, at 8PM.
