The Chorus – Spring 2018

The Verdi Chorus first started performing in 1983 at the old Verdi Ristoranti di Musica in Santa Monica under the direction of soprano, and former Pasadena City College opera program director, Anne Marie Ketchum de la Vega, our Artistic Director. The Verdi Chorus presents four concerts each year as well as other collaborative events, and brings the beauty of grand opera choruses to community audiences. It offers performance opportunities to both aspiring and established singers.
