A Word From the Artistic Director/Conductor

As we continue our 2022-23 season, we welcome you to hear about all the great things we're doing on many fronts! I am thrilled to continue to help make great things happen as we bring back many of the wonderful activities and programs of the past and grow our enrollment! In March, 2022, we returned from a 2-year hiatus with 15 enrolled building to 35 for that Spring, 41 in Winter, and we now sit at 47 and continue to add singers! After an amazing Holiday Program, we are thrilled to celebrate our partnership with our sister city, Kashiwa, Japan, at the Sister Cities Friendship Festival on February 18, 2023, at 7 pm. Broadway in Torrance will be our big concert on April 22, 2023.

-Dr. Edward Trimis, Artistic Director/Conductor
