Five new commissions by choral composers will be performed at this year’s Golden Bridge choral concert at All Saints’ Episcopal Church Beverly Hills, 504 N. Camden Dr., Sat., Feb. 19 at 8 p.m.

“This year features world premieres by five superstars of the Californian choral world,” said Suzi Digby, conductor and artistic director of the event, Golden Bridge 2022.

Digby, a renowned musician from England, teaches a semester each year at USC’s Thornton School of Music. For the past 8 years (excepting 2021 because of COVID-19), her choral singers have presented a concert of new works related to centuries of British choral tradition.

The program on Feb. 19 will feature 20 area-based singers exploring two golden ages of composition: Renaissance England and modern-day California.

Masterpieces of the Tudor age are reflected in the world premieres, which have been composed by Ola Gjeilo, Moira Smiley, Ian Krouse, Saunder Choi and Nick Strimple.

California Poet Laureate Dana Gioia will introduce the program. A reception will follow.

Tickets are $25. For more information, visit
