Chamber Singers, along with the Jazz Singers and the  Treble Tones, performed at the Los Angeles Philharmonic Committee’s holiday party at the California Club on Dec. 8.

The singers performed for 45 minutes and their set included all of their songs from the Winter Choral Concert along with songs from the men’s choir and combined numbers usually performed with other choirs.

“We were very well prepared, because our Winter Concert happened to be the next night, and we had been rehearsing all week,” Chamber Singer Greg Lehrhoff ’14 said.

Choral Director Rodger Guerrero introduced each song and its relation to the theme.

The theme for their set was “A Rose in Winter,” the theme from the winter show.

“There was a ton of excitement about this event, because the members of the LA Philharmonic Committee that we performed for are some of the greatest advocates of music in the Los Angeles area, so it was clear that they would judge harshly,” Lehrhoff said.

The positive reactions from the crowd and praises after the performance resonated greatly with Lehrhoff, he said.

“I felt like they could really see not only our drive to succeed, but also our coherence as a group and our positive mentality throughout the whole concert,” he said.
