The Choir of Saint James will begin the evening with Solemn Evensong.
The Choir of Saint James is made up of amateur and professional adult musicians from the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Under the direction of Organist and Choirmaster James Buonemani since 1995, the Choir of Saint James has been honored to serve three times as Westminster Abbey’s choir-in-residence. In 1997, the choir performed the music for the official Los Angeles Memorial to Princess Diana and in 2004, the choir was featured at the National Convention of the American Guild of Organists.
Jean-Baptiste Robin will take the stage at 6:00pm.
“Perfect clarity and virtuosity . . . synonymous with perfection.” – Le Figaro, Paris
With his 2010 appointment as Organist of the Royal Chapel at the Palace of Versailles, Jean-Baptiste Robin was placed in the order of succession with Couperin, Marchand, Daquin, and Balbastre as “court musician” of that world-renowned palace. He has performed recitals in more than 20 European countries, China, Japan, South Korea, Russia, Israel, Canada, and in nearly half of the 50 United States, including the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
For this concert, he is joined by internationally acclaimed trumpeter Romain LeLeu, a Chavalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
