The Community Ensemble is made up of Angelenos who are passionate (or just curious) about performing.

Leer En español

After weeks of rehearsal, you’ll join a cast of hundreds on stage and perform with LA Opera's professional singers and orchestra members, conducted by Richard Seaver Music Director James Conlon. And it happens at the exquisite Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, March 19, 2022. 

You don’t have to audition to join the ensemble (but you do need to be 11 or older). Just come ready to challenge yourself, make friends, and have a truly unforgettable experience. Rehearsals run on Sunday afternoons, beginning January 23, 2022. (click "READ MORE" below for details)
