The Burbank Chorale is celebrating its 90th anniversary with one of its most successful years ever, as it prepares to deliver "The Sounding Joy," its holiday concert, on Saturday.
The group, founded in 1920, will be accompanied by the Burbank Chorale Orchestra and the Colburn Children's Choir. The selections will include "The 7 Joys of Christmas," "Schubert's Mass in G," and "The Hallelujah Chorus," among many others.
The volunteer handling all of the group's publicity, Kyrian Corona, expects the 90th to be the most successful event so far.
"We've had so much talent, so much energy, and so many people at the grass-roots level to keep our success going. Every board member has done a superb job, helping us to continue growing, even during the recession," she said. "Our program ad sales broke all records. All 13 board members give 100%, and they have such dedicated, talented, and energetic people working with them."
