In March 2018 members of LCC's Concert Choir and Community Choir performed at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, California.
The choir performed with the National Festival Chorus under the direction of Dr. Rene Clausen, a world-renowned composer and choral director. Gina Challed took her choir members to San Francisco for the sole purpose of performing Dr. Rene Clausen's music, under his direction, in the equally renowned venue: Grace Cathedral.
They spent 3 - 4 hours a day in rehearsals, workshopping and learning vocal and choral techniques from a master technician. The choir received in depth interpretive musical direction from the composer himself, which is an extremely rare and unique privilege, working directly with the composer.
