Singing Nuns

Feb 21, 2010

Monty Python this is not. Rather, it’s a choir of Carmelites from all over the Southland, putting on a rare show for those outside the convent’s walls. The program spans centuries, from old-timey Gregorian Chants to ultramodern contemporary Christian, but has a unifying theme: light. Because, as Mother Regina Marie says, “Times are dark.” The nuns have enlisted some serious help: aiding with directing duties is Grammy-nominated, L.A. Master Chorale member James Drollinger. Musical theatre vets Ralph and Victoria Mohutsky are hosting, while John Gilb will be singing and strumming the ghee-tar. The Carmelites are a musical bunch, and will surely put on quite a show.
