Award-winning San Gabriel Valley Choral Company (SGVCC) invites the public to attend “The Living Voice,” a celebration of contemporary choral music, on March 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the historic St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Monrovia (122 S. California Ave.). The choir will perform works by 20th and 21st century composers, including John Rutter, Simon and Garfunkel, Andrea Clearfield, David Dikau, settings of Langston Hughes by Ricky Ian Gordon and Harry Einhorn’s hypnotic Tibetan chant. SGVCC is also proud to feature pieces by local composers Diana Woolner, Jake Roman, David Rentz and Michael Pawlicki.

SGVCC is conducted by Visiting Artistic Director Dr. David Rentz, associate professor of music at Chaffey College. In addition to heading Chaffey’s choral and vocal music programs, Dr. Rentz supervises programs in choral and orchestral conducting at Claremont Graduate University and serves as the music director of the Orchestra Collective of Orange County and co-conductor of C3LA (Contemporary Choral Collective of Los Angeles). SGVCC is delighted at the opportunity to work with Dr. Rentz, who graciously sustains and augments the vision of Artistic Director Dr. Alexandra Grabarchuk during her sabbatical.

Tickets are $25 for general admission, $20 for seniors and students, and $10 for children under 12. Tickets may be purchased online at or by sending checks payable to “SGVCC” to P.O.
