HISTORY

San Diego’s only year-round professional chorus, SACRA/PROFANA was founded in 2009 by New York native Krishan Oberoi, and has quickly risen to become “San Diego’s go-to choral ensemble” (U-T San Diego). Described by KPBS as “choral music for the iPod generation”, the dynamic choral group has collaborated with the Chieftains, Producer Carlton Cuse (of ABC’s hit show Lost), Japanese composer Nobou Uematsu, and many other prominent creative minds. In addition to their popular crossover work, SACRA/PROFANA has championed challenging choral masterpieces by such composers as Arnold Schoenberg, György Ligeti and Ernst Krenek. The ensemble’s debut album, Elegies & Ecstasies, was released in 2012, and in 2014 SACRA/PROFANA produced the world premiere recording of when we were children by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang, available on the Cantaloupe Music record label.
