WHO WE ARE
SACRA/PROFANA awakens and nurtures enthusiasm for the choral art through vibrant performances and focused education outreach. Our 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. Our second album, A Longing for Christmas, will be release in December following a long COVID delay.
SACRA/PROFANA has accomplished remarkable things in just 12 years including numerous world and U.S. premieres and collaborations with leading regional arts organizations: San Diego Symphony, Art of Élan, San Diego Opera, California Ballet, and many more. SACRA/PROFANA also has performed with many artists of worldwide renown, including the legendary Irish band the Chieftains, producer Carlton Cuse (of ABC's hit show Lost), composer Michael Giacchino (Star Trek), and composer Alan Menken and lyricist Stephen Schwartz in the development of Disney Theatrical's The Hunchback of Notre Dame at La Jolla Playhouse.
After a successful first twelve years, we are just kicked off our 2021-22 Season that includes innovative choral programming, renewed collaborations with local and regional artists/groups, and service to our community through unforgettable performances and education programs that change choral students' lives.
