New West Symphony Chorus &
Los Robles Master Chorale
The New West Symphony Chorus was formed in 2010 to provide the New West Symphony with a chorus for choral-orchestra repertoire performed on its Masterpiece Series. Members are selected through private audition by New West Symphony Chorus music director Lesley Leighton, who collaborates with and prepares the chorus for New West Symphony music director Marcelo Lehninger.
Ms. Leighton is also artistic director of the Los Robles Master Chorale, a 100-voice auditioned community chorus with its own concert season, which serves as the base for the New West Symphony Chorus. Additional voices are solicited from the community as needed, depending upon the requirements of the repertoire being performed.
