Episode 28 Dr. Christopher Gravis & Andrea Zomorodian

Dr. Christopher Gravis, Director of Choral Activities, Cal State LA, and Canon for Music Ministry and Cathedral Arts at St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral, Los Angeles.  Andrea Zomorodian, Soprano with LA Master Chorale, Pacific Chorale, Bach Collegium San Diego, Golden Bridge Consort, The Choir of St. James, and many more ensembles.  

A great interview with Southern California’s primo musical couple.  Christopher and Andrea are far from the normal musical couple as they are part of almost every aspect of classical music in the Los Angeles area. A Cathedral Music Director and University Professor married to certainly one of the finest (and busiest) sopranos anywhere.  These two extraordinary musicians speak about their very exciting lives, and all of the many projects in which they are involved.  Even a bit about how they met and their spectacular wedding at St. James in the City, which just happened to include a surprise wedding gift!  Tune in for a fascinating look into the lives of this sensational couple who make splendid music for all of us who live in Southern California.
