Lex De Azevedo's Gloria Makes West Coast Debut In A Benefit Performance

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Ettie Lee Youth &Family Services will receive some welcomed support when GLORIA, an original oratorio about the birth of Christ by composer Lex de Azevedo, makes its west coast debut at the Los Angeles Music Center at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on Friday, Dec.1st, at 8 PM.

The first volume in a musical series by Azevedo about the life of Christ, GLORIA recounts musically the events surrounding Jesus' birth, as chronicled in the King James Version of the Bible.

The performance will feature the California Philharmonic Orchestra, The Southern California Mormon Choir and Azevedo's own Millennium Choir.

GLORIA made history last year in its world debut performance at The Citadel, Tower of David Museum, within the old city of Jerusalem; the event was later televised on Utah's NBC affiliate, KSL-TV, and Hallmark's Odyssey Channel. The Jerusalem performance will make its public television debut on November 28th on Detroit Public Television, considered an opinion leader among PBS stations.

Ettie Lee Youth &Family Services was founded 50 years ago when Miss Ettie Lee, a Los Angeles High School teacher, opened the first group home in America. Today, they help over 1,200 young people and families each year through nine residential care centers, a foster family agency, an adolescent substance abuse treatment program, and a broad range of community based programs.
