UC Choral Ensembles joins Baltimore Symphony Orchestra for Richard Einhorn's "Voices of Light" featuring the 1928 silent film masterpiece, "The Passion of Joan of Arc"

The LA staff of Hunter Communications wishes best of luck to our favorite university performing arts department as they provide the choral component to a special performance tonight on the campus of UC Berkeley.

If you not familiar with the incredible piece, the Huffington Post did a nice writeup a week ago:

Little Monster Mash
Can Lady Gaga help Exxon Mobil crack social media?

The article discusses tech start-up Backplane's first product, a web community for Lady Gaga called (after the pop star's pet name for her fans).  

Excerpt: "The goal is to create a one-stop shop for everything Gaga. Fans will be able to download her music, buy tickets for her shows and chat with each other (and even, perhaps, with the singer herself). It will feature “social ticketing”, which will make it easy for fans to find concert seats near their friends and even start conversations beforehand with strangers they will be sitting with."
