Members of the California State University, Long Beach Cole Conservatory Chamber Choir will join the Rolling Stones in their appearance Friday, May 3, at Staples Center.

Dr. Jonathan Talbert, director of Choral, Vocal and Opera Studies, is rehearsing the choir and will conduct them on stage with the Stones.

This is the second non-traditional performance of the year for the Chamber Choir. In March, they appeared with composer Eric Whitacre and singers from 30 other countries via Skype as part of one of the TED Talks. The two YouTube videos of Whitacre’s appearance have received more than 380,000 views.

The Chamber Choir joins the Cole Conservancy Orchestra and combined choirs for a performance of Mozart’s Requiem at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 4, at the Carpenter Center, 6200 Atherton St. For tickets, call 985-7000 or visit www.csulb.edu/coleconservatory.
