Supporting the Art of Choral Music

Welcome to

Vocal Arts Ensemble

The name Meritáge is our play on the vintner’s term meritage which refers to the blending of fine wines - hence, in musical terms, the “blending of fine voices” with a diverse mixture of repertoire and styles.

  Meritáge Vocal Arts Ensemble
is comprised of approximately 45 skilled and auditioned singers under the direction of Dr. Cristian Grases.

The Passing of the Baton!

For over three decades, Dr. Sheridan Ball has shared his passion and gifts for great music—not only with the finest Southern California musicians—but throughout the world in numerous cultural tours and musical exchanges from Carnegie Hall to Sydney Opera House.  Audiences everywhere have always responded with enthusiastic acclaim.  Summer 2015, Dr. Ball announced his retirement as Founding Artistic Director of Meritage Vocal Arts Ensemble, but working with the group’s board of directors, searched far and wide for just the right person to pass the baton and continue the Meritage Vocal Art legacy. 

And so, we are pleased to announce that Dr. Cristian Grases has been named Meritage Vocal Art’s new Artistic Director.  Dr. Grases also serves as USC’s Assistant Professor in Choral Music, is an accomplished author and composer, and an exciting “next-gen” leader promoting the choral artform. The heritage of Meritage’s wonderful music-making continues!
