La Vang Wines
La Vang Wine Company is a Non-Profit Wine company that fundraises money for various charities and projects.
Our company was inspired by the appearance of Mother Mary in La Vang, Vietnam, in 1798. During this time, Vietnamese Catholics were being persecuted for their faith leading many of them to flee into the La Vang jungle and pray the rosary every night. One night, Mother Mary, holding the infant Jesus consoled them, reminded them of her intercession, and even showed them an indigenous fern that helped treat their physical ailments.

Based in Santa Ana, California, the Chorus is comprised of over 100 boys ages 8 – 15 drawn from throughout Southern California. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Wesley Martin, a veteran of Hungary’s renowned Kodaly Institute, the Chorus provides boys with comprehensive musical training and unsurpassed performance and touring opportunities.
Born in Colmar, France, 25-year-old soprano Solène Le Van has been recognized as “nothing short of amazing” (Norman Lebrecht, SlippedDisc), a “peerless soloist” (Rafael de Acha, All About the Arts), and “an enrichment for every opera house" (Boris Anifantakis, Staatsoper Unter den Linden Berlin).
Following an acclaimed debut in the role of Marie in La fille du régiment in Los Angeles with Opera Buffs in Los Angeles, Le Van made European concert debuts at the Musikverein in Vienna and the Markgräfliches Opernhaus in Bayreuth, singing arias from Lucia di Lammermoor and La fille du régiment, ensembles from Rigoletto, and Act III of Tannhäuser as Elisabeth. Ms. Le Van’s other engagements with orchestra last fall included gala concerts with the Johann Strauss Orchester Wiesbaden and the Virtuosi Brunensis Orchestra, National Theater Brno (Czech Republic). As the Grand Prize Winner of the opera division in the Classicalia - Global Televised Music Competition, her performance in the finals will be broadcast internationally on PBS.
