Choral director Roger Wagner went home from the hospital a week after he collapsed with a brain hemorrhage during a concert at the Los Angeles Music Center. Wagner was released from St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica on Saturday morning, said Nancy Gauthier, a nursing supervisor. The 73-year-old founder and director laureate of the Los Angeles Master Chorale was stricken while leading the group in a performance Jan. 31. Wagner founded the Roger Wagner Chorale in Los Angeles in 1947 and was co-founder of the Master Chorale in 1964.
