2010-11 season

Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Mendelssohn.

Their presence on the program heralds masterworks you know you’ll enjoy. And with Jeffrey Kahane at the helm of LACO’s 40 astonishing artists, it’s sure bet that the music-making will be wonderful.

But what makes LACO concerts so special are the riveting, personal moments that take you completely by surprise. You don’t know what it’s going to be or when it’s going to happen. But when it does, it takes your breath away.
