2012-13 season

The suspense. The interaction. The glorious resolution. And you can be a part of it.

When Jeffrey Kahane and the 40 remarkable artists of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra take the stage, their energy is electric. That passion flows into the audience, drawing us all into the joy of their music making.

Join LACO for a fascinating exploration of the concerto and its evolution. You’ll thrill to the virtuosity of the soloists, feel the suspense of dynamic musical interplay and exalt in the communion of sound when the artists play brilliantly together. The season includes masterworks by Mozart, Beethoven, Ravel and Stravinsky, as well as breathtaking soloists Augustin Hadelich, Alisa Weilerstein, Tereza Stanislav, Margaret Batjer, David Shostac and Kenneth Munday. Conductor Helmuth Rilling makes a much anticipated return to LACO stage on Mozart’s birthday.
