Each season, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra commissions and premieres a new piece of music composed especially to suit its unparalleled musical talents. Christopher Theofanidis has been awarded the 2008-09 Sound Investment commission by Jeffrey Kahane, who was attracted to the composer’s “incredible ear for color.”
November 11 was the first of the three intimate salons where investors had the chance to meet Christopher. After the meet and greet reception, Christopher played excerpts from his past compositions and explained his inspirations, compositional styles and took questions from the investors.
It’s not too late to attend the next two salons or become an investor. As an “investor,” you and a guest will be invited to a series of intimate salons and gain an insider’s view of Christopher’s creative process. Membership also includes a pair of tickets the world premiere of the Sound Investment commissioned piece, Radiant Mind, in May.
