Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra: making great music personal

westside connections

LA influential: How does the LA experience influence creative output? LACO’s original chamber music series with a twist, curated by concertmaster Margaret Batjer, invites three prominent artists to share their perspectives on how living or working in our City of Angels has shaped their artistic life and how, in turn, their artistic output has defined the cultural landscape of Los Angeles.

Following the Orchestra’s signature “conversations” style, the musicians introduce the pieces from the stage. There is no intermission.

The 3-concert series takes place at the new Ann and Jerry Moss Theater at New Roads School located in The Herb Albert Educational Village in Santa Monica.

Single tickets are $50. Call Andrew or Carrie at 213 622 7001 × 1.

Westside Connections is supported in part by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation and the Faucett Catalyst Fund.
