Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra performs the complete cycle of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos led from the first chair by esteemed LACO concertmaster Margaret Batjer and featuring special guest Mahan Esfahani on harpsichord in his Orchestral Series debut. The Brandenburg Concertos remain evergreen and present an opportunity to showcase the immense talents of many of LACO’s virtuoso principals, notably newly appointed principal flute Joachim Becerra Thomsen and newly appointed principal oboe Claire Brazeau. This LACO-signature repertoire has been previously performed by the Orchestra an astonishing 52 times, more often than any other work in its repertoire.

Concert Preludes are fun, informative and free to all ticket holders.

Join us one hour before each concert in the theatre. Some Preludes feature LIVE performances of short chamber works. All provide interesting insights into the music and the artists.


Single tickets start at $27.
Call the box office at 213 622 7001 × 1, Monday – Friday 9 am to 5 pm, on concert Saturdays from noon to 4 pm and concert Sundays from noon until 3 pm. The box office is closed on public holidays.

Program, artists and ticket prices subject to change.
