50 Years of LACO concludes poignantly with Vivaldi’s Concerto Grosso No. 11 in D Minor, the first work LACO ever performed, 50 years ago.

The Orchestra also performs Derrick Spiva’s From Here A Path, the second part of a trilogy for chamber orchestra inspired by LACO, and Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 in E-Flat Major, featuring cello virtuoso Joshua Roman.

Joshua Roman is the 2018 Shaheen & Anil Nanji Guest Artist-in-ResidenceLACO’s guest artist residency program strives to provide all Angelenos access to intimate and accessible musical experiences with world class musicians. 

Aside from being a world class musician, composer and TED fellow, Joshua serves on the board of Street Symphony, a grassroots community of over 70 world class musicians that present regular monthly programs at Skid Row. The Orchestra is excited to be joining forces with Joshua as well as partnering with Street Symphony to amplify their mission and message during his week-long residency.

The final work on the program is Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 in E-Flat Major, which also wraps “Mozart in Focus,” LACO’s exploration this season of the composer’s final three symphonies. 

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.
