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.

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.
