In Women’s History Month, enjoy the “honey-colored voice” of Sasha Cooke and a world premiere by rising composer Julia Adolphe, whose style is “a neat fusion of shimmering textures and cataclysmic climaxes.” In a welcome return to LACO, Canadian Jon Kimura Parker brings his trademark “liquid tone…gorgeous voicing…and dazzling showmanship” to the romantic Brahms concerto.

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