LACO violinist Maia Jasper, who is co-founder & artistic director of Salastina Music Society, leads a chamber music program of Weill, Britten and Ranjbaran. The concert is presented at Villa Aurora, an artists’ residency and place for international cultural encounters, which stands as a memorial to all the artists and intellectuals who found refuge from Nazi persecution and had tremendous impact on the cultural life of the United States’ West Coast.
Lift Every Voice is LACO’s three-week exploration of courage and compassion through music, inspired by the lives and legacies of courageous émigrés Kurt Weill and Rabbi Joachim Prinz, and Martin Luther King, Jr., who all championed civil rights in America and injustice everywhere.
