Join us for our final orchestral series broadcast of the season featuring the Orchestra playing Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, “Eroica” under the direction of
Thomas Dausgaard in 2016. Also in store is a chat between Jaime Martín and Sheku Kanneh-Mason, with a special musical offering by Sheku and his sister, Isata Kanneh-Mason. Lastly, we’ll premiere an excerpt from Composer + LACO Artist-Educator Derrick Spiva Jr.’s Prisms, Cycles, Leaps Part III: “To Be a Horizon”.
COVID-19 has had a particularly devastating impact on artists, with nearly all performance and studio work evaporating in the blink of an eye. Yet despite the financial pressures on LACO, we proudly stand behind our artists and have fully compensated LACO musicians for all cancelled concerts this season. We do not yet know what the world will look like as we look ahead to the 2020/21 season, but we know we will need music in our lives, and we will need the miraculous artists who make music possible. So we are making this special broadcast all about supporting the brilliant members of your Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and ask that as you enjoy this broadcast, you also consider making a donation to LACO in support of the artists on screen.
Our goal is to raise $200,000 to directly support the artists of your Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, with 100% of the money raised on May 16 and 17 allocated directly toward compensating LACO musicians.
