Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra is excited to announce a new era for Meet the Music in collaboration with our artist-educator and fellow Angeleno, Derrick Spiva Jr.

This year’s agenda will feature a specially curated program of classical and new music, supplemented by a comprehensive curriculum specifically made to prepare and excite students for the concert experience. We are also jump-starting a uniquely immersive and creative initiative, the “Classroom Composers Project,” as an optional addition to the regular curriculum.

Through this redesigned educational outlook, we aim to further specialize MTM in order to better meet the ever-evolving needs of our students. We are excited to have you and your students join us for this reinvigorated season of artistic education!
