November 13, 2021 – May 15, 2022

Music Director Jaime Martín will leap to the podium in November as he unites the Orchestra to welcome us all back to the concert hall. This year, Jaime expands on what makes LACO truly remarkable: an orchestra of soloists.

LACO will perform as usual on both the east and west sides, sticking to the regulars like Royce Hall, Alex Theatre, Zipper Hall and Rothenberg Hall. Some will already be familiar with our newer additions like Ambassador Auditorium and The Broad Stage. However, please note that we will not be following our usual Eastside + Westside double night concerts schedule this season. Most chamber and orchestral concerts have distinct programming and will be performed on only one night unless otherwise noted.
