Tchaikovsky Serenade

Virtual Event

Premiered June 4

Close Quarters Season One Finale! Guest conductor Grant Gershon and the musicians of LACO wrap up the 2020/2021 season in spectacular fashion with Tchaikovsky’s beloved Serenade for Strings. Fully embracing the rich grandeur of this enduring masterpiece, we have assembled the largest ensemble of LACO musicians since February 2020, closing this extraordinary season with a note of joy and optimism. This culminating episode of Close Quarters is laced with a poignant visual tone poem that reflects the diverse artistic family that LACO built through the series and chronicles Los Angeles’ emergence from the global pandemic

LACO’s new premium streaming series – returning March 12 – presents a new avenue for classical music and a unique look at what the future can hold in balancing music, art and movement.

Close Quarters features classical music performances set to images and art created and processed in a first-of-its-kind digital studio at Wilhardt + Naud. Music Director Jaime Martín and Director and Designer James Darrah seek to create a digital series that celebrates collaboration in an age of isolation.
