As we ring in the New Year I wanted to take a moment to reflect on LACO’s extraordinary social media giving campaign. Currently on day 78, #LACO205 challengesLACO patrons to generate a donation every day of our season through June (205 days). We have had resounding support and success in keeping our epic giving streak alive. Over the past several months, LACO has featured a vibrant campaign full of engaging content (pictures, videos, articles, blogs), giveaways, prizes, raffles and acknowledgements for our dedicated LACO patrons who contribute through #LACO205. One of our favorite features in our campaign is rewarding our followers at the end of the week for keeping the streak alive by featuring a musician pick: an artist, work, or track that the featured LACOmusicians have been listening to lately and finds particularly exciting. I promise there are some very surprising and enlightening picks from our musicians! Be sure to check out the complete listing of musician picks.

So tonight, when you think about compiling your laundry list of resolutions for 2014, please think about the impactLACO has brought to your life. Whether it’s joy, vibrancy, Mozart, contemplation, or the sheer thrill of experiencing some of the greatest masterpieces of mankind performed by the world-class LACO musicians…be sure to keepLACO as an integral part of your life in the new year.

From all of us at LACO, we wish you good health, continued success, boundless happiness and the promise to keep bringing great music to life!

Sound Investment

Have you ever listened to a favorite symphony and wondered what shaped the composer’s ideas? How the orchestra players reacted upon first reading the new score? How the composer felt as musicians finally gave sonic life to notes on paper?

You can get answers when you commission a new work of music through Sound Investment.
