On September 16, 154 Days ago and Day 1 of the #LACO205 challenge, LACO staff and musicians all received a #LACO205 t-shirt.

This t-shirt represents the Orchestra’s goal to generate a donation a day for the 205 days of our concert season. Its design encapsulates everything about LACO’s largest social media fundraising campaign: optimism, passion and guts.

Personally, #LACO205 deserves more than what this t-shirt offers. Our Orchestra helps make great music possible for thousands in the greater Los Angeles community. The large, bright neon lettering asking supporters to “bring great music to life” is not enough. I need a bolder fashion statement for a cause which one Friend of LACO claims, “brings life to life!” So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and reference a very handy DIY site.

Visit our Facebook page to see pictures of the complete process as well as my final “look.”

Now, it’s up to you. Take the opportunity to help bring great music to life and look good while doing it! Make a $25 online donation this April and receive a #LACO205 t-shirt. Be sure to show off your “new look” at the upcoming Orchestral series concert on April 26 & 27.
