Making great music personal.

That’s the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s tagline. It appears on our brochures, our website and on every ticket to every performance. But LACO’s commitment to making great music personal is more than a slogan; it’s a way of life for us.

Whether it’s the opportunity to meet the musicians at the party after a concert, a special invitation to attend a rehearsal, or a free music education program for LAUSDstudents, LACO strives to help you discover what makes the music great.

This past season, we’ve been interviewing some LACOpatrons and asking how the Orchestra makes great music personal for them. Take a moment to watch our latest YouTube Video and share how LACO makes great music personal for you at laco.org/stories.

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.
