Pittance Chamber Music
Pittance Chamber Music was created in 2013 by Artistic Director Lisa Sutton, Assistant Concertmaster of the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra.
The original vision of Pittance was to showcase the extraordinary musicians who perform in the opera pit, moving them from the pit to the stage to perform in small ensembles (hence the name Pittance). Since 2013, the ranks of Pittance have been expanded to include vocalists from the LA Opera Chorus and the LA Opera Young Artists Program. By presenting these performers in smaller groups and smaller venues Pittance endeavors to personalize opera, giving audiences a more intimate view of the resident artists who are the heart and soul of the opera company.
