(Los Angeles, CA, March 24, 2022) Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) adds a decidedly contemporary twist to its programming with “CURRENT: Equilibrium,” a visually and aurally immersive program of electro-acoustic classical music, including three world premieres, curated by composer/Artistic Advisor Derrick Skye and led by guest conductor Vincent Womack, on Sunday, April 10, 2022, 5 pm, at Boomtown Brewery in downtown Los Angeles. Featuring Experience Design by Boss Witch Productions and Projection Design by Hsuan-Kuang Hsieh, the concert, for adults 21 and older, explores the concept of tension with the world premieres of Skye’s Pulse Equilibria, James Waterman’s Lift to Return, and a revised version of Conor Brown’s Community Resolve. Additionally, Womack conducts Dai Wei’s Partial Men, with the composer featured on vocals, dedicated to deceased organ donors who extend others’ lives; Nathalie Joachim’s Life Lines, a propulsive, nimble counterpoint of flutes and electronics; Ann Southam’s rhythmic Re-Tuning; and Skye’s Harp Hymnal.
LACO recognizes the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Steinway is the official piano of Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. The Orchestra also receives public funding via grants from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
General admission tickets are $35 and may be purchased online at laco.org or by calling LACO at 213 622 7001 x1. Discounted tickets are also available by phone for seniors 65 years of age and older and for students.
