There’s a Native American saying that goes something like, “It takes a thousand voices to tell a single story.” Thousands of people attend LACO concerts and participate in educational engagement programs each year, and each person has a different experience, a different story to tell. LACO’s story is not just any one experience, it’s all of the experiences. And that’s why we’re asking for your help to tell the story of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.

We recently put together this short video of LACO patrons sharing some of their stories about concerts, engagement programs and how the LA Chamber Orchestra makes “great music personal” for them.


We’re just started collecting these stories and we need lots more “voices” to tell the story of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. Click here to share your story, post on our Facebook page, or tweet @LACOtweets using #LACOstories. It’s the Beginning of a Beautiful Story, and we can’t wait to hear what you have to say!
