“Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.” – Confucius

Pleasure. Joy. Happiness. Peace. These are the words that we hear all the time that LACO concerts bring to the lives of our fans and supporters. From the subscribers, volunteers and donors, to the more than 3,000 Los Angeles Unified School District students, and thousands who hear LACO radio broadcasts, LACO performances touch each member of our community differently.

The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra brings great music to life, and this fall, we’re asking what that great music brings to your life.

Follow all that LACO brings to the lives of music lovers in Southern California and beyond at @LACOtweets. You can also help keep the epic giving streak alive! Our challenge of a gift every day for 205 days is going strong in its second month. Choose a day, and make a gift – keep track of the streak and see where we are with #LACO205.

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.
