Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO), ranked among the world’s top musical ensembles, marks its 50th anniversary season with more artistic energy and creative impulse coursing through its musical veins than at any time in its history. Beloved by audiences and praised by critics, the Orchestra is known as a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks as well as a champion of contemporary composers. LACO, headquartered in the heart of the country's cultural capital, has been proclaimed “America’s finest chamber orchestra” (Public Radio International), “LA’s most unintimidating chamber music experience” (Los Angeles Magazine), “resplendent” (Los Angeles Times), and “one of the world's great chamber orchestras"(KUSC Classical FM).
Performing throughout greater LA, the Orchestra presents eight Orchestral Series concerts in collaboration with Glendale Arts and CAP UCLA; five Baroque Conversations concerts at downtown LA's Zipper Hall; and three In Focus chamber music concerts in partnership with The Huntington Library and Santa Monica's New Roads School. Long committed to the power of partnership, LACO continues a multi-faceted collaboration with the Inner City Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles. As a key aspect of the Orchestra’s mission to nurture future musicians and composers as well as inspire a love of classical music, LACO presents an array of education and community programs, such as Meet the Music, Community Partners, Campus to Concert Hall and the LACO/USC Thornton Strings Mentorship Program.
