Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Presents a New LACO At Home Free Livestreamed Program Featuring Selections From 2018 Session Performances, Including Juan Pablo Contreras’ Ángel Mestizo, Caroline Shaw’s Entr’acte and Nina C. Young’s Memento Mori
Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO), ranked among the world’s top musical ensembles, presents a new LACO AT HOME digital program featuring selections from two of the Orchestra’s critically acclaimed SESSION performances, innovative music experiences produced in collaboration with Four Larks that explore classical music’s cutting-edge sounds and challenge traditional concert-going expectations. It will be livestreamed on Friday, May 22, 8 pm (Pacific Time), and subsequently available on demand. The program, subject to change, includes Entr’acte by New York-based composer, vocalist, violinist and producer Caroline Shaw, who cites the music of Franz Joseph Haydn as her inspiration for the work, and Nina C. Young’s Memento Mori, a meditation on life and the perception of time, with musical material drawn from Bach’s The Art of the Fugue, from a live SESSION performance curated by former LACO Creative Advisor Andrew Norman on May 24, 2018 at Angel City Brewery’s Beer Hall in downtown L.A.’s Arts District. It also features Juan Pablo Contreras’ celebratory Ángel Mestizo, for harp, double quintet and percussion, from a live SESSION performance curated by LACO Artist Educator Derrick Spiva Jr on October 8, 2018, at Hauser & Wirth in downtown L.A. LACO AT HOME was introduced in late March of this year to offer special and expanded web content. The livestreamed event is offered free of charge through the generous financial support of LACO donors. All broadcasts can be live-streamed at laco.org/broadcasts and streamed on-demand at laco.org/on-demand.
SESSION, introduced during LACO’s 2017-18 season, has quickly become one of LACO’s signature programs and has been lauded by critics.
