Good news! LACO announced their 2011-2012 season and Jeffrey Kahane's contract has been renewed for two more seasons. Next season highlights include some Golijov, chef and music pairings, Ralph Kirshbaum, and some father-son collaborations with Jeffrey and Gabriel Kahane (composer/vocalist).

If you missed the ticket giveaway, don't fret, you can still get tickets for tonight's concert here. The concert is at 7 PM. Next Sunday is their 22nd annual silent film with a few Charlie Chaplin shorts.

The Brahms Unbound series continues this next weekend Brahms' Tragic Overture, the 2nd Symphony, and a US premiere of a percussion piece by Gubaidulina. Concerts take place on Thursday at 8 PM, Friday at 8 PM (no percussion piece), Saturday at 8 PM, and Sunday at 2 PM, so you have no excuses.
