The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra is busy these days, performing beautiful music this weekend in Glendale and in Westwood, followed up by a performance next Thursday in Santa Monica. The latter concert is part of their "Westside Connections," which presents chamber music with a twist--in lieu of program notes, works are introduced from stage and there is a question-and-answer session. This is one of those unique value-added aspects that makes LACO a premiere orchestra in Los Angeles. In that spirit, we're giving away three pairs of tickets to the concert, which takes place on Thursday, March 25th at the The Broad Stage in Santa Monica. Playwright David Rambo will join the orchestra to explore the connections between composer Jean Sibelius’s musical works and his own creative output. Also on the program is Samuel Barber's insanely beautiful "Summer Music" for Wind Quintet and Leos Janacek's nifty String Quartet No. 2, “Intimate Letters.” Samples of those pieces are below:
