I am very happy and honored to announce that the good folks at the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra have invited me to host the pre-game show, er, the pre-concert discussion with guest conductor Peter Oundjian this coming Sunday evening, October 15 at UCLA’s Royce Hall. We’ll be on stage 6:00 to 6:30pm chatting about the concert and other such things, with some time at the end for questions and answers with the audience. The performance itself starts at 7pm, and it looks awesome:
Stravinsky: Suite from Pulcinella (featuring David Washburn, trumpet)
Lutosławski: Chain 2
Mozart: Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K.550
I hope you’ll join us. If you can’t make it Sunday, please consider attending Saturday night’s concert at the Alex Theatre in Glendale. The concert starts at 8pm, with the pre-concert discussion at 7pm hosted by Brian Lauritzen (classical radio demigod, Green Bay Packer fan, and friend of All is Yar).
BTW: If you want to learn a bit more about Chain 2 before this weekend’s concerts, watch Jennifer Koh’s video below:
