Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s (LACO) 50th Anniversary season concludes with guest conductor Sameer Patel leading the world premiere of Derrick Spiva Jr.’s From Here A Path, the second part of a trilogy for chamber orchestra, and Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 in E-Flat Major, featuring noted cellist and classical music innovator Joshua Roman, on Saturday, May 19, 8 pm, at Glendale’s Alex Theatre, and Sunday, May 20, 2018, 7 pm, at Royce Hall. In addition, Concertmaster Margaret Batjer leads from the first chair both Vivaldi’s Concerto Grosso in D Minor, the first work ever performed when LACO launched 50 years ago, and Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 in E-Flat Major, which wraps the Orchestra’s exploration this season of the composer’s final three symphonies. Spiva, describing his work, says, “From Here A Path draws inspiration from Husago, a West African piece from Ghana's Ewe people that includes drumming, dancing and singing, kaval flute playing from Eastern Europe and elements of Hindustani classical music. The title references the momentum and resistance one gathers to reach a point.”

Cello virtuoso Sheku Kanneh-Mason, the program's previously announced soloist, deferred his United States orchestral debut in order to perform at the Royal Wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms Meghan Markle on May 19 at the request of Ms Markle. He will make his LACO debut at a future date to be announced.

Spiva, a rising African-American composer with a BA from UCLA and an MFA from CalArts, was awarded a composer residency with LACO through New Music USA’s “Music Alive” program for the Orchestra’s 2015-16 season, during which LACO gave the world premiere of his joyous work, Prisms, Cycles, Leaps, influenced by Ghanaian polyrhythms and traditional West African drumming. He is noted for conducting, composing and teaching styles that reflect the multicultural atmosphere of Los Angeles, where he lives and works. Spiva weaves world music across many cultures into his musical vocabulary by using integrative composition techniques that seek common ground between different musical traditions, creating works that break down the boundaries between musical genres. He received the prestigious New Music USA award in both 2010 and 2011 and has served as a teaching artist for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, instructor for the Community Arts Partnership program at CalArts and conductor for the Santa Clarita Valley Youth Orchestra. He studied classical music as a student of Ian Krouse, Paul Chihara, David Rosenboom and Alex Shapiro, while also studying West African music and dance with Kobla Ladzepko; Persian music theory with Pirayeh Pourafar and Houman Pourmehdi; Balkan music theory with Tzvetanka Varimezova; and tala in Hindustani classical music with Swapan Chaudhuri and Aashish Khan.

Concert Preludes, pre-concert talks held one hour before curtain and free for ticket holders, provide insights into the program's music and artists.

Tickets start at $27 and may be purchased online at or by calling LACO at 213 622 7001 x 1. Discounted tickets are also available by phone for seniors 65 years of age and older and groups of 12 or more. College students with valid student ID may purchase discounted tickets ($8), based on availability.
