Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra this season offers a wide range of musical programs, including six intimate chamber presentations curated by Concertmaster and Director of Chamber Music Margaret Batjer, each featuring a smaller compliment of LACO’s superlative artists who elevate gems familiar and new from the prodigious chamber music repertoire. The first of LACO’s chamber presentations spotlights Baroque concertos for violin, oboe, flute and harpsichord on Saturday, December 4, 2021, 8 pm, at The Huntington’s Rothenberg Hall in San Marino. The program opens with Concerto in A Major for Harpsichord and Strings by Seixas, a preeminent 18th century composer and harpsichord virtuoso, and also includes Vivaldi’s popular Oboe Concerto in F Major, Pergolesi’s lyrical Violin Concerto in B-flat Major, Haydn’s virtuosic String Quartet Op. 1 No. 1, and Telemann’s Concerto in A minor for Violin, Flute, Oboe and Continuo. LACO artists featured are Tereza Stanislav, violin; Jason Issokson, violin; Catherine Baker, flute; Claire Brazeau, oboe; and Patricia Mabee, harpsichord.
The concert celebrates the life of Warner Henry (March 26, 1938 – August 1, 2020) as well as his generous support, along with his wife, Carol, of LACO and the broader classical music community in Los Angeles. An enthusiastic advocate for the arts and particularly passionate about Baroque music, Warner was an inaugural board member of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. He and Carol were also generous donors to LACO for more than four decades, giving more than $3 million in support. Additionally, Warner and Carol were instrumental in the formation of the Los Angeles Opera and underwrote several LA Opera productions over the years. The Henry Fund for Mozart Opera continues to underwrite all LA Opera productions of Mozart. Warner and Carol were both longtime members of the LA Opera Executive Committee, Carol most recently as its former chair. Warner was a crucial early benefactor of the Colburn School, sponsoring several of its students and guiding its growth, remaining on its board. He was a longtime supporter of Camerata Pacifica and Musica Angelica, and in recent years had brought the Los Angeles chamber music community together under the aegis of Chamber Music Los Angeles (CMLA). He was also an inaugural board member of the Los Angeles Master Chorale.
Tickets are $58 and may be purchased online at laco.org or by calling LACO at 213 622 7001 x1. Discounted tickets are also available by phone for seniors 65 years of age and older and for students.
