Set in out of the ordinary locales, SESSION is a unique experience in which the Orchestra’s musicians join forces with compelling composers. Each program is designed to fit the unique properties of a space and test ideas about the relationship between performers and audience.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Creative Advisor Andrew Norman kicked off the inaugural SESSION on May 24th, 2018 at Angel City Brewery. The eclectic program featured site-specific visual concepts staged by art collective @fourlarks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Composer and LACO Artist Educator @derrickspivajr leads the next SESSION on October 4, 2018 at Hauser & Wirth. Located in the heart of the Downtown Arts District, Hauser & Wirth is an internationally renowned gallery that fosters public dialogue through arts activities. Derrick will be injecting his global perspective on cultural and musical practices into this collaboration, challenging traditional concert-going expectations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
“SESSION is designed to appeal to those culturally curious souls who may be unfamiliar with classical music,”says Executive Director Scott Harrison,
“as well as concertgoers intrigued by the ways in which the genre can defy expectations.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
SESSION continues in Winter 2019 with composer Matthias Pintscher and in Spring 2019 with conductor/composer Christopher Rountree.

Tonight at @angelcitybeer Creative Advisor @andrewnorman curates classical music’s cutting-edge sounds and challenges traditional concert-going expectations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀

Excited to announce that the residency program is welcoming cellist @joshuaromancello for a slate of community events in advance of his Orchestral Series performance with LACO. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
Aside from being an amazing musician, composer and @tedfellow, Joshua serves on the board of @streetsymph, a grassroots community of over 70 world class musicians that present regular monthly programs at Skid Row. The Orchestra is thrilled to be joining forces with such a world class musician while simultaneously partnering with a visionary organization like Street Symphony. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
LACO’s guest artist residency program puts Angelenos front and center for intimate and accessible musical experiences with world class musicians. The dates and locations of Joshua’s free community performances will be announced in the coming days. Stay tuned. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀

🎂 Happy birthday to composer @daifujikura, born on this day in 1977, Dai was 15 when he moved to the UK to study at Dover College. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
Dai’s initial ambition was to compose music for cinema and his extensive knowledge of cinematography gives his music a fresh, individual voice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
Last weekend, guest conductor Karina Canellakis led Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra in a program featuring the U.S. premiere of Dai’s “Secret Forest.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
Having received numerous international co-commissions, Dai’s music has been performed in Europe, Asia, and North and South America. He recently held the composer-in-residence position at Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra. He has received two @bbc_proms commissions, his “Double Bass Concerto” was premiered by the @london.sinfonietta, and in 2013 the @bbcsymphonyorchestra gave the UK premiere of his "Atom.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
Dai also has strong connections to the experimental pop/jazz/improvisation world. His co-composition with @skmtgram, peripheral movement for electronics, premiered in Hakuju Hall in Japan in 2013, and his collaborative works with David Sylvian were recorded for Sylvian's album Died in the Wool. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
Dai Fujikura is published by Ricordi Berlin.

Principal bassoon Kenneth Munday will not be standing onstage Saturday at the @alextheatre during the U.S. premiere of the @daifujikura work, “Secret Forest.” Instead, Kenneth will be performing in the center of the auditorium, surrounded by a “forest” of brass and woodwinds, while guest conductor Karina Canellakis and the rest of the Orchestra play from the stage.
Kenneth has been a member of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra since 1976. Appointed by Sir Neville Marriner, he has appeared as soloist with the Orchestra on numerous occasions, often in white tie and tails, sometimes in the dark with silent film, and once in an Elvis costume performing the @michaelkdaugherty work, “Dead Elvis”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
