Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) travels to The Huntington in San Marino, to give the first live performance in Rothenberg Hall since it, too, was temporarily shut down due to the pandemic. The centerpiece of the program is the original 1915 version of de Falla’s extraordinary sung ballet El amor brujo conducted by Martín and featuring celebrated mezzo soprano, LA’s own Suzanna Guzmán. Martín also leads Debussy’s iconic Prélude à “L’après-midi d’un faune” and the world premiere of Kimani Bridges’ The Flower. Attendance at the concerts will be limited, and LACO will observe all city, county and venue safety protocols. Audience members – comprised of LACO-invited friends and family, vital community partners and others who have helped the Orchestra weather the pandemic – must have proof of vaccination. The program will be recorded for the second season of SummerFest, LACO’s highly regarded digital chamber music series, which will stream weekly beginning in July at no cost on LACO’s YouTube channel.
