Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s (LACO) continues its “Westside Connections” series, which this season pairs novelists and musicians for a fascinating exploration of the relationship between “Music & Story,” with author Jane Hamilton at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 7, at The Broad Stage, 11th Street and Santa Monica Boulevard.
Hamilton joins guest soprano Stacey Tappan and LACO artists as they explore music in which composers reveal their own stories.
LACO Concertmaster Margaret Batjer, currently celebrating her 15th anniversary with the orchestra, curates and hosts the series, which showcases the virtuoso talent of LACO musicians and illustrates the myriad ways music touches other artistic disciplines, society and our lives.
Hamilton’s international bestsellers include “The Book of Ruth,” recipient of the PEN/Hemingway Foundation Award for best first novel and selected for the prestigious Oprah’s Book Club, and “A Map of the World.”
Featured LACO artists will include Roland Kato, principal viola, and Victoria Miskolczy, associate principal viola; Andrew Shulman, principal cello; Joshua Ranz, principal clarinet; Jennifer Munday, Joel Pargman and Susan Rishik, violins; Robert Brophy, viola; and Giovanna M. Clayton and Trevor Handy, cellos.
Tickets ($50) are available by calling (213) 622-7001 ext. 1 or by visiting laco.org.
