An Emmy-nominated composer, BENJAMIN WALLFISCH has worked with award-winning directors including Terry Gilliam and Lars von Trier. Wallfisch studied conducting with Sir Charles Mackerras, Vernon Handley and Bruno Weil. He was appointed associate conductor of The English Chamber Orchestra and was assistant conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra. Guest conducting engagements include the London and BBC symphonies, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Philharmonia and Ulster orchestras. Acclaimed by The Strad as "one of the finest accompanists anywhere on the podium," Wallfisch has performed with Dame Felicity Lott, Branford Marsalis and Jean-Yves Thibaudet. He orchestrated and conducted Dario Marianelli's Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-winning score for Atonement. Wallfisch received his Master of Music degree with Distinction in composition from the Royal Academy of Music, and graduated from the Joint Course of the Royal Northern College of Music and the University of Manchester with First Class Honors.

LOS ANGELES CHAMBER ORCHESTRA (LACO), proclaimed "America's finest chamber orchestra" by Public Radio International, has established itself among the world's top musical ensembles. Since 1997, LACO has performed under acclaimed conductor and pianist Jeffrey Kahane, hailed by critics as "visionary" and "a conductor of uncommon intellect, insight and musical integrity." Under Kahane's leadership, the Orchestra maintains its status as a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks and a champion of contemporary composers. During its 44-year history, the Orchestra has made 30 recordings, toured Europe, South America and Japan, performed across North America and garnered seven ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming. LACO presents its Orchestral Series at both the Alex Theatre and Royce Hall, Baroque Conversations at Zipper Hall, Westside Connections chamber music series at The Broad Stage, and an annual Discover concert at Ambassador Auditorium. LACO also presents a Concert Gala, an annual Silent Film screening and several fundraising salons each year.
