Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra's popular Baroque Series concludes with a selection of masterworks from the Italian Baroque by Vivaldi, Scarlatti and others led by Concertmaster and Director of Chamber Music Margaret Batjer and featuring virtuosic South Korean-born guitarist JIJI on Saturday, May 4, 2024, 7:30 pm, at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, and Sunday, May 5, 2024, 7:30 pm, at The Huntington's Rothenberg Hall in San Marino.  JIJI is known for her command of diverse repertoire and compelling stage presence.

Principal Cello Andrew Shulman is also a featured soloist on the program that includes the Concerto No. 3 in D minor for Cello, Strings, and Basso Continuo by Leonard Leo, who was considered Domenico Scarlatti's heir apparent, Scarlatti's Sonata in D minor, and Charles Avison/Domenico Scarlatti's Concerto Grosso No. 6 in D major.

Additionally, LACO presents Vivaldi's “Summer” from The Four Seasons and Vivaldi's Concerto in D minor. Two contemporary works inspired by the era round out the program – Caroline Shaw's Stucco & Brocatelle and Max Richter's recomposed version of “Summer” from Vivaldi's Four Seasons. 

Steinway is the official piano of Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.
