CAMA Presents a FREE COMMUNITY CONCERT: CELEBRATING CAMA AT 100 with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, on December 11 at 8:00pm
Founded in 1968 as an artistic outlet for the recording industry's most gifted musicians, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra has spent the ensuing five decades methodically burnishing its reputation as one of the world's top ensembles. A musical force in his own right, "Explosively charismatic" (The New York Times) virtuoso mandolin soloist Avi Avital has emerged as one of the foremost ambassadors for his instrument. This concert will see them team up for an all-Vivaldi program, including two of the Venetian Baroque master's concertos for two violins; of course, no Vivaldi program would be complete without The Four Seasons, his beloved collection of violin concertos, to be performed with Avital on mandolin. Click here for tickets or call the Box Office at (805) 899-2222.
