The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO), led by music director Jaime Martín, is one of the USA’s foremost orchestras and a leader in presenting wide-ranging repertoire and adventurous commissions. Beloved by audiences, praised by critics and ranked among the world’s top musical ensembles, the orchestra is known as a champion of contemporary composers, with eight ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming, as well as a pre-eminent interpreter of historical masterworks. Based in the heart of the country’s cultural capital, the LACO has been proclaimed ‘America’s finest chamber orchestra’ (Public Radio International), ‘one of the world’s great chamber orchestras’ (KUSC Classical FM), ‘L.A.’s most unintimidating chamber music experience’ (Los Angeles magazine), ‘one of L.A.’s four major classical music institutions’ and ‘resplendent’ (Los Angeles Times). Performing throughout greater Los Angeles, the orchestra presents orchestral, baroque and chamber concerts as well as salon evenings in private spaces and unique experiences that explore classical music’s cutting-edge sounds. Its long history of educational outreach encompasses programmes integral to nurturing future musicians and composers as well as inspiring a love of classical music. Jaime Martín’s predecessors as the LACO’s music director are Sir Neville Marriner, Gerard Schwarz, Iona Brown, Christof Perick and Jeffrey Kahane.
