EVENT INFORMATION

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Music Director Jeffrey Kahane serves as musical “tour guide” for LACO’s annual Discover program, which this season features a special one-night-only exploration of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, “Eroica,” on Saturday, February 22, 2014, 8 pm, at Pasadena’s historic Ambassador Auditorium. The evening is designed to lead patrons to a greater understanding and appreciation of a musical touchstone that forever changed the nature of the symphony and to help them hear the work with “new ears.” Kahane begins by discussing how Beethoven's innovative tour de force revolutionized the symphony form, illustrated by the Orchestra. After intermission, he conducts a performance of the full work, followed by a question and answer segment with the audience.

Kahane, lauded for his "eloquence" (The New York Times), explores a different work each year for LACO's annual Discover concert. According to LA Opening Nights, “Some conductors are born educators, and Jeffrey Kahane is one of them.”

Tickets (starting at $25) are on sale now and may be purchased online at laco.org, by calling LACO at 213 622 7001, or at the venue box office on the night of the concert, if tickets remain. Student rush tickets ($10), based on availability, may be purchased at the box office the day of the concert.
