Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s elegant annual fundraiser, titled All in LA, features a special concert, silent and live auctions, a sumptuous dinner and a glamorous after party on Saturday, March 25, 2017, 6 pm, at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The evening honors Music Director Jeffrey Kahane and LACO Board Member and former Executive Director Ruth Eliel. Pat and Sandy Gage, who co-chaired LACO’s three most lucrative galas ever, head the event for a fourth time.
All in LA celebrates the diverse city LACO calls home and honors Kahane and Eliel for their creative, tireless and visionary leadership of LACO and their contributions to the Los Angeles arts community. Kahane, recognized around the world for his mastery of diverse repertoire, steps down at the end of the season, concluding an unprecedented and extraordinary 20-year tenure at the Orchestra’s artistic helm, the longest in LACO history. Eliel, a leading Southland arts administrator, is a long-time LACO supporter who served as executive director of the Orchestra for many years. The gala features performances by LACO Concertmaster Margaret Batjer (violin), Assistant Concertmaster Tereza Stanislav (violin), Principal Cello Andrew Shulman (cello), Ray Ushikubo (piano/violin), Joanne Pearce Martin (piano), and Gabriel Kahane (piano/voice) as well as additional LACO musicians and choreography by John Pennington. Suggested attire is cocktail/black-tie optional. Proceeds benefit LACO’s artistic and education activities.
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 the baton of acclaimed conductor and pianist Jeffrey Kahane, hailed by critics as “visionary” and a conductor with “effortless musicality and extraordinary communicative gifts.” Under Kahane’s leadership, the Orchestra maintains its status as a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks and a champion of contemporary composers.
