LA Chamber Orchestra Season Finale


Alex Theatre
216 N. Brand Blvd.
Glendale, CA


Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s (LACO) 2018-19 season concludes with guest conductor Bernard Labadie leading a program of Bach, Handel, Mozart and Haydn featuring noted German lyric soprano Lydia Teuscher on Saturday, May 18, 8 pm, at the Alex Theatre, and Sunday, May 19, 2019, 7 pm, at Royce Hall. Teuscher, heralded for her “bright, pure, agile voice” (Chicago Tribune), performs arias by Handel and Mozart. Labadie also conducts Bach’s joyous Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D Major and wraps the program and LACO’s season with Haydn’s lively Symphony No. 94, “Surprise.”

Labadie, noted for his “expressively shaded performances” (New York Times), is considered one of the world’s preeminent conductors of the Baroque and Classical repertoire, a reputation closely tied to his work with Les Violons du Roy, for which he served as Music Director from its inception until 2016, and La Chapelle de Québec. This season he began a four-year term as Principal Conductor of the Orchestra of St. Luke’s.

Teuscher, who performs in recital and on major concert and opera stages worldwide, has sung leading roles at Glyndebourn and Aix-en-Provence festivals and major German opera houses, among other venues. A frequent collaborator with Labadie, she has toured Canada under his baton and performed with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the Academy of Ancient Music, among an extensive list of credits.

Concert Preludes, pre-concert talks held one hour before curtain and free for ticket holders, provide insights into the program's music and artists.
