Los Angeles is world famous for images: the beach, the Hollywood sign, iconic palm lined streets, but there is so much more. Close your eyes and listen to the sounds of the beach: wind, waves, birds, and palm trees rustling. The ever present noise of traffic: rumbling freeways, aircraft overhead, and perhaps sirens from a car chase. Finally there are the people from many cultures speaking in multitude of accents and languages. All these things have mixed together to create a richness of sound here, the “LA Mosaic”. In this concert LARO will be premiering several commissioned works that represent this mosaic. Chas Warren’s Ascent to the City of Angeles will start the program, and LA Triptych by Glen Shannon gives a musical tour of 3 thriving communities in LA.
