Members of the highly acclaimed Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) will take the stage at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC) at College of the Canyons for a free community concert featuring a selection of classical music starting 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26.

As part of the PAC's ongoing Stimulus Series concert lineup, LACO musicians Joshua Ranz, clarinet; Roland Kato, viola; and Gavin Martin, piano; will perform on the PAC main stage. 

Regarded for its virtuosic music making and signature style, LACO was originally founded in 1968. Since then, the 40-member orchestra has acquired a reputation as one of the foremost ensembles of its kind in the world - prompting respected music critic Jim Svejda to hail LACO as "America's finest chamber orchestra."

"This will mark the third year in a row that LACO musicians have played the PAC," said Adam Philipson, PAC managing director. "We are happy to continue this unique tradition by offering community members a chance to experience world class chamber music right here in their own backyard."

Admission to the performance is free, with seating available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Music selections for the evening will include:
  • Robert Schumann, "Fantasiestucke," Op. 73 for Clarinet and Piano
  • Max Christian Friedrich Bruch, selections from "8 Pieces," Pp. 83 for Clarinet, Viola and Piano
  • Johannes Brahms, Sonata in F minor Op. 120 No. 1 for Clarinet and Piano

In signature LACO style, musicians will introduce the music from the stage, putting a personal stamp on the evening and inviting audience members into the experience.
