CAMA at Home

In this issue...


While the physical toll of the global pandemic is measured in a mountain of data, the emotional impact of our separation from family, friends, and neighbors is not as obvious. In this week's episode of LA Phil's Sound/Stage, Gustavo Dudamel explores the essence of solitude, from one of Duke Ellington’s classic songs to the U.S. premiere of a work by Thomas Adès—composed specifically for a socially distanced orchestra.

CAMA’s long-time sister organization, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, has created Sound/Stage, a nine-part series that is being streamed for free from the LA Phil’s website, continuing this Friday, November 6 with Episode 7 and through Episode 9 on November 20.  

As CAMA is unable to offer live orchestral concerts this season, we encourage you to join us in viewing this innovative project recently filmed on the vast stage of the beloved Hollywood Bowl, with no audience and with the film crew and musicians masked and safely separated.

CAMA and the LA Phil share a history of being founded in 1919 and have partnered to present world-class music each year in Santa Barbara for over a century. Our pasts and futures are closely tied, and we both look forward to another century of close collaboration. The Sound/Stage project was an expensive endeavor, and CAMA encourages you to support the LA Phil with a contribution to the PLAY YOUR PART fundraising campaign.
