Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra

JAIME MARTÍN, conductor

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1968 as an artistic outlet for the recording industry’s most gifted musicians. Founder and cellist James Arkatov, envisioned an ensemble that would allow these conservatory-trained players to balance studio work and teaching with pure artistic collaboration at the highest level.

Beloved by audiences and praised by critics, the Orchestra is known as a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks and a champion of contemporary composers.

Fall 2019 marked Jaime Martín’s first seasons as Music Director of Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and Chief Conductor of the RTE National Symphony Orchestra in Ireland.

Sheku Kanneh-Mason is Guest Artist-in-Residence at LACO. As one of the brightest young stars on the classical music scene, he became a household name worldwide in May 2018 after performing at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. His performance was greeted with universal excitement after being watched by nearly two billion people globally.
