LA Phil | Sound/Stage: Episode 4 | October 16, 2020

Friday, October 16 at soundstage 

Episode 4 of SOUND/STAGE
Episode available for streaming starting 10:00AM each Friday


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, October 9 with Episode 3 and through Episode 9 on November 30.  

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.

As you know, 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.

Andra Day, vocalist





ANDRA DAY, vocalist

Soul, jazz, and R&B singer Andra Day has been compared to Billie Holiday and Nina Simone—both among her musical heroes—for her ability to weave a narrative with masterful musicality and raw emotion. This set includes Day’s debut hit “Gold” and a rendition of Simone’s powerful protest anthem “Mississippi Goddam.”
