LOS ANGELES CHAMBER ORCHESTRA (LACO) ranks among the worlds top musical ensembles. Beloved by audiences and praised by critics, the Orchestra is a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks and, with eight ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming, a champion of contemporary composers. Headquartered in the heart of the country’s cultural capital, LACO has been proclaimed Americas finest chamber orchestra (Public Radio International), LAs most unintimidating chamber music experience (Los Angeles magazine), resplendent (Los Angeles Times), and one of the world’s great chamber orchestras"(KUSC Classical FM).

The digitally native programs, created specifically for streaming and applauded as musically and artistically compelling (Los Angeles Times) have redefined how classical music can be presented in the 21st century (Cultural Attach).
