Camerata Pacifica will perform both classic and contemporary pieces, including a diverse program of 20th-century music ranging from Shostakovich to Xenakis. Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as "the best chamber music and reason to get out of the house," this celebrated chamber music group cultivates a highly enthused and passionate audience with every performance through their non-traditional approach to the timeless art form.
Camerata Pacifica's artistic director Adrian Spence along with host Suzanna Guzman will discuss the company's unconventional musical techniques and how they are helping to change the face of chamber music on the west coast. Spence has created one of the most noted chamber music ensembles in the United States with the development of a truly dynamic relationship between the audience and the performers.
Called "the best chamber music reason to get out of the house" by the Los Angeles Times -- Camerata Pacifica performs monthly in Los Angeles, San Marino, Ventura and Santa Barbara. Bringing together musicians and audiences from around the world, the chamber music group is committed to musical excellence and exploration, repertoire that reflects the breadth of the chamber music genre and discovering new voices. Camerata Pacifica programs revolve around a core of principal musicians: Catherine Leonard, Richard Yongjae O'Neill, Ani Aznavoorian and Warren Jones. These artists bring incredible depth, skill and passion to their work, energizing and re-energizing both standard and new repertoire. The principals are joined for most programs by a stellar roster of guest artists from all over the world. Many of these guests haevf been with Camerata Pacifica for years, but each season beings new faces as well.
