Modern Beauty

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are postponing this program which was originally scheduled for April 5th, 2020. We appreciate your patience during this unprecedented time in our history, and we wish you and your loved ones the very best of health in the coming months.

We look forward to seeing you at the re-scheduled performance of Modern Beauty with Grammy-winning pianist Gloria Cheng.

One of today's most respected and revered interpreters of contemporary repertoire, Gloria Cheng has been lauded in the Washington Post, the New York Times and the LA Weekly for her "breathtaking", "exhilarating" and "broadly expressive" performances. For this concert Gloria teams up with members of the LA Opera Orchestra for a program of favorite chamber music pieces by composers with whom she has collaborated – among them Billy Childs, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Steven Stucky and Gernot Wolfgang.  Please join us for what promises to be a transcendent evening of music!
