Next Sunday, January 10, from 1pm to 5pm, KGIL “Retro 1260” will present a special live broadcast showcasing one of our city’s great musical treasures, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.
Hosted by “K-Mozart” veteran John Santana, the program will feature LACO recordings ranging from Bach masterpieces to the gorgeous melodies of Dvořák and Beethoven, interviews with music director Jeffrey Kahane and concertmaster Margaret Batjer, live in-studio discussions with executive director Andrea Laguni, and more.
Formed in 1968 as an artistic outlet for the crème de la crème of L.A.’s studio musicians with the revered Sir Neville Marriner as its first music director, the Orchestra is described by the Los Angeles Times as “a shining feature in L.A.’s cultural landscape.”
Tune in for some glorious classical music, insider info on the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s concert series and community engagement activities, and find out how LACO is making great music personal.
KGIL “Retro 1260” broadcasts music of the Great American Songbook in Los Angeles at 1260 AM and 105.1 FM HD3, and online at www.retro1260.com.
The LACO program will also be simulcast on “K-Mozart,” which has returned to FM radio at 105.1 HD2, presenting commercial-free classical music 24/7 with no subscription fees.
