      EVENT DETAILS
      Actor Plays Mozart in LACO's Fun Family Concert "Mozart & Me"

      Music by Mozart, including some works he composed as early as age five, interspersed with lively enactments of the youthful composer’s letters to his father create a vivid picture of this remarkable musical wunderkind at the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s (LACO) final Family Concert of the season, “Mozart & Me,” on Sunday, May 6, 2012, 2 pm, at the Alex Theatre. Jeffrey Bernstein, music director of the Pasadena Master Chorale, is the guest conductor and host of the delightful program, which also features actor Dan Selon portraying the young Mozart. The performance by 10-year-old piano sensation Ray Ushikubo, a student at The Colburn School, includes variations Mozart wrote on an old folk tune recognizable as “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and soprano Krystle Casey and the Pasadena Master Chorale join the Orchestra for some of Mozart’s gorgeous vocal works.

      LACO Family Concerts, recommended for ages 5 to 105, are designed for children with little or no previous musical experience and include a performance prefaced by creative activities to amuse, enrich and engage them. Beginning at 1 pm, families can experience LACO’s “Instrument Petting Zoo,” where youngsters handle and play brass, woodwind and string instruments with the assistance of students from the Pasadena Conservatory of Music, and get creative with fun handcrafts from Kidspace Children’s Museum. In addition, members of Los Angeles Children’s Chorus (LACC) demonstrate basic vocal techniques and invite children to participate in exercises from LACC’s “First Experiences in Singing” classes for the youngest singers.

      Tickets are priced at $12 and $20 and may be purchased online at laco.org or by calling LACO at 213 622 7001. Tickets to individual concerts will also be available at the venue box office on the day of the concert, if tickets remain. Discounted tickets are available by phone for groups of 12 or more.
