Salastina + LACO: Lift Every Voice

  • Villa Aurora 520 Paseo Miramar Pacific Palisades, CA, 90272 United States

This season marks Jeffrey Kahane's last as music director of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. The centerpiece of this season is “Lift Every Voice,” a three-week festival in January. The festival includes concerts, conversations and community engagement curated by Kahane to explore themes of tolerance, compassion, cooperation and creativity. It celebrates the power of music to encourage understanding and promote peace. The festival is inspired by the lives of human and civil rights champions Rabbi Joachim Prinz and composer Kurt Weill.

The project highlights the unique ability of music to spark dialogue about challenging moral issues and bring together people from different walks of life to promote cross-cultural interaction and understanding.

Salastina is honored to participate in such a meaningful festival designed by Kahane -- a consummate musician, scholar, and humanitarian.
