Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Presents Its “2022 Gala Celebration: Simple Gifts”

April 29, 2022 @ 6:00 PM - 11:00 PM


Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) hosts its “2022 Gala Celebration: Simple Gifts” honoring esteemed nine-time Oscar-nominated film composer James Newton Howard (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, The Hunger Games franchise, Nightcrawler, Maleficent and The Bourne Legacy) and celebrating the musicians of LACO on Friday, April 29, 2022, 6:00 pm, at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills.

The in-person black-tie (preferred) event includes a festive cocktail reception, elegant dinner and engaging live musical program featuring LACO Music Director Jaime Martín conducting the Orchestra in Copland’s beloved classic, Appalachian Spring, as well as special arrangements of two works from two film scores by Howard, “The Wedding” from Wyatt Earp directed by Lawrence Kasdan, and “A Man & His Beasts Redux,” a suite from the Fantastic Beasts films directed by David Yates. Multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban will introduce Howard at the gala.

Proceeds from the gala, as well as a virtual auction, which begins online on April 25 and concludes at the event, benefit the concert performances and educational initiatives of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. Among the virtual auction items is a private meet and greet with Howard and a one-hour tour of his Santa Monica studio for the winner and three guests.
