CAMA's Centennial Season—December 11, 2018—Free Community Concert—Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra—Avi Avital, mandolin—The Granada Theatre, 8:00 PM

FREE COMMUNITY CONCERT: CELEBRATING CAMA AT 100! at The Granada Theatre In celebration of a century of great music in Santa Barbara and with continuing appreciation for the generations of concertgoers and patrons who have made this legacy possible, CAMA’s Board of Directors sponsors this Free Community Concert by the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra with star mandolinist Avi Avital. Thank you to “The CAMA Family” of engaged music lovers who have made Santa Barbara a classical music capital for 100 concert seasons! Enjoy! AVI AVITAL, mandolin LOS ANGELES CHAMBER ORCHESTRA “America’s finest chamber orchestra…” – Public Radio International TUESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2018, 8:00 PM Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Avi Avital, mandolin Founded in 1968 as an artistic outlet for the recording industry’s most gifted musicians, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra has spent the ensuing five decades methodically burnishing its reputation as one of the world’s top ensembles. A musical force in his own right, “Explosively charismatic” (The New York Times) virtuoso mandolin soloist Avi Avital has emerged as one of the foremost ambassadors for his instrument. This concert will see them team up for an all-Vivaldi program, including two of the Venetian Baroque master’s concertos for two violins; of course, no Vivaldi program would be complete without The Four Seasons, his beloved collection of violin concertos, to be performed with Avital on mandolin. ALL-VIVALDI PROGRAM: Concerto for Two Violins in G minor, RV 517 Concerto for Two Violins in A minor, RV 523 The Four Seasons (complete), F.I:22-25 PRE-CONCERT LECTURE BY DAVID MALVINNI, PH.D. While there is no ticket fee, tickets are required, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. CAMA season subscribers have priority and first option for reserving seats. The public will have the opportunity to reserve no-cost tickets starting Friday, September 28, 2018. •
