James Conlon and LA Opera Launch Britten 100/LA: A Celebration
Conlon’s homage to Britten hits Los Angeles. James kicks off a year-long centennial celebration, aptly titled Britten 100/LA: A Celebration, with a free talk at LA Opera on February 23.
Conlon will discuss the music and artistic legacy of Britten, as well as introduce a number of exciting festival events happening throughout Southern California well into 2014. The event will also include performances of Britten vocal works by members of LA Opera’s Domingo-Thornton Young Artist Program and all attendees are invited to meet Mr. Conlon in person after the presentation.
