Pittance Chamber Music, known for featuring the exceptional resident artists of the Los Angeles Opera pit and stage, presents A Tale of Two Émigrés with James Conlon. LA Opera Music Director James Conlon curates and conducts a unique program that tells the tale of Jewish émigré composers Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Arnold Schoenberg, who left their homelands and ultimately settled in Los Angeles as a result of the Nazis’ rise to power. James Conlon is one of the world’s most important and successful advocates for the music of composers suppressed during the Nazi regime. The program will include a talk by Conlon, who will also conduct works by Korngold and Schoenberg performed by a large ensemble consisting of members of the Los Angeles Opera OrchestraTicket Information:  www.PittanceChamberMusic.org
