ABOUT PITTANCE CHAMBER MUSIC|
Among the most extraordinary musicians in the world are those you seldom see - the musicians of the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra. Artistic Director Lisa Sutton created Pittance Chamber Music in 2013 to shine the spotlight on these remarkable yet invisible artists, bringing them from the pit to the stage to perform in small ensembles, hence the name Pittance. The roster of artists is drawn from a large pool of talent that includes members of the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra and Los Angeles Opera resident vocalists, performing a unique variety of chamber music repertoire not often heard together in one program. Pittance celebrates the 2018-19 Fifth Anniversary Season with three exciting programs at the Pasadena Conservatory of Music:
