To celebrate the different forms that love can take, Compose LA presents an evening concert featuring a program of work by LA’s most exciting composers in Love Notes. With Kaleidoscope, a conductor-less orchestra, and UCLA musicologist Shana Redmond as speaker, the program features orchestral music that, whether written today or centuries ago, speaks profoundly to our community and is both representative of its time and timeless.
