A paragon of grace and beauty, the Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress stole Clark Gable's heart and advanced women's status in entertainment by becoming the longest-running female host of a prime-time television show with The Loretta Young Show. Leading lady of such films as The Farmer's Daughter, The Bishop's Wife and The Stranger, Young shared the screen with such greats as Cary Grant, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. Young's son and daughter will be on hand, along with celebrity friends, to take the audience on a journey through the star's life.

AS usual an excellent performance by the LACO. The second half of the concert featured an American premier of an orchestration of a Brahms trio. I was really impressed. My only complaint was that the piece was too long, by about 15 minutes and some judicious editing will make this a standard piece.
Mozart: Symphony No. 33 in B-flat major
Mozart: Bassoon Concerto in B-flat major
Brahms/Swensen: Sinfonia in B (original 1854 version of Trio, Op. 8)
Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra
Joseph Swensen, conductor
Kenneth Munday, bassoon
Recapture the exuberance of youth with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra: Mozart composed his Symphony No. 33 at the age of 24 and the charming Bassoon Concerto when he was just 18! Kenneth Munday, principal bassoonist for the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, will perform this concerto. Joseph Swensen will guest conduct Sinfonia in B, his arrangement for chamber orchestra of the Brahms Piano Trio. Swensen notes that his orchestration reflects the romantic and surprisingly radical mentality of 21-year-old original composer Brahms.
Arrive early for a concert prelude one hour before the concert to hear the stories behind the music with guest conductor Joseph Swensen.
