Rucksack with Geeta Novotny at NACUSA Los Angeles Conference

Geeta Novotny performs Rucksack, my monodrama about Julianne Heyman’s harrowing escape from the Nazis only to get arrested by police in the United States on suspicion of prostitution—because she had a hiking backpack! (unusual in the U.S. in the 1940s). This concert is the culmination of the NACUSA 85th anniversary conference.

Free program includes Russell Steinberg's Violin Duos  performed by Alisa Luera and Clara Ross, the Mendelssohn String Quartet No. 2, and several other chamber pieces by talented students from the Los Angeles Youth Orchestra.

LAEMMLE LIVE proudly presents chamber players from Los Angeles Youth Orchestra. LAYO is comprised of pre-college age musicians from greater Los Angeles who rehearse and perform classical symphonic masterworks and contemporary music. Talent, intellectual curiosity, and discipline are key to student performances of programs that model professional orchestras, more than conventional youth orchestras.

Each season, the Los Angeles Youth Orchestra serves over 120 student musicians, ages 8-18, who hail from 60 different public and private schools. In addition to studying privately and attending weekly orchestra rehearsals, many of these students give back to their communities by teaching music to younger students, volunteering at hospitals, writing columns for their school and local newspapers, and excelling in their academic and athletic pursuits.

LAYO rehearses at the Encino Community Center on Sunday afternoons and regularly performs at UCLA Schoenberg Hall and Ambassador Auditorium. LAYO has also appeared at Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, and Carnegie Hall. The orchestra toured internationally to Vienna and Prague in 2015 and in June 2017, completed a nine-day performance tour to Italy, presenting concerts at the Arvedi Auditorium in Cremona; Terme Tettuccio in Montecatini; and Sant’Agnese in Agone in Rome. Many of the orchestra’s alumni have gone on to prestigious universities including Juilliard, Cornell, Berklee College of Music, UCLA, USC, Harvard and New England Conservatory.
