About Pittance Chamber Music

Pittance Chamber Music was created in 2013 by LA Opera Orchestra Assistant Concertmaster Lisa Sutton, who wanted to showcase the gifted artists who perform in the orchestra pit, where they are heard but mostly unseen. Since then, Pittance has expanded its ranks to include members of the Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artist Program, as well as members of the Los Angeles Opera Chorus.

Tickets for this concert can be purchased on the Pittance Chamber Music website here.
