Los Angeles Baroque (LAB) is LA's only community baroque orchestra, directed by professional baroque violinist Lindsey Strand-Polyak.
Who is LAB for? Musicians ages 16 to 86! We welcome professional players who want to study historical performance practices, students who want to explore music of the Baroque era, pre-professionals looking for playing/performance experience and amateur musicians eager to play.
Started in 2016 by founding artistic directors Alexa Haynes-Pilon and Lindsey Strand-Polyak, LAB gives dedicated community, student and professional musicians from across greater Los Angeles regular opportunities to explore repertoire, learn baroque playing style (suitable for music composed c.1600-1750) and perform. LAB typically gives three main season concerts a year at its home of St James' in South Pasadena, hosts workshops, and undertakes community outreach projects and performance collaborations. LAB's goal is to encourage, support and expand the early music community in Los Angeles, and to be inclusive in reach to give all highly motivated players the opportunity to participate.
