Beginning April 12, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) brings Play Me, I’m Yours to Los Angeles for three weeks ending on May 1st . Thirty pianos, decorated by local artists and community organizations, will be installed in outdoor locations across LA County. Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is a citywide installation by artist Luke Jerram. Play Me, I’m Yours kicked off on April 12th with a special “lunch launch,” a simultaneous play-in of Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier at all 30 pianos. The pianos are available for any member of the public to play 24 hours a day, seven days a week! Among the 30 locations: L.A. LIVE, Santa Monica Pier, and Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood. Play Me, I’m Yours is the culmination of LACO’s season-long celebration of acclaimed Music Director and pianist Jeffrey Kahane’s 15th anniversary with the Orchestra.
