Enjoy a fresh program of powerful music with the AYS Fall Concert. Maestro Carlos Izcaray and 45 of your favorite AYS musicians have worked creatively and collaboratively to bring you a full program, featuring pieces from Igor Stravinsky, Jessie Montgomery, Benjamin Britten, and a new piece by our very own Music Director, Maestro Carlos Izcaray.

To keep the music alive during pandemic circumstances, 23 wind and brass musicians record their parts from home, a percussion trio performs in a warehouse, and 19 string players make a triumphant return to Royce Hall.

To make the evening even more special, purchase a gourmet catered meal or a watch party snack pack to enjoy on concert day! The delicious meal, prepared by our beloved chef, Maxine Banks, will be beautifully packaged and delivered to locations in the LA area on November 1st. Please see the menu below. Snack packs include a fun and hearty variety of sweet and savory snacks for two.

This concert broadcast will be free for all to enjoy on November 1, 2020, at 4pm Pacific until November 2, 2020 at 11:59pm. After the Nov. 1 broadcast, the concert video will then be available on-demand for one year in the AYS Member Portal. Become a member today!
