Stradosphere: a Strad –Studded Gala Evening put together by the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra took place at the California Club in downtown Los Angeles on March 29. Conductor Jeffery Kahane, concertmaster Margaret Batjer, together with a group of world class violinists, joined by the members of the Orchestra, performed a memorable concert featuring works by Bach, Vivaldi and Piazzolla.
