Los Angeles Baroque (LAB) is LA’s only community baroque orchestra, directed by violinist Lindsey Strand-Polyak and cellist Alexa Haynes-Pilon.
Founded in 2016, LAB gives dedicated community musicians from across greater Los Angeles regular opportunities to explore repertoire, learn Baroque playing style (suitable for music composed c. 1650-1750) and perform.
LAB gives three main season concerts a year at its home of St. James’, hosts workshops, and undertakes community outreach projects and performance collaborations. Additionally, LAB provides music for select services throughout the liturgical year. 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.
