Back in Los Angeles and just wanted to give a quick shout out to my friend Kenneth Freundlich who will be performing in Disney Hall
on July 20 for the Fourth Annual Concert Extraordinaire by the Los Angeles Lawyers Philharmonic and Legal Voices at 8 pm.
Ken is part of “LA’s Only Legal Orchestra and Chorus,” under the baton of founder-conductor Gary S. Greene, Esq. The music will include Antonín Dvořák’s “Symphony from the New World,” Beethoven’s “Choral Fantasy,” magnificent choral works from Verdi operas Il Trovatore and Nabucco, the world premiere of arias from a new opera based on a book by the Hon. Arthur Gilbert (presiding justice of the California Court of Appeal) plus selections from Bizet’s Carmen to Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story and Candide. Actress June Lockhart will MC. Choral director is Jim Raycroft.
The Los Angeles Lawyers Philharmonic is the orchestra where lawyers, judges, law students and legal staff meet in harmony. The members include conservatory graduates, professional musicians and some hobbyists who are dusting off instruments they played in their youth. It is the music that prevails. Consisting of more than 50 musicians, the orchestra performs on a professional level for bar associations, civic and charitable events.
I’ve known Ken, an expert on copyright law, for many years as I’ve covered the digital evolution of the music and entertainment industries. Here’s a clip from from one of my stories I’ve quoted him on!
Ken will be soloing during the July 20th show so it should be especially fun to see!!
