Organizer

LA Lawyers Philharmonic & Legal Voices

Proclaimed by the City of Los Angeles as “LA’s Only Legal Orchestra,” the Los Angeles Lawyers Philharmonic held its first rehearsal on January 19, 2009 with 30 legal musicians and performed its debut concert on January 30, 2009. Since then, the orchestra has grown to 75 members and performed more than 30 concerts, raising thousands of dollars to benefit those who cannot afford legal services and for other charitable purposes.

On April 30, 2011, Legal Voices held its first rehearsal. Three months later, the chorus debuted with the LA Lawyers Phil at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Consisting of more than 100 members, Legal Voices gave a triumphant performance of the finale of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, the Ode To Joy. On that date, the County of Los Angeles proclaimed the Los Angeles Lawyers Philharmonic and Legal Voices as “LA’s Only Legal Orchestra and Chorus.”

On July 21, 2012, the orchestra and chorus collaborated under the baton of Maestro Greene for a critically acclaimed performance of Carmina Burana to a sold-out Walt Disney Concert Hall.

These musical organizations are 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. Others are harmonizing, using their voices that are more commonly heard in courtrooms than on concert stages. Nevertheless, the music prevails. The orchestra and chorus perform on a professional level in LA's major concert venues. They are a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. For more information, visit www.LALawyersPhil.org
