Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Los Angeles Chamber Symphony Society was founded sometime in the 1940s and was committed to cultivating the musical arts. The collection contains contracts, correspondence, and material related to reading premiers for student orchestral compositions and membership.
Founded in the 1940s, the Los Angeles Chamber Symphony Society was a society for music lovers. Paying yearly dues enabled members to attend rehearsals, concerts, social gatherings, and events such as Reading Premiers for student orchestral compositions. The object of the society was the cultivation of the musical arts, the sponsoring of concerts by a Chamber Symphony Orchestra, and the promotion of social intercourse among its members. Concerts organized by the society usually took place at Royce Hall at the University of California, Los Angeles. The society hired resident composers such as Igor Stravinsky, Aaron Copeland, and Carlos Chavez.
