What began as a talent show has evolved into a much-anticipated evening of stellar singer songwriter performances. Kollaboration has helped launch the successful dance and music careers of numerous Asian American artists, including Far East Movement, Kina Grannis and Kenichi Ebina, winner of “America’s Got Talent.” This year, indie singer/songwriter and Kollaboration alum Hana Kim hosts a benefit concert in support of local nonprofit Saving Innocence to raise awareness of human trafficking and inspire change within the community. An eclectic group of up-and-coming artists will join Kim in a night of music, art and discussion. Featured artists include Lucy Schwartz, Hotel Cinema, Belmont Lights and Jane Lui.

Headlined by Los Angeles rock band Dengue Fever, the Cambodian Music Festival is more than just a fun day of being captivated by the original music of inspired artists. It is about supporting and participating in a larger movement. We answer a louder call to rebuild and restore an artistic legacy that was nearly destroyed by the brutal Khmer Rouge regime. The driving force of this renaissance is the refusal to be defined by this tragic past. Transcendence lies within the creation of these new works, which humbly strive to replace what was nearly lost. Dance to the rhythms as the stories unfold of what we survived and why we survived.

Members of the Lyris Quartet perform Silvestre Revueltas's Musica de Feria and Brahms's String Quartet in A Minor, op. 51, no. 2.
The Lyris Quartet was founded in 2008. Drawing on their diverse backgrounds, the musicians chose to create a string quartet that could encompass their love for both standard and modern repertoire and to commission works from living composers. The Lyris Quartet have performed at many chamber-music venues in Los Angeles, including LACMA’s Bing Theater, the Broad Stage, Zipper Hall at the Colburn School, Royce Hall at UCLA, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Presented as part of LACMA's Sundays Live, a weekly chamber music series. Check out the full schedule of upcoming concerts.
