L.A. Camerata strives to tell the stories of women and "others" silenced throughout history. Our performances highlight works by early-modern women from across the world. Inspired by the original renaissance camerati—philosophical societies that debated aesthetics in the arts and society—we seek to blur the boundaries between music and drama, resurrecting live voices on stage. We were honored to have been "Recommended" by the Beverly Hills Auditions committee to the Consortium of Southern California Chamber Music Presenters for our historically-informed program of solo voice and viola da gamba duets for and by women. We also recently made our Berkeley Early Music Fringe Festival debut in June 2018. Past theatrical productions include the first woman-composed opera, Francesca Caccini's La liberazione di Ruggiero. Our inaugural season will feature musical and dramatic works for both small and large ensembles, including two world premiere revivals of works by sixteenth-century women.
