LA Phil New Music Group: Late-night Green Umbrella concert

Thomas Adès at 50

Thomas Ades conducting vigorously

Thomas Adès conducts the LA Phil New Music Group in a free, late-night concert from the LA Phil’s Green Umbrella new music series, showcasing cutting-edge compositions from classical music’s coalface.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic is a byword for orchestral innovation, and its Green Umbrella is a new music series with a striking difference: a place where cultures meet, interact, and sometimes clash – but never leave each other unmoved. 

And there could be no-one better to curate and conduct a special British edition than Thomas Adès: a man with an intimate knowledge of the incredible richness of the new music scene; a composer driving classical music forward in the 21st century.

End-time to be announced nearer the event.


‘Their standards are of the highest, their commitment to new commissions and modern repertoire unrivalled‘
