KUSC producer travels to Venezuela with L.A. Philharmonic, blogging all the way
Brian Lauritzen, producer and host at Los Angeles classical music pubradio giant KUSC-FM, is venturing far and wide in order to cover the classical beat — more than 3,600 miles, in fact. Lauritzen is accompanying conductor Gustavo Dudamel and the L.A. Philharmonic Orchestra on their historic trip to Dudamel's native Venezuela, producing radio pieces and blog posts for KUSC from Caracas, Venezuela's capital. The orchestra preformed Mahler's Ninth Symphony on Feb. 11 to a sold-out crowd of 2,400 at the Teatro Teresa Carreño, South America's second-largest theater. You can see rehearsal video clips, photos, and Lauritzen's accounting of the performance in his Feb. 12 blog post.
