Delirium Musicum

ETIENNE GARA, Artistic Director

January 15th & 16th, 2024


Delirium Musicum is a self-conducted, ethnically diverse chamber orchestra dedicated to providing impassioned and engaging musical performances that deeply connect audience and musicians. Influenced by the bustling artistic mosaic of LA, the group applies dazzling creativity and limitless excitement to their performances.

The musicians who make up Delirium Musicum are devoted to making sure that each concert is an immediate, visceral experience for their audiences. Their dedicated, impassioned performances grab hold of concert-goers’ emotions and don’t let go. It’s awe-inspiring, from the first moment that a bow is drawn across a string until the very last note.

At the heart of Delirium Musicum is a singular desire to build a special bond with its audience, to bring joy, to move people to tears, to inspire people through music. The immediacy of its performances, its connection to Los Angeles, and its time-traveling concerts fusing old and new: all the elements that make up Delirium Musicum are designed to make music a force that brings people together to share in something that is truly special.

French-born violinist Etienne Gara has performed extensively worldwide in some of the most renowned venues, including recurring international appearances at Itzhak Perlman’s Chamber Music Festival. Dedicated to crossing musical boundaries, he appeared on Leonard Cohen’s last album, collaborated with Benjamin Millepied and the LA Dance Project, founded the award-winning Sunset Club Trio, which combined violin with flamenco and electric guitar in arrangements of great classical repertoire, and created Sketches of Miles, a multi-stylistic exploration inspired by the work of Miles Davis.
