It was a cold and windy Thursday at the Americana at Brand for the Glendale Renaissance Orchestra’s inaugural concert of their four-concert series. Still, that didn’t deter an eager, though somewhat thin, crowd from turning out to see the orchestra’s first performance that presented an hour of music with vocal stars soprano Dale Kristien and tenor Joseph Pokorski, all led by its conductor, Steven Goldstein. The chilly temperatures caused instrument pitch and intonation difficulties.

The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, a collection of professional studio musicians, keeps it fresh this season by including new, young voices in its classical and cross-genre repertoire. In last Saturday night’s show at the Alex Theatre, a superb piece by 28-year-old composer Nico Muhly was featured, as well as a brand-new mandolin concerto composed and performed by the astounding Chris Thile, also 28. Upon hearing Muhly’s “By All Means,” a piece commissioned by the Juilliard School and the Royal Academy of Music, it was easy to see why Muhly is often called upon to compose film soundtracks (most notably for the Oscar-nominated “The Reader”)
