The Los Angeles Lawyers Philharmonic held its Fabulous Fall Concert at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre Nov. 18.

The orchestra, composed of lawyers, judges, law students and legal staff, performed music from Beethoven to Broadway along with its Legal Voices chorus, under the conduction of maestro Gary S. Greene. The performance attracted an audience of more than 1,000, orchestra officials said.

Greene founded the LA Lawyers Philharmonic in 2009, and the orchestra, which now features 75 musicians, has performed more than 50 concerts, raising money to benefit those who cannot afford legal services.

Greene organized Legal Voices in 2011. The group now features more than 100 vocalists.
