Pencil This In: Holiday Cartoon Classics, Sweet Honey in the Rock and Shopping on 3rd & Spring
Sweet Honey in the Rock, a vocal ensemble comprised of African-American women, brings African storytelling and world holiday music to the Walt Disney Concert Hall stage tonight at 8 pm. The entire concert is simultaneously sung and sign-interpreted by one of the members of the performance troupe, Shirley Childress Saxton. Tickets are $25-$72.
The 3rd & Spring Holiday Market & Gift Exchange ends its run at 7 pm tonight. The market features hand-made holiday gifts by local artists, crafts, paintings, gift baskets, photography, jewelry, clothing, ornaments, soaps, candles, and holiday foods. Also, shoppers can bring in any unopened gift item they don’t want and exchange it for something for themselves or those on their holiday gift list through the market’s Holiday Gift Exchange. And free gift wrapping, too! This holiday market is a precursor to the year-round, indoor 3rd & Spring Artisan Market opening in Spring 2010 in DTLA. Free admission.
