The Da Camera Society of Mount St. Mary’s College presents its series “Chamber Music in Historic Sites” tonight at 8:30 pm at LA City Hall’s Council Chambers. (A pre-concert talk is scheduled for 8 pm. The program Fretwork “incorporates intricate fantazias in three to five parts and the stunning In Nomines in six and seven parts, also weaving in some of [Henry] Purcell’s most eloquent vocal solos, including the ecstatic Evening Hymn and the poignant Lament from Dido and Aeneas.” The evening features Clare Wilkinson, mezzo-soprano. Tickets are $45.

The storyline of Pope Joan is one of “historic and ecclesiastical circumstances, which may have given a young girl access to the papacy, brings century old scandals to life once more.” The dramatic musical account opens tonight at 8 pm and runs until March 22 at the Stella Adler Theatre. There’s validated parking at the KODAK Center. Tickets are $34.99.

The mini-retrospective of the westerns of John Sturges takes to the screen at the Egyptian Theatre tonight with a new 35 mm print of The Magnificant Seven at 7:30 pm. It’s the American remake of Akira Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai featuring Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson, James Coburn and Robert Vaughn. They’re the gunmen hired to safeguard a Mexican farm village from a marauding bandit chief. Author Glenn Lovell will be signing copies of his new Sturges biography Escape Artist starting at 6:30 PM preceding the screening.
