Classical Pick of the Week: A Neighborhood Concert
For the past 16 years, as part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic's dedication to making music accessible to the widest possible audience, they have been presenting free neighborhood concerts in the community at churches, community centers and other local venues around Southern California.
The series for this year begins this week in San Gabriel. The Latin-flavored program includes Bizet’s Suite No. 1 from Carmen; Falla’s Suite from El amor brujo; Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 with soprano Lori Ann Fuller as soloist; and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio espagnol. We love Villa-Lobos and Rimsky-Korsakov. We also love free. Tickets are first come, first serve. To reserve tickets, call 626.457.4600.
