Slim pickings to choose from this Thanksgiving week and that makes it hard to choose just one. Friday through Sunday, the LA Phil will be playing Brahms' "Double Concerto" and Dvorák's killer Symphony No. 9 "From the New World," while the LA Opera opens two shows that will play on alternating dates: Don Giovanni and La Boheme. Tonight at Sundays Live, the free concert at LACMA, is Franz Schubert's "Quintet in C Major, D. 956" (next week, The California String Quarter will be playing).

Though, this does seem to be a week for concerts at universities. USC Thornton Contemporary Music Ensemble plays on Tuesday, as well as the CSULB Woodwind Chamber Music and CSULA Chamber Music.

Last Sunday's pick of the week is tonight (we wanted to give some advance warning).
