The kind folks who read LAist every week (that’s YOU!) live all over this fantastic city and we try to have a little something for everyone. This week’s classical pick has us hanging out at the Norton Simon Museum in the Pasadena/SGV area for a concert featuring musicians of the Grammy-Award winning Southwest Chamber Music group.

This Saturday’s program includes Charles Ives’ Children’s Day at the Camp Meeting, Schubert’s Shepherd of the Rock (believed to be his last composition) and a transcription of Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 in G Major by Erwin Stein. Those who find the trek a little too far should be relieved to know that the concert repeats on Monday in Downtown at Zipper Hall at the Colburn School.
