The summer season is about to pick up some steam, great news for those languishing because of the lack of concerts. The Hollywood Bowl just kicked off their Summer season (more on that later), the Music Academy of the West begins this week, and musicians are streaming into Aspen this week to prep for the Summer-long festival.

If you're a ballet fan, the Ballet Nacional de Cuba comes to the Music Center this week to perform Don Quixote, and should be an improvement over last week's lackluster performances at OCPAC.

We've always been fans of the Cal Phil, and especially the Festival on the Green, and they kick off their summer season, which may not take place at the http://www.arboretum.org/ after this summer (another reason to go). This week's Beethoven and Beatles program featuring your favorite Beatles songs, Beethoven's 5th, and the Egmont Overture. Concert is this Saturday at 7:30 PM, and repeats on Sunday at the Disney Hall at 2 PM. To buy tickets to the concerts this weekend or for the rest of the season, click here.
