Classical Pick Of The Week: Bolshoi In OC, Jazz At Disney Hall

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Brad Mehldau has some great covers of Radiohead songs on youtube, go check them out. Or check him out this Friday at the Walt Disney Concert Hall (Radiohead not included).

Now that you've seen Black Swan and want to talk about ballet all the time with your friends, you can take them to OCPAC this week to check out Reflections, a dance event featuring some top-notch dancers performing some classics and world premieres.

There are four performances, from Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 2 PM. Tickets start at 15 dollars. You can also casually mention the Black Swan in conversation and talk about how much better these Bolshoi-trained dancers were compared to the actresses in the movie. They will be so impressed!

If the OC is too far for your liking, Brad Mehldau presents his latest CD release Highway Rider in concert featuring a jazz ensemble and chamber orchestra. For some more background info from the LA Phil, click here and some supplemental information here.The performance is on Friday at 8 PM, and tickets are sure to go quickly.
