Classical Pick Of The Week: Counterprogramming
Some mood music for Valentine's Day. If you're one of the 22% of Americans that don't watch the Super Bowl, you can either check out some of the hottest restaurants in town, go to Disneyland (no lines!) or check out Camerata Pacifica today at 3 PM at the Temple Beth Torah in Ventura. The chamber music ensemble is performing works by Clementi, Schumann, Debussy, and Currier. If you can't make it out there for one reason or another, they are performing at the Huntington Library in Pasadena at 8 PM on Tuesday and on Thursday at 8 PM at Zipper Hall in Downtown.
For a completely different Valentine's Day concert (i.e. not Rachmaninoff), you can check out the Monday Evening Concert at the Colburn School. Expect a lot of contemporary music from composers like John Cage, Anton Webern, and Aaron Cassidy from the JACK Quartet. There's also a film that Sunday morning if you want the complete experience.
