It's the last week of Classical music at the Bowl! The season is going to end with a bang with Mozart's Requiem on Tuesday and Handel and Fireworks on Thursday.

We've all heard the Requiem before, and if you've never seen a requiem at the Bowl, it's always one of the most memorable concerts of the season. Expect some goosebumps and hair-raising moments so bring a sweater.

The most exciting part of Thursday's finale is not the Handel with the fireworks, it's the Beethoven Triple Concerto (think piano trio plus orchestra). This piece hasn't been performed with the LA Phil in quite a while (it's also insanely difficult), so go. As an added bonus, Rossini and Haydn are also on the program.
