Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We return to our regularly scheduled programming to announce the opening of Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra's 2010-2011 season, this Saturday and Sunday. One of the most well known violinists in the world, Leila Josefowicz, is to perform the Prokofiev Violin Concerto no. 1 with the orchestra, along with conductor (and fellow Canadian) Julian Kuerti. Unfortunately, Kahane is still recovering from mononucleosis, and we wish him a speedy recovery. The program also includes excerpts from Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Haydn's 88th Symphony, and a newer work from American composer Pierre Jalbert.

The Saturday concert is at Alex Theatre at 8 PM, and the Sunday concert is at Royce Hall at 9 PM. There are various purchase plans for tickets, and we recommend taking a look here before you make your purchase.

If you can't make it out this weekend, the LA Opera is performing the world premiere of Il Postino, based on the popular 1994 film. If you've always wondered if Neruda would break out into song, now's your chance. Performances begin on the 23rd.
