Classical Pick of the Week: La Bohème, Lowenthal at LACMA, and Brewer with the Pasadena Symphony
Carl St. Clair will conduct the Puccini classic La Bohème one more time this Tuesday at 8 pm. Last night's concert sold out, and we expect this to be in high demand, so get your tickets while you still can. Maija Kovalevska will play the role of Mimi (the role she debuted at the Met Opera with), and here's a nice little previewwith Carl St. Clair. Tickets available here.
The next LACMA's Sundays Live brings Juilliard's Jerome Lowenthal to perform with Nadia Schpachenko in performances of Debussy's Petite Suite, Fauré's Dolly Suite, and solo performances of Liszt and Debussy. As usual, tickets are free and the showstarts at 6 PM.
Saturday night brings an end to Pasadena Symphony's season, and are bringing in acclaimed soprano Christine Brewer. As expected, she will perform works of Strauss and Wagner. Dvorak's 8th Symphony is also thrown in as an added bonus, and you can learn more about the program here. The concert will take place at the Ambassador Auditorium and you can learn more about tickets here.
