Classical Pick of the Week: Lang Lang and Company

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Don't forget to enter for a chance to win two free tickets to see LACO perform Beethoven's 5th Symphony! For those looking for something to do tonight, the Santa Monica Symphony is hosting a free concert tonight featuring Beethoven's Piano Concerto no. 2.

Lang Lang will be performing in two concerts this week, one in Orange County and one at the Mouse House. The first concert takes place Tuesday, November 3rd at 7:30 PM in the Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. Lang Lang brings a few of his friends along for this concert. Guest performers include a 10 year old pianist, and the program is supposed to highlight up and coming Chinese musicians including cellist Hai-Ye Ni, tenor GeQun Wang, violinist Zhu Dan, and erhu ("chinese violin") player Guo Gan. For those that are looking for something more traditional and/or closer to home, Lang Lang will be performing works of Beethoven and Prokofiev. This concert is this Sunday at 7:30 PM, and you can get tickets here.
