Classical Pick of the Week: Music and Martinis (and More)

Before you read more...
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.

Imagine getting drunk while listening to the Archduke Trio! Or watch it live next week (and get drunk). One door closes and another one opens right? While the Cal Phil unfortunately lost their summer home at the Arboretum to the Pasadena Pops, the Cal Phil kicked off a new series: "Music, Martinis, and the Maestro". These concerts take place on Sunday afternoons at 1 PM and you can catch the last one next Sunday in an all-Beethoven program featuring the violin, cello, piano, and guitar. You can get tickets here.

The concerts take place at the Noor Sofia Ballroom and Dining Room and if you add some alcoholic beverage (wine also available) and food you can have a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon (since a game 7 is looking very unlikely).

The Long Beach Opera, an up and coming opera company, is putting on a production of Shostakovich's Moscow, Cheryomushki ("Bird Cherry Tree"). There's a performance next Sunday at 2 PM (Center Theater), Wednesday the 18th at 7:30 PM (Irvine Barclay Theatre), and Sunday the 22nd at 2 PM (Barnum Hall, Santa Monica).

Instead of getting tickets on ticketmaster, you can get them here. If you're looking for something tonight, you can still check out this guy at the Disney Hall.
