Classical Pick of the Week: Pacific
If you aren't going out to the Ojai Music Festival (and why not?), you've still got some fun programs at home. Pacific Serenades is performing at the UCLA Faculty Center on Tuesday at 8 PM. The program includes Ravel's Introduction and Allegro, a Haydn string quartet, and a world premiere.
For the OC crowd, the Pacific Symphony is performing at OCPAC in a Gershwin/Rachmaninoff program. Pianist Orion Weiss is headlining withthe always popular Rhapsody in Blue. Other works by Gershwin, Harbison, and Rachmaninoff are on the program. Tickets are available for shows on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 PM.
