To experience LA's most cutting-edge percussion chamber music, join the Los Angeles Percussion Quartet this Saturday at Zipper Hall at the Colburn School. The LAPQ is known for their performances of Californian avant-garde composers, and for their commissions of award-winning compositions. This weekend the LAPQ puts on a world premiere Rupa-Khanda, from award winning composer Sean Heim. Tickets are available at the box office for only $15, $10 with a valid student ID.

In Hollywood Bowl-related news, there is no shortage of firepower this week. Itzhak Perlman on the violin (and conducting) Beethoven on Tuesday, Joyce Yang performing the Saint Saens Piano Concerto no. 2 on Thursday, and the Tchaikovsky with Fireworks spectacular this weekend. Thursday's performance also includes Respighi's the Pines of Rome, and this year Tchaikovsky's Variations on a Rococo Theme is the main attraction for the Tchaikovsky Spectacular with Fireworks.
