Classical Pick of the Week: Saturday Night's Alright

LAist relies on your reader support, not paywalls.
Freely accessible local news is vital. Please power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today.

Tired of spending your Saturday nights in crowded restaurants/packed locales (or at home reading instruction manuals, not that we do this too often)? Why not try a concert? Since the number of tickets and seats are already set, you won't worry about getting packed into a place like sardines.

If you're in Los Angeles....John Williams returns to the Bowl to conduct music from the Golden age of Hollywood and a few of his own scores. You can watch it this Saturday (and Friday) at 8:30 PM.

If you want opera music or to avoid traffic at night, the LA Opera is at the Ford Amphitheatre at 10 AM (5 dollars for general admission, free admission for kids 12 and under) of interactive music from some of the greatest and most popular operas. Pre-show activities at 9 AM are not stuffy lectures that your kids will hate, instead, they offer various craft projects!
