One wouldn't really expect to go to the LACMA to go see great classical music, but during the season every Sunday at 6 there is a free concert of some great mid-career musicians or student virtuosos, broadcasted on 88.5 KCSN. Today we have violinist Hahn-Bin and pianist John Blacklow performing the Mozart and Franck violin sonatas.

Next week on Friday we have jazz singer/songwriter/pianist Bill Cantos takes the stage, and on Sunday we have cellist Ruslan Biryukov and pianist Mary Au performing works by Chopin and Popper, pieces most listeners are not familiar with. It's a good time to check out the Broad contemporary museum as well, if you haven't done so already. The concerts usually last no more than two hours, so plan dinner accordingly. The Hollywood Bowl has more going on than just Radiohead, with concerts featuring German and Romantic composers.
