The Alberta Ballet performs a dance interpretation of the music of Joni Mitchell at UCLA’s Royce Hall tonight and tomorrow.

Tickets are $32/$44/$56/$75. ($15 UCLA Students.)
Portraits of Artists and Composers is a musical performance by Polli Chambers-Salazar at the Norton Simon Museum from 7-8 pm tonight. Dr. Chambers-Salazar performs a variety of piano works from the early 20th century and discusses the interconnections among the artists and composers.
