As part of their annual neighborhood and community concert series, the LA Philharmonic will be visiting Van Nuys, Inglewood and Pomona next month. It's all about their goal of making "music accessible to the widest possible audience." To that end, the three concerts are free (well, the Pomona show is an easy $5) and will feature Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on “Greensleeves,” Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate and Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, Suite No. 1. To get in, you must reserve a spot. Also: The orchestra released a live concert recording for purchase on iTunes today. The concert from the Shadow of Stalin series features works from Shostakovich and Mosolov.

How to Reserve Tickets

Ticket requests are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The one-hour concerts are presented without an intermission.
