Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

For the first time, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra this year is producing a series of concerts, entitled Westside Connections, that take "a look at the connections between music and other artistic disciplines." Last month, former National Endowment for the Arts chairman and Californian poet Dana Gioia took the stage with the music group and next week Thursday three-time U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky will read poetry between Mozart's Quintet in E-flat major for Piano and Winds and Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht (“Transfigured Night”). The concert is at the new Broad Stage at Santa Monica College at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 5. Tickets run $37 a piece, but we are giving away two pairs of tickets in this contest.
