This Week in Classical Picks: Sundays Live

Stories like these are only possible with your help!
You have the power to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your financial support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Thank you for investing in your community.

This week's top pick comes in the form of a Los Angeles tradition that has been happening since 1948, yet goes by unnoticed every week by many in this city. Welcome to Sundays Live -- it's free, lasts only an hour and there is no need to call ahead for reservations. In fact, if you can't make it, the concert will be heard by delayed broadcast on Wednesday at noon on KCSN, 88.5FM (a favorite station of ours by the way).

6:00 p.m. tonight @ LACMA's Leo S. Bing Theater
Program: Ragtime(Scott Joplin), Appalachian Spring Suite (Aaron Copland), Adagio for Strings (Samuel Barber)

On another note...
Both the Classical Tuesday and Thursday series begin this week at Hollywood Bowl. That all adds up to 20 concerts of excellent music played by the Los Angeles Philharmonic. If you can get them, tickets run as cheap as $1.00 for the benches in the way back. Not a bad deal for one of the best orchestras in the world and a night of picnicking under the stars with friends and wine.
