LAURI D. GOLDENHERSH’s Weekly Highlights
I love fall, even though it tends to be a little non-traditional here in Southern California. We do have fall colors, although they don’t tend to hit until after the annual September heat wave, and then things kind of settle into a cozy routine — one which includes a lot of music.
This time of year, be on the lookout for student and faculty recitals that may either introduce you to new rep or bring nostalgic thoughts of songs gone by. This Friday at noon, tenor CHARLES W. KAMM and pianist GAYLE BLANKENBURG kick off the varied and excellent Friday Noon Concert Series at Pomona College in Claremont. The concerts are free, just about 30 minutes long, and the campus is a great place to enjoy the season. Be sure to get on the Music at Pomona mailing list. Get info on the concert by clicking:
In SoCal’s “Down Under”, BACH COLLEGIUM SAN DIEGO launches their eleventh season (the upstarts have grown up!) with music from Bach, Handel and Muffat. They’ll be in La Jolla on Friday and Balboa Park on Saturday. Sounds like a good excuse for a day trip. Get the 411 by clicking:
CENTER STAGE OPERA is feeding bodies and souls again this weekend with a Dinner-and-Song event celebrating the 60s on Sunday night in Mission Hills — get your reservations asap, and learn more about CSO’s new, first annual DAVID W SCOTT MEMORIAL VOCAL COMPETITION by clicking:
Happy October! Starting next Thursday, 10/3, ARTEMUSICA performs Rossini’s almost-rarely performed Stabat Mater — if you haven’t heard this gem, be sure to get to one of their three performances. It’s a treat.
The tickets aren’t cheap, but if you want to see baritone BRYN TERFEL at The Broad on 10/18, get your tickets asap. This consummate performer is one of our current living legends, and he doesn’t come to Los Angeles often. Get information and tickets by clicking:
Find yourself some cider and get in the mood for a lovely fall. Have a wonderful week, and thank you for supporting live singing!
