Not really quiet

Lauri D. Goldenhersh’s Weekly Highlights

With just a few events, it’s still a big, beautiful week:

Classical Revolution LA and Opera On Tap LA  join forces for the first time on Saturday night — these are two groups that regularly perform classical music and opera in bars and restaurants, expanding the presence of the art form and generally encouraging a good time for all.  Catch this mélange of indie classical performers at Silverlake Lounge, starting at 6pm.  For details, click here.

2013-10-5_vox_clipIf coffee is more your thing, you’ll find grilled cheese goodness from one of LA’s most popular food trucks, as well as java, wine and beer at the season’s “Kickoff Koffeehouse” from Vox Femina in Highland Park.  Come hungry —  Click here

Did you miss tonight’s performance of Rossini’s Stabat Mater from ArteMusica?  There are still two left! This project was our Hidden Gem last week — learn more on the Singerpreneur blog by clicking here.

2013-10-02_VisionsSpeaking of Hidden Gems, USC’s ‘Visions and Voices‘ series has proven a steady showcase of sparkling talent across several disciplines, and Monday’s concert is exemplary, with Voices off the Walls, Music off the Walls, an event designed to respond to and coordinate with the current exhibition at the campus’  USC Fisher Museum of ArtDrawn to Language explores the connection between literature and visual art, and pianist Victoria Kirsch curates a musical program that takes the line of thought one step further, with vocal and instrumental music inspired by the artwork in the exhibition.  Performers include mezzo Nandani Sinha, baritone David Castillo, violinist Kevin Kumar  and Selma Holo, director of the USC Fisher Museum, serving as reader.  Watch for our feature in tomorrow’s Next 7 (we’ll echo it on the blog).  The concert is free, but reservations are required.  To learn more, check out the calendar listing — click here.

This is the last “quiet” week for a while — we can already feel the performance energy as organizations and ensembles are busy, busy, all over SoCal.  Have a wonderful week, everyone, and thank you for supporting live singing!
