“Three Wishes” — Southern California Vocal Events
LAURI D GOLDENHERSH’s Weekly Highlights
Choices in SoCal are always tricky, and of course this week’s “three wishes” are in no particular order. Here are few things that might tempt you to head out this weekend:
First, there’s one more performance of ‘Carmina Burana’, a perennial audience-pleaser, with the combined forces of the HUNTINGTON BEACH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, THE WESTMINSTER CHORALE / PAUL DELGADO SINGERS, and SOUTH BAY CHILDREN’S CHOIR. Catch the enduring Orff extravaganza in Torrance on Friday night (and get your tickets now, as they’re $6 cheaper in advance!). Click here
Second, You can still catch PACIFIC OPERA PROJECT’s ‘Super Flute’ production of Mozart’s ‘The Magic Flute’ this weekend, and gamers, in particular, won’t want to miss it. This astoundingly creative company has done it yet again, reinventing a classic and beloved opera with a very surprising twist. This time, it’s video game tie-ins! The buzz has been huge, and audiences have been utterly charmed by last weekend’s premiere performances. (Don’t worry, the connection is visual, not aural: none of the singers will sound like Pac-Man. I hope.) Read more and get your tickets
–> You can also see this opera via live stream on Sunday! Watch POP’s Facebook page for details
Finally (aka Third), get thee to the Music Center on Wednesday night 3/13, as two of opera’s great superstars are coming to DTLA for a joint recital, hosted by LA PHIL. The amazing LAWRENCE BROWNLEE and ERIC OWENS, both favorites in opera towns worldwide, will join forces for a night that is not to be missed. Get details here, and get your tickets pronto!

Thought we were done? Ha!
ANNOUNCEMENT: While you’re still with me, please be aware that the Lauri’s List calendar is now fully “self-serve”, which means you can load your vocal-related events on your own, have more control over how your event looks, and you won’t have to wait for an admin to get to it anymore! It’s easy: just go to http://www.laurislist.com/calendar and click the “Submit event” button at the top. Let me know if you have questions, and feel free to load your events as soon as you have the information available. (You can always send us changes if you need help with editing later.) I look forward to seeing what you’re all planning!
Here’s to great music…
