“Three Wishes” — Southern California Vocal Events
LAURI D GOLDENHERSH’s Weekly Highlights from the
Clickable Chamber Music Newsletter
A lot of “firsts” this time of year, including season openers, debuts and more. Here are three big, juicy ones:
Thursday night through Sunday 10/6, LA PHIL kicks off their centennial extravaganza as GUSTAVO DUDAMEL, still a rock star, leads a highly varied program and a whole lotta well-deserved hoopla. The program includes works by Gershwin, Copland, Barber and Previn, and features soloists JEAN-YVES THIBAUDET (piano) and the magnificent soprano JULIA BULLOCK. Get tickets if you can: this will be a very popular weekend for the “big house” in LA. Click here for details and ticket information
Sat 10/5 brings the season opener for TESSERAE BAROQUE ENSEMBLE, painting a musical “Portrait of Seventeeth-Century London” at All Saints’ Parish in Beverly Hills, starting at 8pm. The program will show influences of French and Italian music, of course, but will spotlight British composers Purcell, Blow, Locke and Tomkins. Get info
Sunday evening in the OC, try the first Evensong service of the year at St. Wilfrid’s Episcopal Church in Huntington Beach. The Evensong tradition is still a lovely way to wrap up a weekend, and services will be finished well in time for a leisurely dinner. (There’s also an Evensong at All Saints’, Beverly Hills, with info on the calendar.) To learn more about St. Wilfrid’s event, click here
More to come next week, and please make sure YOUR events are on the calendar, too! Happy listening, and thank you for supporting (and presenting) live music!
REMINDER: You should know that the Lauri’s List calendar is now “self-serve”, which means it’s up to presenters and performers to make sure their vocal events are on our calendar. But don’t worry, it’s easy!: Just go to laurislist.com/calendar and click the “Submit event” button at the top. Basic listings are still free, and we’d love to have your vocal-inclusive, classical-leaning doings in the mix.
