Get the general admission. VIP is basically only to get you into the VIP area. If that's worth it to you because you don't want to be around the rest of the drunk rabble then I can understand, but for the price you can have twice as much beer.Oktoberfest at Santa Anita Park info • Sep 29 2014 star this tip starred
Make sure you look at the map before you go. We got lost. Took the Santa Anita exit from the 210, but then couldn't find the entrance to the track and drove a mile past. Weren't sure how to find the parking entrance as it was on the East end of the facilities. Should have gotten off at the next exit.Cal Phil at the Race Track travel • Sep 21 2014 star this tip starred

The venue was fantastic. My slight dissatisfaction comes from the Cal Phil. We went for the "Movie Masterpieces" night - and when they played film and tv soundtracks they were great (they even had an amazing mash up of some scores), but they spent...continued

America’s unique story has inspired composers worldwide, who continue to have a particular fascination with the sounds of the Old West. Whether it’s the unforgettable sound of Ennio Morricone’s music from The Good, The Bad & The Ugly, Elmer Bernstein’s thrilling theme from The Magnificent Seven, Aaron Copland’s ballet Billy The Kid or the stirring strains of How The West Was Won, composers have given voice to our country’s heritage and landscape. And what’s an evocation of the Old West without a trip south of the border? El Salón Mexico, Copland’s musical depiction of a village bar and its compelling dance rhythms is a perpetual delight. Our musical journey across America ends with a trip from the small towns of Illinois to the battleground of Gettysburg as we perform Lincoln Portrait, Copland’s heartfelt tribute to one of our greatest presidents, with a special guest narrator.

Music has the ability to transport you to worlds seen and unseen, astounding or frightening, whether known or only discoverable in the imagination. Maestro Vener has assembled a collection of music that travels from under the sea to mountaintops and beyond, with your wildest dreams as the only limit. Visit the African savannah with music from The Lion King, a fantastical hidden castle in France with Beauty & The Beast, tour the waves and the shore with The Little Mermaid and the imaginary realm of evil King Kashchei in Igor Stravinsky’s ballet music from The Firebird. But don’t try to over-reach your abilities, as The Sorcerer’s Apprentice did! Joining Maestro Vener and Cal Phil are the acclaimed Cal Phil Chorale, under the direction of Marya Basaraba. What’s more, at the Music Center’s Walt Disney Concert Hall, organist Philip Smith joins the orchestra in Bach’s haunting Toccata and Fugue in d minor.

Break out the popcorn! It’s a concert full of bravery, laughter, peril and more as Cal Phil roams through 150 years of music from the greatest cinematic adventures ever. Explore new worlds with music from Star Trek, battle an alien invasion in Independence Day and play the dangerous Game of Thrones. Follow the adventures of Babe as we tackle Saint-Saëns’ Organ Symphony. Pirates of the Caribbean will have you walking the plank The Red Violin transports you across centuries and around the globe spreading joy, sorrow and inspiration in equal measure and you’ll want to build a snowman when we perform highlights from Frozen.
August 23, 2014: Broadway & Bolero
Spanish rhythms take the lead in our season finale, with music from and inspired by Spain and Argentina. Follow Eva Peron on her journey from obscurity to a legend in her own time, through Andrew Lloyd Webber’s classic musical Evita, with Broadway sensations Randal Keith (back by popular demand) and Joan Almedilla. Be hypnotized by classical music’s sexiest masterpiece: Ravel’s Boléro. Feel the magic of flamenco that permeates Rodrigo’s beloved Concierto de Aranjuez as Adam Del Monte, noted classical and Flamenco guitarist, brings it to life before your very ears. And speaking of magic, Emmanuel Chabrier’s España is one of the most enchanting tone poems ever written. We have even more destinations on the concert’s itinerary, visiting a back alley where a bevy of Cats as they tell their life stories for all and sundry to hear. And, if that’s not enough, we’ll take a detour to 1920s Chicago for murder, mayhem and celebrity madness. Talk about a transatlantic tour de force!
