Chelsea Handler -- the irreverent host of the late night talk show Chelsea Lately and author of books like My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang and Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea -- sits down to discuss her latest book with Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow. An absurd and hilarious collection of travel essays, Uganda Be Kidding Me finds Handler detailing her exploits while on safari in Africa, attempting to kayak in the Bahamas and escaping from a German hospital on crutches. Following the conversation with Paltrow (which is sure to be filled with over-the-top tales, questionable travel tips and answers to pressing questions), Handler will be signing copies of her book.

Ignat Solzhenitsyn, conductor & piano
MOZART Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466
LUTOSŁAWSKI Musique funèbre (“Funeral Music”)
HAYDN Symphony No. 103 in E-flat major, “Drum Roll”
A free pre-concert lecture begins at 7:00pm.
Drum roll, please! The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra proudly presents a dramatic range of musical themes—from grandeur and majesty to poignancy and passion. Ignat Solzhenitsyn, principal guest conductor of the Moscow Symphony Orchestra and talented son of the famous Russian novelist, leads the Orchestra in Musique funèbre, Lutoslawski’s immensely powerful tribute to Bartók, and conducts the expressive Mozart Piano Concerto No. 20 from the keyboard. The concert ends with a bang — the long roll of the timpani announcing Haydn’s joyous 103rd Symphony, one of the composer’s finest masterpieces.
