San Francisco Symphony Concertmaster Alexander Barantschik leads the orchestra in an irresistible program featuring works by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Britten and Piazzolla. Following a lovely early Mozart Divertimento, Barantschik takes center stage in Mendelssohn's D minor Violin Concerto, one of the Romantic master's finest creations and a delightful surprise for concertgoers who only know its more famous sibling. Britten's gorgeous Simple Symphony salutes the composer's centenary, and the program concludes with the sultry music of another 20th-century master: Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla, the "King of Nuevo Tango." Inside Music, an informative talk with Laura Stanfield Prichard, begins one hour prior to the concert. Learn More
We used to drive to the Bowl and have that awful experience with traffic. Thanks to our daughter who has used the Sherman Oaks bus in the past, we all gathered at the Fashion Square parking lot, rode the bus to and from the Bowl, arrived for our picnic without stress.travel • Jul 12 2013 star this tip starred

My wife and I are in our seventies; we used to go to the Hollywood Bowl with our kids, and grandkids, at least several times during the season. We haven't been to the bowl for years--in part because we moved out of the LA area, and have been traveling a lot for our work--but now we are back in the area, Santa Clarita. Prompted by Gil Shaham and Michael Tilson Thomas concert, I got tickets thru Goldstar for our daughter, two grandchildren and boyfriend, and an old friend who is a classical music fan--and we all went last night, had a great picnic beforehand, and enjoyed one of the best concerts I have ever experienced at the bowl (and that includes Isaac Stern's 50th Birthday at the Bowl). We had a fabulous time, and what made it so much fun was to see grandkids who are of that early 20s generation, being enraptured by all of the music, not just Mr. Shaham.
