One of the leading chamber groups performing today, the Echo Award-winning Scharoun Ensemble Berlin features the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra's principal string and woodwind musicians. For this concert, these profoundly talented musicians will perform pieces written by Mozart and Beethoven, putting Alexander Bader's clarinet work on display. Septet, Op. 20 is one of Beethoven's most popular works and one of the finest septets ever written. The Scharoun Ensemble will also perform Mozart's Quintet for Clarinet in Strings, one of the composer's most beautiful chamber pieces. Learn More

Be there for the birth of, not one, but four new ballets created as part of the intensive 3-week process of the National Choreographers Initiative. Director Molly Lynch invites four noted choreographers to participate, as well as sixteen professional dancers from ballet companies across the country. NCI is a southern California project with national influence. In its first four years, NCI has helped 16 choreographers to develop new works. A dozen of the pieces begun here have gone on to be premiered or developed further and performed elsewhere in the U.S. and abroad. The project culminates in a public performance showcasing the excitement of new creation. It’s also an opportunity to hear the choreographers talk about their concepts and ideas and for you to ask questions and participate in the discussion. It’s a mind-expanding excursion into the world of dance.
