Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.

I wore Jeans and a Jacket. It was one of those audiences where it would be difficult to underdress..

Our entire group loved this musical troika. Three magnificant artists performed at the top of their game. Each had the opportunity to share several samples of his personal "exotica" as well as to mesmerize the audience as two or three played in...continued

Absolutely extraordinary and a must-see for all music lovers! These virtuosos played for 2 straight hours with such skill and emotional that I think the audience was exhausted! If you have a chance to see them, GO!

Description

All virtuosos on their respective instruments, Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain and Edgar Meyer move with ease among the musical arenas of bluegrass, world and classical. Fleck virtually reinvented the image of the banjo: he’s been nominated in more different Grammy categories than anyone in history, winning eight times. Stellar bassist, composer and MacArthur Award-winner Meyer has carved out a singular niche, recording with leading classical performers and adding to the repertoire of his often-overlooked instrument. The classical tabla playing of Hussain has made him a national treasure in his native India and a leader in world music globally. These three perform live together for the first time on this concert tour featuring original music from a forthcoming CD.
