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.

Description

The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra presents an evening of great classical music — American-style.

The rags of Scott Joplin and James Reese Europe, and Michael Daugherty’s tongue-in-cheek look at American pop culture will set your toes tapping.

Golijov takes his inspiration from Yiddish lullabies, and jazz elements permeate the Stravinsky and the Ravel — the piano concerto also beloved for its achingly beautiful slow movement.

And watch for the side-splitting holiday surprise!

  • Stravinsky: Ragtime
