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..

Great evening. In addition to the four pieces, the orchestra played two short but rousing encores. It would be great to see the Jerusalem Symphony over here again.

Description

Founded in the 1940s as the Israel Broadcast Authority Radio Orchestra, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest and most important musical institutions in Israel. Under the tirelessly creative vision of music director Leon Botstein, the orchestra has gained world renown for innovative programming that integrates the bold spirit and multi-ethnic identity of Israel’s diverse population with the historical and cultural context of its ancient capital.

In a fascinating program exploring the American Jewish diaspora, the orchestra and Grammy-nominated violinist Robert McDuffie make their Royce Hall debut, performing Erich Walter Sternberg’s The Twelve Tribes of Israel, Bernstein’s Serenade, and Copland’s Symphony No. 3.
