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

One of those once-in-a-generation singers who has never followed in the footsteps of others, soprano Jessye Norman continues to build upon her own rich legacy as she brings joy, passion and her opulent sound to innovative recital performances and operatic portrayals around the world.

A 2006 recipient of the Grammy Awards’ Lifetime Achievement Award, Norman returns to Royce Hall after a breathtaking sold-out performance in 2005, performing an uplifting program celebrating love and the four seasons, including works by Brahms, Mahler, Schoenberg, Messiaen, Gershwin, Kurt Weill, Joseph Kosma, Richard Danielpour and more.
