The talented young dancers of Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre perform two of ballet's most lyrical works: Sleeping Beauty and Paquita. With a sumptuous score by Tchaikovsky, a fairy tale plot of the triumph of good over evil and classical courtly style, Sleeping Beauty is the ideal production for Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's accomplished student dancers. Paquita is Petipa's virtuosic 1881 ballet about a young girl who saves the life of a young French officer, who himself is the target of a Spanish governor who plots to have him killed. A much-loved ballet that showcases the talents of its soloists, Paquita's choreography includes the famous Grand Pas Classique, the Pas de Trois and the Children's Mazurka. Learn More

This is a rare treat! Each of the members of this 20+ member orchestra is a accomplished musician in their own right, with resumes going back 40 years are more. Some took arrangements that Coltrane wrote for a quartet and expanded it for a big band.
THe Venue on the campus of Cal State LA probably holds only a couple thousand seats, so the acoustics are really good. Parking is only $3.00
There are few jazz musicians who have been revolutionary and as widely imitated as saxophonist, John Coltrane. Conductor Charles Owens and the Luckman Jazz Orchestra honor the legacy of John Coltrane in this tribute concert. His passion for experimentation helped his musical evolution take on a distinctive style. He became known for using the three-on-one chord approach, a method of playing multiple notes at one time. Coltrane’s influence extended far outside the realm of jazz. He hoped that his music could effect positive change in the world. More than thirty-seven years after his departure, Coltrane’s music can still be heard in movies, on television and radio.
