10-time Grammy-winning salsa singer Ruben Blades hits the Hollywood Bowl with a heck of an opening act -- Maestro Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic. The always entertaining Dudamel leads the Phil in a Latin-themed performance of Mexican composer Arturo Marquez's Danzons Nos. 4 and 8, as well as a series of Symphonic Tangos by award-winning Argentine Emilio Kauderer. Next up, singer-songwriter Blades takes the historic stage. This longtime favorite is not only a Latin jazz superstar who's recorded more than 50 albums, including 2014's Tangos, but he's also a Panamanian politician, Harvard Law grad and a well-respected actor who's starred in close to 40 films. He recently announced a farewell tour for 2015, so catch him while you can at this legendary outdoor amphitheater. Learn More

It would be respectful if people didn't text during the show! The light from phone is so distracting anf very rude! People in front of us didn't stop necking and carrying beyond that! It ws a show within a show! Times have changed, and not for the best either!!!!My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish & I'm In Therapy! info • Oct 25 2013 star this tip starred
Quotes & Highlights
“Quite simply the leading Irish violinist of her generation … Ms. Leonard managed to retain that natural directness of statement and sentiment which is her particular musical gift.” —Irish Times
The impetus for Camerata Pacifica’s November concert program is the Opus 11 Piano trio in D Major of Fanny Mendelssohn. Performed by violinist Catherine Leonard, cellist Cecilia Tsan and pianist Vicki Ray, this almost-unknown work will finally get the performance it deserves. Another unknown work, the 2nd Violin Sonata of the Scot, Sir John Blackwood McEwan, will open the program. A turn-of-the-century British treasure unearthed by Artistic Director Adrian Spence, the McEwan is romantic to its core.
George Crumb’s Night Music II opens the 2nd half of the concert. These brief but ethereal Nocturnes will leave a ghostly impression on the acoustic palate and should be savored before they’re swept away by the Opus 66, Piano Trio in C Minor of Felix Mendelssohn. As wonderful as his sister’s work is, it’s obvious why Felix became the world famous composer.
