Here’s how this week’s arts and culture piece begins:
For years during the 1990s when I lived in Koreatown, I’d
attend the Sunday afternoon Bing Theater classical music concerts at LACMA.
After almost a quarter of a century, the concerts have now moved a couple of miles east, to St. James Episcopal Church on Wilshire Boulevard and St. Andrew’s Place. Part of the larger “Great Music at St. James” series, the programs are free, open to the public, and start at 6 pm.
You can go to kusc.org for weekly downloads of Sundays Live. But why not make the trek, at least once, and take in the whole experience?
On December 29, I attended a concert featuring The Hollywood Piano Trio: Roberto Cani on violin, Robert deMaine on cello, and Inna Faliks on piano. The occasion was the celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday.
Free parking is available across from the church at 3926 Wilshire Blvd. The church is also close to the Wilshire/Western stop on the Metro Purple Line.
