LA Philharmonic Tickets for Less Than $15: True!

The T0yota Symphonies for Youth series is the perfect way to expose children to the greatness that is the LA Philharmonic without paying typical LA Phil prices. At less than $15 per ticket (usually $12 or so), children can not only participate in craft events before concerts, but they can sit in the audience & wach the LA Phil perform w/ a dynamic theatrical show that introduces kids to classical composers. Most performances are at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

LA Lotus Festival

The Los Angeles Lotus Festival will carry on with the festivities this year although the event was briefly postponed due to budget cuts in 2009. While there will be a festival, the popular attraction’s Dragon Boat Races have been canceled. In any case, this is a cultural fair that you won’t want to miss as LA’s rich Asian & Pacific Islander community offers a dynamic opportunity for cultural exchange.
