Pop culture on opening night




It's Gustavo Dudamel's third opening night at the Disney Hall, and joining him will be...Herbie Hancock. Playing "his own version" of Rhapsody in Blue.

It's an all-Gershwin program, in fact. KUSC is broadcasting--and so is NPR. The musicianship is excellent. I'm a little distressed though to see that the pops season doesn't end at the Bowl anymore. Classical musicians all over the world would love to play here on opening night.
