After seeing a concert featuring Vadim Repin, the late virtuoso performer and conductor Yehudi Menuhin commented that he was simply the best and most perfect violinist that I have ever had the chance to hear. A child prodigy who began playing violin at the age of 5, Repin has achieved a level of artistry that has won him international respect and acclaim. Join us for an evening that promises to soar with Repins artistry.

Dubbed "The Ambassador of the Great American Songbook," Grammy-nominated artist Michael Feinstein is considered one of the premier interpreters of American standards. He is a multi-platinum-selling, five-time Grammy-nominated recording artist who as a young man was introduced to Ira Gershwin by the widow of legendary concert pianist/actor Oscar Levant. Through Gershwin he met his next-door neighbor, Rosemary Clooney, and his role as the champion of American song was sealed. This concert returns the artist to Los Angeles, the site of his early career.
