The brainchild of L.A. County Parks and Rec and the Cal Phil conductor, Victor Vener, this summertime series has been selling out to al fresco music lovers since its inception. Indy and series tickets are available on the Great Lawn for table seating or BYO lawn chair; picnicking is encouraged, beginning at 5:30 p.m., with the performances (highlighted by Vener’s witty running commentary) starting at 7:30.
