The first time we heard Ozomatli was at Farnsworth Park’s small amphitheater in the foothills of Altadena. It was magical from the first note played. The crowd—mostly parents with the kids of all ages—was on its feet immediately, clapping, heads bopping, and feet moving. Before long, people were dancing in the aisles, kids filled the area down front, […]

Brahms “Unbound” But Not Unsung

Editor’s Note: Our thanks for the following official text, which explains this event better than we could ever do—as we love music, but have no formal knowledge or appropriate language.
