Back in January of this year I had the honor of interviewing Esa-Pekka Salonen for the Valley Sun. My intention at that time was to make what the Philharmonic does at Disney Hall and at the Hollywood Bowl less of a mystery and a little more accessible to us, the readers of the Valley Sun. I truly believe that "knowledge is power" (Ipsa Scientia Potestas Est), Sir Francis Bacon (1597). Esa-Pekka Salonen is one of the most famous and sought after conductors in the world. There has been a lot of worldwide attention focused on Salonen and his successor as music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Gustavo Dudemel.

The Los Angeles Children?s Chorus (LACC) and the Los Angeles Master Chorale will appear as guest artists with the Los Angeles Philharmonic to mark Esa-Pekka Salonen?s final appearance at the Hollywood Bowl as the orchestra?s music director on Thursday, Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. The combined forces will perform Mahler?s monumental Symphony No. 8, ?Symphony of a Thousand,? in which vast vocal forces are used as instruments. While Symphony No. 8 is considered Mahler?s grandest composition, it is rarely heard due to the large performance resources required.

What do you have planned for this weekend? Could I suggest a family activity that would interest and benefit the whole family? It is on a par, as far as expenses go, with any other activity in the area, including dinner and a movie or a local sporting event. My wife and I have lived in La Cañada for the past 13 years. We love Southern California and are especially fond of this community. I am a violist and my wife Stacy is a violinist. We both play in the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Brrrr. It has been a chilly week. Some of the folks around here are bundling up with coats, scarves and gloves as they dash hither and thither. We certainly aren’t used to temps much below 65 so this is pretty unusual winter weather. The other day a few snowflakes landed on my black jacket and I swear visions of making snow angels danced through my head. I was hoping that it would really snow as it certainly did many years ago. But alas, it was not to be. However the cold weather has stuck around, giving us more of a wintry ambience.
