Another beautiful Sunday with Ian. Shopping the Santa Monica Farmers Market for our weekly provisions. Lovely music, warm sun, Ian in the petting zoo while I read. Followed by a nice beach bicycle ride to the park in Venice. We have so many wonderful communities in southern california where we can walk and enjoy our families and friends.

Santa Monica has a terrific volunteer program directory. It’s all about getting acquainted, giving back, meeting new people, learning new skills, sharing old ones. Remaining active, replacing loss and building a richer life by supporting our non-profit, human service agencies.

Take a look – you probably have a skill or special interest that you can share!!!

A Message from our President

I know firsthand that in order to thrive, families and individuals need a decent, quality and affordable place to call home and access to nutritious food. This is true in the best of times, and is especially true in economically challenging times.

Join us in building affordable housing communities where our children have a safe place to run and play, our elders live in comfort, and where organic and nutritious food is accessible and affordable to people of modest means!

These are the basics!

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” – Anne Frank

L.A. Philharmonic to host free Disney Hall concert in honor of Ernest Fleischmann

December 8, 2010 |  4:24 pm

Ernest The Los Angeles Philharmonic said Wednesday that it will host a free concert in honor of the late Ernest Fleischmann that will take place at Walt Disney Concert Hall on March 29. The concert will feature the L.A. Philharmonic New Music Group and conductors Esa-Pekka Salonen, Pierre Boulez and Lionel Bringuier.

Fleischmann, the orchestra’s former general manager, died in June at the age of 85. The orchestra said that tickets for the concert will be available to subscribers starting Feb. 22 by calling (213) 972-3051 or e-mailing specialevents@laphil.org.

Remaining tickets will be made available to non-subscribers starting Feb. 26 via the same contact information.

A spokeswoman for the orchestra said the program for the concert will be announced at a later date.

During his tenure as the head of the L.A. Phil, which lasted nearly 30 years, Fleischmann raised the stature of the orchestra to new levels in the classical world. He oversaw a revamping of the Hollywood Bowl and was instrumental in bringing in Salonen as music director in 1992.

Though he officially retired from his top position at the orchestra in 1998, Fleischmann continued to exert considerable influence over the organization until he died. He helped to oversee the orchestra’s move to Disney Hall in 2003 and continued to scout new talent.

Salonen stepped down from his post as music director of the L.A. Phil in 2009 and currently holds the title of conductor laureate. Bringuier serves as associate conductor of the orchestra.

Earlier this year, Salonen recalled to Times music critic Mark Swed that Fleischmann stood by him through his early difficult months at the L.A. Phil. “Crisis management always brought out the best in Ernest,” said the conductor.
