College, university and symphony performances also should return to their regular schedules by the end of the month. In the Fall/Winter/Spring, the site usually is updated on the first and third Thursdays of the month. Updates this month will be on January 10 and 17. Don't forget to check the site's Facebook and Twitter pages for the most recent updates, the latest news and additional information too!

WINTER CONCERT PAGE PHOTOS: At the end of January and in February, Lunar New Year celebrations will take place throughout Southern California. Chinese lanterns, such as the ones pictured above, will undoubtedly be part of many of those celebrations. This past holiday season, from October 26 - January 6, the Los Angeles Arboretum hosted the "Moonlight Forest," a Lantern Art Festival. However, in this festival, lanterns reflected three themes: Nature (with shimmering flowers, magnificent animals and figures from Chinese legends), Children's Garden, and Chinese Culture. Created by skilled artisans from China's Sichuan province, the lanterns were presented by the Arboretum in partnership with Tianyu Arts and Culture to celebrate the time-honored tradition of lantern art. Perhaps even Santa will be part of the celebration if they return again in 2019! Images of a few of the many lanterns which were placed throughout the Arboretum grounds and viewed at night are included on the concert pages.

ONE FINAL THOUGHT ON THE CONCERTS: All of the concerts in the listings are free to the general public, and there are some truly outstanding programs. However, many of the groups and organizations sponsoring these concerts incur substantial costs in bringing them to you year after year. Donations which allow them to continue their tradition of bringing quality music to the general public at no charge are appreciated.


. . . AND ONE REQUEST FOR VISITORS: Survey forms are sometimes passed out at concerts/event venues, and the question "How did you hear about this event?" is often asked. If you are attending an event you found on this site and receive such a form, it would be much appreciated if you let them know that you found the information on www.dorothyswebsite.org. Thank you!
