Thursday Miscellany

Berkeley Playhouse (at the Julia Morgan Theater) has two weekends of performances of The Pirates of Penzance left, and the show sure looks like fun: "Not your traditional Pirates"....On Sunday, March 25, at the Italian Academy in NYC, Emmanuele Arciuli plays a recital that includes the US premiere of a work by Marcello Panni, Scelsi's Ka: Suite No. 10, Alban Berg's First Piano Sonata, and LvB Op. 110, aka, piano sonata No. 31.....This summer, the NY Philharmonic resumes its Concerts in the Park series, which I believe Alan Gilbert promised last year that they'd do. Dates are July 11 through 17 throughout the boroughs. Details are in this annoying PDF (guys, 1) PDFs are bad 2) having to comb through all that text to figure out where and when...can't you just put a nice block of concert info at the top?)....Matthias Goerne and Leif Ove Andsnes perform Mahler and Shostakovich at SF Performances on April 23. Still wondering whether my travel schedule will let me attend....Tickets have just gone on sale for the 2012 Oregon Bach Festival, which takes place in Oregon, but I'm not actually sure whether it's in Eugene or Portland. Oh, wait: the reason I can't tell is that events are in Eugene, Portland, and five other cities. Okay! Dates are June 29 - July 15, 2012, in any case....The LA Jewish Symphony celebrates its 18th (Chai - Life) birthday with several concerts...
