John Zorn, 2006 MacArthur Fellow, composer, arranger, producer, and multi-instrumentalist presents a series of 10 chamber works in select permanent collection galleries at LACMA on Saturday, May 2, from 10 am to 3 pm in celebration of the museum’s 50th anniversary.
Over the course of five hours, ensembles consisting of solo instrumentalists, duos, vocal trios, and string quartets perform selections from Zorn's vast catalogue in spaces shared with works of art. JACK Quartet, Kenny Wollesen, Dave Lombardo, William Winant, Tony Arnold, and others perform a different set every half hour in the Ahmanson and Hammer Buildings, creating poignant counterpoints with compositions hand picked by Zorn himself for their sonic and ethereal resonance with works by Tony Smith, Jackson Pollock, Paul Klee, and others.

For Angelenos who can’t make it to Louisville for this year’s Kentucky Derby, the recently new mid-century, modern-inspired Brentwood steakhouse Baltaire will be offering a viewing party for those who want to watch the greatest two minutes in sports!
On Saturday, May 2, patrons can view the race on Baltaire’s large projector screen in the bar and lounge as they enjoy the traditional Derby cocktail the Baltaire Julep, a bespoke take on the traditional mint julep, which is customizable based on the guest’s desired spirit. Executive Chef Travis Strickland will also be offering a specialty elevated take on the Hot Brown, the race’s classic Southern sandwich. Guests are encouraged to dress in their best Derby wear such as big hats, summer dresses, and 1920s style suits and bow-ties. The full lunch, dinner, and beverage menus will also be available.
