David Rambo was our guest for the most recent Westside Connections concert at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica. He cited the music of Sibelius as the inspiration for his newest play, and concertmaster and series curator Margaret Batjer selected pieces by Samuel Barber and Leoš Janáček to fill out the program, which was followed by a Q and A session.

If you missed this one there’s still one more Westside Connections concert this season, on April 29, with renowned director Peter Sellars as our special guest.
