The Harlem Quartet: Take the 'A' Train
The Harlem Quartet, a string quartet, will perform music by Wynton Marsalis, Chick Corea, Billy Strayhorn, Guido Gavilan, and Walter Piston. Join us at 6:30pm for a pre-concert mixer! The Harlem Quartet's mission is to advance diversity in classical music, engaging young and new audiences through the discovery and presentation of varied repertoire that includes works by minority composers.
Woodland Hills High School Principal Kevin Murray suspended last week after he was recorded allegedly threatening a 14-year-old special needs student saying "I'll knock your (expletive) teeth down your throat." Speaking through his attorney about the incident following a school board meeting, he admitted to being a disciplinarian but suggested there was more to the story as he was defending a female school employee being treated disrespectfully and called a derogatory term. At the board meeting many supported Murray, while others called for him to be fired.
