Renee Fleming & Susan Graham

Jan. 19: 8 p.m.

Walt Disney Concert Hall

It’s rare enough for soprano singers Renee Fleming or Susan Graham to grace an audience with their presence, but the two stellar sopranos are coming together on one night Downtown to perform. The program includes duets by composers Berlioz, Saint-Saens, Faure and Debussy. For those with a passion for opera, this evening filled with incredible singing will certainly be a night to remember.

Los Angeles Astronomical Society and the Los Angeles Sidewalk Astronomers will be holding a public star party to give curious star gazers and families a chance to look at the sun, moon and the visible solar system and try out various telescopes.

The Japanese American National Museum will be presenting the Giant Robot Biennale 3, its third show with the creative owner of Giant Robot, Eric Nakamura.
