Free Tickets to Luckman Fine Arts!

FREE Tickets Available @ Crowell Library for Upcoming Luckman Fine Arts Performances:
  • May 14th Bodytraffic Dance Company;
  • May 21st Luckman Jazz Orchestra
Grab them while they last! Our generous friends at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex at Cal State L.A. are donating a limited number of free tickets to two upcoming performances. The tickets will go to Crowell Library cardholders in good standing who are San Marino residents and will be limited to two per library card number.

BODYTRAFFIC is a repertory dance company based in Los Angeles that serves as a vehicle for dancers, choreographers, visual artists, composers and musicians, providing all with an opportunity to experiment, create, and present new work. Their expanding repertoire includes works by Lillian Barbeito, Sarah Elgart, Alex Ketley, Andrea Miller, Laura Gorenstein Miller, Barak Marshall and Guy Weizman & Roni Haver. The company will perform a world-premiere by celebrated Belgian choreographer Stijn Celis. The performance is at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 14th.

On Saturday, May 21st also at 8:00 p.m., the LUCKMAN JAZZ ORCHESTRA will perform a tribute to Clifford Brown. Though his career lasted only four short years, Clifford Brown’s impact on the jazz world still resonates strongly today. With over 20 album credits to his name, in addition to numerous tributes by jazz superstars ranging from Benny Golson to Arturo Sandoval, Clifford Brown did in a few years what most could only dream of accomplishing in a lifetime.
