Christ Church Cathedral Choir, Oxford University, Oxford, UK

Christ Church Cathedral Choir is 500 years old, yet is justly famous for the youthfulness of its sound and its daring and adventurous musical programming. Unique in the world as both Cathedral and College Choir, the intimate acoustic of its musical home has given it a relationship with early sacred music and the rhythm and vigour of contemporary idioms which is second to none.

Admission: $40

Estrada Brothers Latin Jazz Band

The group originated in the mid-1950s as the family project of three brothers, Ruben, Henry, and Angel Estrada. Growing up in Oxnard, California, a largely agricultural town located about midway between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, the Estradas absorbed a wide variety of popular West Coast sounds. But it was the melding of Latin rhythms, jazz harmonies, and improvisation taking place in the music of Stan Kenton, Tito Puente, and especially Cal Tjader that inspired the brothers to put together their own band.

Admission: Casa Members $20; Non-members $25; Students under 18, $15
