Since most of us are vaccinated, but awaiting for our booster shots, the best way to keep healthy and safe is to listen to music program via media channels, such as LACO's SummerFEST 2021.
However, I offer to meet in person in smaller groups, and discuss our programs at two wonderful locations: Luskin's Plateia at UCLA. Another is at the J. P. Getty. I can arrange a car pool for small groups of 4 of us to drive and spend some time at their galleries and their wonderful Restaurant, which is now operational.
Here are several photos from the collection of the J. P. Getty Museum in Brentwood.
|Edvard Munch, Starry Night (1893)|
We do not travel, but we can visit the Swiss Alps, French countryside, sail, and visit Norway.
|Giovanni Segantini: Spring in the Alps (1897)|

|Alfred Sisley (1839-1899): The road from Versailles to Saint-Germain|
We feel the outdoors, exploring the effects of changing light and weather
