Exploring Mars, Exciting Jazz, And Superlative Piano Come To The Conrad In November 2022

From the exploration of the Red Planet to the excitement of great jazz in the intimate cabaret space of The JAI and world-class piano in The Baker-Baum Concert Hall, La Jolla Music Society (LJMS)’ 54th season continues in November with a series of thrilling events at The Conrad in La Jolla.

Nat Geo Live Exploring Mars

November 3 | Exploring Mars

The National Geographic Live touring North America speaker series returns on Thursday, November 3, 2022, with NASA’s principal mechanical engineer Kobie Boykins, winner of the prestigious NASA Exceptional Service Medal, one of the highest honors given to NASA employees and contractors.

A supervisor of the mobility and remote sensing teams for the Mars rover Curiosity, Boykins has monitored headline-making studies, including proof of the former presence of water on Mars indicating the Red Planet could have supported life. Boykins will share his boundless enthusiasm for unraveling the mysteries of outer space and recount the latest exciting chapter of Mars exploration, live in The Baker-Baum Concert Hall, with his presentation of “Exploring Mars.”

Time For Three

November 5 | Time For Three

On Saturday, November 5, we kick off our series of concerts in The JAI with Time For Three, the exciting, genre-defying group that was a huge hit the first time they appeared with LJMS in 2015. Defying convention and boundaries, Time For Three stands at the busy intersection of Americana, modern pop, and classical music.

Their live show mixes various eras, styles, and traditions of Western music to create a new and captivating listening experience. Charles Yang (violin, vocals), Nicolas “Nick” Kendall (violin, vocals), and Ranaan Meyer (double bass, vocals) have found a unique voice of expression to share with the world.

The JAI series offers two opportunities to hear Time For Three in an intimate and relaxed ambiance, with table service for food and libations by Giuseppe’s at The Conrad.

Daniil Trifonov

November 10 | Daniil Trifonov

GRAMMY® Award-winning Russian pianist, Daniil Trifonov, an LJMS favorite, returns to The Baker-Baum Concert Hall on Thursday, November 10 in our Piano Series. Combining consummate technique with rare sensitivity and depth, Trifonov creates performances that inspire a perpetual source of awe.

The Times of London called him “without question the most astounding pianist of our age.” This lushly gorgeous program brings all the sweeping romance of Tchaikovsky and Scriabin as well as Ravel’s dramatic expressiveness, a perfect match for Trifonov’s passion and skill.

Emmet Cohen

November 20, Emmet Cohen

Sunday, November 20 sees the LJMS debut of the phenomenal jazz pianist and composer, Emmet Cohen and his trio, cabaret-style in The JAI. Winner of the 2019 American Pianists Association Jazz Award and a Cole Porter Fellow of the American Pianists Association, Cohen is in the vanguard of his generation’s advancement of music and the related arts.

Cohen’s self-produced show, “Live from Emmet’s Place,” is the most watched online jazz show in the world. He was featured nationally on Good Morning America on October 17 in conjunction with the release of his new album, Uptown in Orbit.
