Ho / Los Angeles Times) Also By Mark Swed Los Angeles Times Music Critic September 26, 2013, 5:16 p.m. Gustavo Dudamel will do it again. He will begin his fifth season as Los Angeles Philharmonic music director like he did his first — offeringa free concertwith the Youth Orchestra LA, which he founded with the L.A. Phil, before going on to lead a very tony gala at Walt Disney Concert Hall. The big occasion for this year will be a celebration of Disneys 10th anniversary. What will be different, though, is that the free concert at 4 p.m. Sunday will, this time, be at Disney Hall, not the Hollywood Bowl. Since the tickets have already been distributed, the program will also be shown on a free live simulcast in Grand Park. PHOTOS: Gustavo Dudamel career in pictures What will also be different — besides the fact the YOLA players are considerably more advanced and worldly than they were five years ago (some even accompanied the L.A. Phil to London earlier this year) — is that for the first time the young musicians will sit side by side with the L.A. Phil for a performance of the bounding, folk song-inspired fourth movement of Tchaikovskys Second Symphony, known as The Little Russian, as well as for Marquezs just as upbeat and even more danceable Conga del Fuego. What wont likely change, though, is the sheer inspirational fervor Dudamel inspires in student musicians and the likelihood of tears in the eyes of even the hardest-bitten unsentimental music professionals in the audience who think theyve seen it all. As an added bonus, Herbie Hancock will start the afternoon with a selection of solo works. ALSO:

Concert to benefit restoration of Torrrington’s historic Skee’s Diner

On Wednesday, the South Windsor natives dream came true. I would tell my best friend Olivia all the time that I was going to sing on stage with (Michael Buble), Hebert said. Its always been such a dream of mine. Wednesday night marked Heberts fourth Michael Buble concert, and her seats at Hartfords XL Center were closer to the stage than she had ever been before. Herbert figured, being so close… nows my chance. So she made a sign that read, Let Me Sing With You Mr. Buble! and brought it along with her to the concert. Buble obliged and invited Hebert on stage to sing with him. He even let her pick the song. I dont even remember going up there, Hebert said. She said that she and her godmother, who attended the concert with her, were in complete shock for the rest of the night. Hebert chose to sing Feeling Good, a song she had been practicing during the days leading up to the concert, just in case she was asked to sing on stage.

The plan is to restore it while in storage and then move it to its new home.

The Torrington Historic Preservation Trust will hold the fundraiser at 7 p.m. at P. Sams Bar and Grill , located at 1301 Torringford West St. Doors open at 7 p.m. and at 8 p.m. Brown, a four-person rock band, from Harwinton will perform. During the bands intermissions, a presentation will be held showing the progress of Skees transformation and the warehouse where its occupying. Were still working with the city, working closely with the mayor on a new location for the diner we basically have an agreement in principle to potentially structure a lease in the city next to the Torrington library, in the municipal parking lot, said Edward Cook, president of the preservation trust and organizer behind the rebuilding of Skees Diner. Before the 1955 flood there was a diner there before the Torrington Grill. The treasured Skees Diner was removed from the city this past April and has been set in a large warehouse so it is out of the weather and can be examined and worked on without distractions from outside sources. Restorations have been going well, said Cook. Weve removed the panels, removed some of the inside structure because were just trying to get it down to the base frame to check the conditions. After the assessment was completed, the diagnosis was that the diner needs woodwork, metal work and tile work as part of the renovations.
