» Goldenvoice acoustic evening with Trey Anastasio, 7:30 p.m. Dec. 5:

» CAMA presents a free community concert celebrating CAMA AT 100 with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, 8 p.m. Dec. 11.

Founded in 1968 as an artistic outlet for the recording industry’s most gifted musicians, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra has spent the ensuing five decades methodically burnishing its reputation as one of the world’s top ensembles.

A musical force in his own right, virtuoso mandolin soloist Avi Avital has emerged as one of the foremost ambassadors for his instrument. This concert will see them team up for an all-Vivaldi program, including two of the Venetian Baroque master’s concertos for two violins.

No Vivaldi program would be complete without The Four Seasons, his beloved collection of violin concertos, to be performed with Avital on mandolin. Click here for tickets or call the box office, 805-899-2222.

» State Street Ballet presents The Nutcracker oat 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Dec. 15 and 2 p.m. Dec. 16.

State Street Ballet brings this annual favorite to The Granada Theatre. Opera San Luis Obispo Grand Orchestra and the students of Gustafson Dance join State Street Ballet’s professional dancers in this celebration of the magic of the holiday season.

Through virtuosic dancing and opulent sets and costumes, the story of Clara and her Nutcracker Prince delights audiences of all ages. Three performances only. Click here for tickets or call the box office, 805-899-2222.

» The Santa Barbara Symphony’s New Year's Eve Pops Performance, Dancing in the Street: The Music of Motown and More, 8:30 p.m. Dec. 31.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
