After being established in 2011, All is Yar quickly became one of the most respected culture blogs based in Los Angeles.
It is now a leading source of opinionated, unbiased, and fiercely independent reviews and observations about music — especially classical music — with occasional musings and rants about drink, food, style, architecture, gadgets and more (. . . is it just me, or is this list is starting to sound like Maxim magazine’s original raison d’etre that they used to put on the top of every issue?).
All is Yar continues to expand its reach beyond its home base of Southern California. Published concert reviews include jaunts to the Ravinia Festival in Chicago and the New York Philharmonic in Avery Fisher Hall. The site has been quoted by The Cleveland Orchestra, the St. Louis Symphony, and many publications across North America and Europe. Additional forays to other cities will continue as time permits.

Howdy. I renewed my LA Phil subscription today, and checked out the orchestra’s current roster.
Andrew Bain is listed as on sabbatical and the associate first horn is vacant.
Changes in the brass, Wonder if Andrew is working elsewhere for a season?
