Which Mill? Why, the Old Mill—the one in San Marino that’s been there since 1816 and is the oldest commercial building in Southern California. It was a grist mill. Now, it’s an historic treasure, as well as a venue, playing host to a California Art Club gallery, Bar Association Dinners and the titular summer concert series, now in its eighth season. Ensemble groups from the California Philharmonic Orchestra will play three dates on the Mill’s Pomegranate Patio, the first of which is this Saturday. They’ll be playing the young Beethoven’s Septet in E-flat major, scored originally for clarinet, horn, bassoon, violin, viola, cello and contrabass. It’s a rockin’ tune.
