The Fauré Requiem & Other Lenten Treats

The Fauré Requiem & Other Lenten Treats
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

Another free classical music concert in a religious setting for your consideration: the Fauré Requiem, “one of the monuments of choral literature,” along with works by Jean-Jules Amable Roger-Ducasse, Charles Villiers Stanford, and Anton Bruckner—motets, mostly. The occasion (although does anyone really need an occasion to do the Fauré Requiem?) is Lent, which as everyone […]

Ebony Meets Ivory: Piano Adventures

Ebony Meets Ivory: Piano Adventures

The words “Piano Adventures” appear exactly nowhere in the official description of Ebony Meets Ivory, the real subtitle of which is “With Special Guest Sandra Tsing Loh,” which, while perhaps more enticing, is much less descriptive, at least as regards the nature of Ebony’s introduction to Ivory. What this event actually is is the latest […]

LitFest Pasadena: Another Plug!

LitFest Pasadena: Another Plug!

Editor’s Note: Big rain is expected this weekend, so the inaugural LitFest Pasadena, which was going to be largely outdoors at Central Park, has been postponed until Saturday, May 12th. Look for the same great panels, events, signing, and children’s activities. We’ll be there in May! There’s already a fairly thorough description of LitFest higher […]

ArtNight! Again!

ArtNight! Again!

What could be better than free admission to an excellent local museum on a beautiful Friday night? How about free admission toseveral excellent local museums. And to a bunch of other arts-oriented venues. And free shuttles running from stop to stop. And fancy food trucks. And live music. And did we mention it’s all free (except […]

L.A. Raw Film Night at the PMCA

The PMCA is running a pretty kickass exhibition right now: L.A. Raw: Abject Expressionism in Los Angeles 1945 – 1980, from Rico Lebrun to Paul McCarthy. This Sunday is L.A.

Bringing Art Out Into the Open

Bringing Art Out Into the Open

The city of Pasadena is taking art to the streets. Nine works of art have been installed in each of the city’s council districts as part of the inaugural Rotating Public Art Exhibition that’s described as the public’s “outdoor art gallery.” Cultural Nexus (part of the city’s Cultural Master Plan) is a way to “enliven […]

Chekhov Adaptation at Boston Court

Chekhov Adaptation at Boston Court

If you are a Chekhov buff, you know his short story “Ward 6.” If you are a local theater buff, you know Boston Court (of course) and probably Theatre Movement Bazaar. BC and TMB have collaborated on an adaptation of “Ward 6,” which they’re calling “The Treatment,” a piece of “movement-based storytelling” about a complacent […]

Norwegian and Danish Boys Choirs at the Pasadena Presbyterian Church

Norwegian and Danish Boys Choirs at the Pasadena Presbyterian Church

You’re probably wondering, connoisseurs of Norwegian and Danish boys choirs that you are, which Norwegian and Danish boys choirs we’re referring to. Well, you’ll be pleased to know, I think, fans of Norwegian and Danish boys choirs that you are, that it’s Vor Frue Kirkes Drenge-Mandskor and Vanse Guttekor-Deo Gloria. They’re good. They’re completing a […]

The TACIT Rover at Caltech

The TACIT Rover at Caltech

Not an interstellar rover, like you might expect from Caltech, but a theatrical production. TACIT, or Theater Arts at the California Institute of Technology, led by Brian Brophy, regularly puts on good shows. Next up is The Rover, written in 1667 by Aphra Behn, England’s first professional female playwright, who was also a spy. This […]

The King of Melody

The King of Melody

In 1947, composer Enrst Krenek dismissed Franz Schubert (1797-1828) as “lucky,” and his work as “pleasing tunes…lacking the dramatic power and searching intelligence which distinguished such ‘real’ masters as Bach or Beethoven.” Urged by a fellow composer to actually study Schubert’s songs, Krenek eventually did an about-face and declared that Schubert “exhibited a great wealth […]
