“Life of Mozart” with the Pasadena Master Chorale

“Life of Mozart” with the Pasadena Master Chorale

Mozart died before finishing his Requiem, one of those ironies that meet at the intersection of the personal and the historical and are ripe for good storytelling. This story well get a more documentary telling this Saturday, as the Pasadena Master Chorale performs portions of the Requiem (only those Mozart himself wrote) interwoven with readings [...]

Sunday Cassoulet at Vertical

Sunday Cassoulet at Vertical

If you follow the Pasadena restaurant scene, you probably know by now that Laurent Quenioux, currently of Bistro LQ and formerly of Bistro K, has taken over the kitchen at yet another bistro: Vertical. Quenioux is something of a wild man in the kitchen—eel sliders, anyone?—so it will be interesting to see how much autonomy [...]

Viewing Stones at the Huntington (Limited Time Only)

What are viewing stones, you ask? Well, when you get right down to it, they’re nice looking rocks, with beauty and/or subtlety of marking, shape, or color.

The Portrait, from Raphael to Modigliani

The Portrait, from Raphael to Modigliani

Someone at the Norton Simon has a thing for portraiture. It’s been a little over eight months since the close of their exhibit, Gaze: Portraiture After Ingres, which featured prominently a loan from the Frick, Jean-Auguste-Dominque Ingres’s Comtesse d’Haussonville, 1845. Now they’ve got another famous portrait on loan, this time from the National Gallery in [...]

The Artist and the Shopping Destination

The Artist and the Shopping Destination

Christmas is nigh. If you are like me, and I am like everybody else, then you are being bombarded with an unceasing barrage of holiday media: jingles, songs, trinkets, images. This is what the holidays are all about, and is delightful—up to a point. Sometimes one needs a break from all the reds and greens, [...]

Swing Dancing Saturdays

Swing Dancing Saturdays

Swing dancing: keeping poodle skirts in style since 1953. Don’t even think about coming to the Pasadena Ballroom Dance Association’s weekly Swing Dancing Saturday without one. You’ll be shunned. And who wants to be shunned? Not I, and probably not you. Even the men have to wear poodle skirts. Ok, not really. Swing dancing is [...]
