Beethoven Sings

Beethoven Sings

More often than not, performances of Beethoven predominately feature his instrumental work — which makes Pasadena Pro Musica’s upcoming concert of Beethoven choral pieces a rare opportunity to hear, live, an oft-neglected part of his corpus. The program, entitled Immortal Beloved, consists of the Missa in C, the Concert Aria: “Ah, perfido!” featuring solo soprano [...]

Going Native, Plant-wise

Going Native, Plant-wise

If you haven’t firmed up your weekend plans yet, try to work in a drive to Claremont. This pretty college town offers a darling downtown village, handsome residential architecture and landscaping for the Looky Lou in you. And it’s also home to the gardeners’ heaven, the wonderful Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden, a living laboratory [...]

Deep Space in Old Town

Deep Space in Old Town

Nothing less than the origins of the universe will be explored this weekend at One Colorado, as part of the 2009 Arts & Ideas Festival: Origins, a biennial collaboration between the city’s arts and science communities. You might not think a Saturday stroll around Old Town would help you answer such questions as “How Did [...]

David Plouffe (!) at All Saints via Vroman’s

David Plouffe (!) at All Saints via Vroman’s

David Plouffe: former campaign-manager to the King of America, and something of a king in his own right. The man Obama called “the unsung hero of this campaign” in his acceptance speech has been pretty well sung since then. And pretty well paid, too, including a reported seven-figure book deal for the just-published The Audacity [...]

The French in Young America

The French in Young America

Looking to brush up on your history and your French at the same time? A lecture this Friday at the Alliance Française de Pasadena will help you with both. Lucien Laude, besides being a professor at USC’s Doheny Eye Institute and a patent holder on “NANOSCALE SURFACE ACTIVATION OF SILICONE VIA LASER PROCESSING,” has a [...]

NPR Quiz Show at the Pasadena Civic

NPR Quiz Show at the Pasadena Civic

What’s the capital city of Djibouti? If you answered “Djibouti,” and aren’t just a Djiboutian ex-pat, you might want to get yourself down to the Pasadena Civic this Thursday (Friday is sold out) to be a part of the live studio audience of Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!, NPR’s weekly hour-long quiz program. Hosted by [...]

New at the Norton Simon

New at the Norton Simon

Portraiture enthusiasts be advised: starting October 30th, the Norton Simon will be running an exhibition entitled Gaze: Portraiture After Ingres. Bringing together nearly 150 works from the permanent collection, the exhibition traces portraiture from its classical orthodoxy in the Paris Salon to its place in the radical oeuvres of Picasso, Duchamp and Warhol. A minor [...]

Folk-Rock Legends at The Coffee Gallery

Folk-Rock Legends at The Coffee Gallery

Their last two shows sold out. Their next two probably will as well — not that surprising in a 49-seat venue. So if you have any intention of seeing Barry McGuire and John York when they play the Coffee Gallery Backstage this weekend, you should probably make reservations post haste. McGuire’s “Trippin’ the ’60s” tour [...]

“America’s Greatest Quartet” at Caltech

“America’s Greatest Quartet” at Caltech

With eight Grammys, 20-plus albums and more than 30 years as an ensemble under their belt, the Emerson String Quartet is easily one of the best and most prestigious in the nation. And on Sunday November 1st, they’ll be performing at Caltech’s Beckman Auditorium — for the eighth time. The program, presented by the Coleman Chamber [...]

Old Town Does Halloween

Old Town Does Halloween

Looking to try a new trick-or-treat route this year? Tired of your kids getting all the goodies? The Old Pasadena Halloween celebration beckons. From 4 to 7 p.m. on Halloween, some 75 Old Town establishments will be participating in store-to-store trick-or-treating: free candy for costumed youth and discounts for the grownups, probably in the form [...]
