They’re calling it “voting with your pocketbook musically.” The Pasadena Master Chorale (PMC) is opening its 5th season with “A Portrait of Benjamin Britten” on October 12th with “listen first, then pay” pricing. Tickets may be purchased for $0 online or through PMC members. Excuse me? you ask. Let us clarify. Ticketholders are invited to […]

Bernadette Peters POPS

Bernadette Peters POPS

She played the role of “Girl” in the TV movie The Christmas Tree…in 1958. Really? How can that be true? That’s 54 years ago. But, yes, Bernadette Peters was 10 years old when she received her first acting credit, and now she’s a veteran of the small screen, regarded on the big screen, and lauded […]

The Angeles Chorale at 1st United Methodist

The Angeles Chorale at 1st United Methodist

“A feast for the ears and balm for the soul.” In recent times, England’s royal family has without question functioned as a  kind of ongoing economic stimulus package for British tourism and the tabloid media. But long before the era of Charles and Diana sparked the frenzy of media coverage that led to the young […]

Summer Nights, L.A. Opera, & CA Phil

We’ve got music coming out our ears. This past weekend Pasadena was swarming with pedestrians hunting for the 150 free concerts that made up Make Music Pasadena. We could hear the music and fans during the silences as we sat in the intimate surroundings of the First United Methodist Church on Colorado Boulevard enjoying an […]

This Saturday, April 6th, the featured band will be Karmic, which teams Laura Baruch’s melody and lyrics with Peter Kastner’s rhythmic and melodic “genius.” Drummer/pianist Steve Aho and guitarist Blake Straus came on board in 2008.

Young Jazz Quartet for ArtNight

Young Jazz Quartet for ArtNight

As part of ArtNight in Pasadena, a remarkable quartet of young musicians who call themselves Solstice will be performing at a free concert in Old Pasadena early Saturday evening. (We know, ArtNight is a Friday-night event, but this fall it seems to have expanded to meander over three days.) The kids are all students at […]

Rhapsody in Bess

Rhapsody in Bess

The Pasadena POPS has quite the jazzy evening lined up for this Saturday. Pianist Alfredo Rodriguez, a native of Havana who was “discovered” by Quincy Jones at the Montreux Jazz Festival, will play Rhapsody in Blue. Actress and Tony-nominated vocalist Valarie Pettiford—best known perhaps for her role as Big Dee Dee Thorne on Half & […]

Snotty Scotty at the Rancho

Snotty Scotty at the Rancho

Known as the “unoffocial band of Pasadena’s Occasional Doo Dah Parade,” Snotty Scotty and the Hankies take pride in their slogan: Closing Pasadena’s finest bars since 1971. This Saturday night they’ll be playing their joyous, goofy blend of surf music, rock and garage-band party music at Altadena’s Rancho Bar, one of the funkier dives around […]

One Night Only: Glee!

One Night Only: Glee!

No, not that Glee, but another, better, finer Glee. Among the finest, in fact: the University of Michigan Men’s Glee Club, older than dirt (since 1859) and considered one of the best men’s choirs in the world. As part of their 150th Anniversary Tour, they’ll be appearing at Pasadena Presbyterian alongside the newest sub-choir of the […]
