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 [...]

It’s Time to Run: Pasadena Marathon

It’s Time to Run: Pasadena Marathon

We’ve got a 13.1 sticker on our car that occasionally elicits a question, or even less often creates the question, “What half marathon did you run?” Of course, the Napa to Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon was survived so many years ago that it’s like a lovely memory, the pain of every step as the [...]

Levitt Pavilion’s Summer Concerts

Levitt Pavilion’s Summer Concerts

Most of us probably remember Donna Summer’s disco version: MacArthur’s Park is melting in the dark All the sweet, green icing flowing down Someone left the cake out in the rain I don’t think I can take ‘Cause it took so long to bake it And I’ll never have that recipe again Likening love to [...]

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

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 [...]

Michael Feinstein Leads the Pasadena Pops

To be named successor to the late Marvin Hamlisch of the Pasadena Symphony and Pops seems to have come as a surprise to “singer, pianist, and renowned interpreter of the American Songbook” Michael Feinstein.
