Hello members! As an eager beaver newly deputized event organizer I'd like to invite members to enjoy the concerts of the Pasadena Symphony Orchestra at the Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena.
The first concert in 2014 takes place on January 11, 2014. Concerts are usually at 2 PM and 8 PM on Saturdays. I've chosen the 8 PM performances for meetups, as this time might be easier for members (and it gives the performers a chance to "warm up" at 2 PM before we reap the rewards and enjoy them at 8PM!).
The hall is a beautiful concert venue owned by a religious organization. Parking is $10 in an adjacent lot.
The program for the first concert includes the Chopin Piano Concerto #1 in E minor, with pianist Umi Garrett as soloist.
It is followed after intermission by Dvorak's Sixth Symphony. The conductor is Nicholas McGegan.
For more information on Umi, check out her website: http://www.umigarrett.com/home
Nicholas McGegan needs no introduction. A world-renowned conductor, specializing in the early music repertoire, with many CD recordings under his belt, he has conducted in LA frequently. Last season, he delighted the audience with a wonderful Mahler Fourth Symphony. http://nicholasmcgegan.com/
