    The Burbank Phil surpassed itself with a wonderful concert. The pairing of fashion from Woodbury College was an added treat.

    Excellent. The Burbank Symphony was superb.

    The concert was wonderful; however, I can't praise Janet enough for her excellent hosting. She really "plussed" the event! (To use Walt Disney's term.)

    Janet: I've tried to ring you this evening. (I've not heard a busy signal in years!!! How funny.) Last I heard from you is that we'd meet at Maritza's house, last I heard from her (last night) is that she and I should drive us to you. And Bill, and now Ina. I'm just needing some clarification as to what we're doing on Saturday vis a vie carpooling. I'm at Disneyland tomorrow so please call my home number and leave a message how this will all work out. Cheers!

    That sounds good, thanks, I will call him.

    Hello Ina, Glad you can join us. I will be picking up Bill Hinckley at his house in Glendale at 7:10 Saturday. If you are able to meet at his house, I will get you too. Please call him to coordinate: [masked]-5107. Thank you and see you then!

    Hi ! This is my first event with this classic concerts meetup, and I am excited about it! I live in Glendale, close to Pasadena. I would like to carpool for parking and for the pleasure of going together.

  • Christopher

    Janet, Maritza and I are car pooling and it seems collecting you on the way works perfectly. Best is to shift this to a phone conversation so we can sort out the details. I'm on[masked]

    Greetings, Concert-goers,
    Our event is happening this coming Saturday at 8:PM.
    Is anyone interested in carpooling with me? I live near Balboa Blvd.
    and I can drive or join you. Please let me know and we can arrange an easy access location to meet. I appreciate it.

    November 5, 2013

  • Janet Baker (formerly W.

    Hello Folks,
    Our event is coming up shortly. I hope you will all attend, or change your RSVP if you are unable to. For those who wish to car pool, please arrange to do so via these emails. We should plan to meet outside the entrance at 7:40PM so that we can "meet up" and get some seats together. I hope everyone enjoys the performance.

    I'm a college student in need of watch a free classical performance. This concert in Pasadena seems perfect. Can anyone verify address and lack of cost? Thank you

    October 9, 2013

    • Livia

      Hi Josh - click on the link above in the event description to see the address. You can e-mail Janet Widen, who is hosting the event, for details about that cost.

    As many of us live in the west SFV I think carpooling would be a great idea. I can fit 3 in my car. I'll be coming from Woodland Hills.

    October 8, 2013

  • Janet Baker (formerly W.

    Yes, folks,
    Let's plan on meeting at the main entrance around 7:40 so that we can find seats together.

    • Livia

      Hi Janet! I think some people were interested in setting up a carpool to this event. Maybe this can arranged on this comment section of the event page & everyone interested can decide on when/where to meet. Thanks!

    Since the concert is free, I am guessing that you pick your seat upon arrival. I have attended the Burbank Symphony on many occasions, held at Forest Lawn's Hall of Liberty, and you just go in and find a seat (like at a movie theater). You may want to arrive a bit early to guarantee a seat location that you like. I hope that helps.

    • Livia

      Hi Janet - I think it would be a good idea to gather people together at a meeting place prior to the event, so you can all sit together. 15 minutes prior to the event would be good.

      September 18, 2013

  • Leon

    Thank you for the invitation. Yes, I will be there, and just to mention, Saint-Saens is one of my favorite composers.

  • Paul H.

    Free is good. Sorry I can't make this. Thanks for posting this!

    No Instrumental Petting Zoo....hmmm. So much to interpret there.
    Thanks Livia for offering this even though you're to be out of town.
    Where do we obtain tickets and get good seats?
