Michael Feinstein and the Pasadena POPS will kick off their popular outdoor summer concert series at the Los Angeles County Arboretum on Saturday, June 7, with “Feinstein’s Favorites.” This will be a showcase of music by Harry Warren, Richard Rodgers, Nelson Riddle, Henry Mancini, Alfred Newman and a world premiere of Andre and George Previn’s most expensive demo ever made.
“The opening concert of the summer is my way of introducing the audience into my musical world with a grab bag of more than a few of my favorite things,” explained Feinstein. Broadway sensations Laura Osnes and Richard White will join in the fun with original charts from the Peggy Lee and Judy Garland archives that can’t be heard anywhere else.
Grounds will open for picnicking and dining at 5:30 p.m. and performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. Guests are welcome to bring their own food and drink or visit one of the many onsite gourmet food vendors. Audiences will get the ultimate outdoor concert experience: large LED video screens, superior sound quality and the high-quality production value that is a signature of the Pasadena POPS.
The Arboretum is located at 301 North Baldwin Ave., Arcadia, CA. Single tickets starting at $20 and season subscriptions starting at $100 are now on sale and are available by calling the box office at (626)-793-7172 or at the Arboretum on the day of the concert.
Subscribers have the opportunity to purchase onsite Arboretum parking. Single ticket holders may park for free at the Westfield Santa Anita shopping center with free non-stop shuttles to the main gate.
