The California Philharmonic and Maestro Victor Vener return this Sunday with the popular Music, Martinis and the Maestro chamber music series at the Sofia ballroom at Noor.
Music, Martinis and the Maestro offers music lovers an exclusive opportunity to join Vener, on a Sunday afternoon, to experience intimate chamber music performances by members of the orchestra.
The ballroom allows for 240 guests only, so you are encouraged to purchase tickets soon. Doors will open at 1:30 p.m. with the concert beginning at 2:00 p.m.
The afternoon will start with an in-depth discussion with Vener. The interactive experience will offer audience members the chance to participate in an up-close-and-personal conversation with the Maestro as he shares fascinating facts and stories about the music and instruments and their history.
“We are thrilled to announce the return of Music, Martinis and the Maestro. One of California Philharmonic’s most popular events, our uniquely entertaining and enlightening chamber music series is another fantastic way to experience captivating music that is performed by world-class musicians, in a more intimate setting than our larger concerts allow,” said Vener whose singular style and deep knowledge is a much-appreciated staple in all of California Philharmonic concerts. “Since this series is designed for small groups of people, we encourage attendees to participate in a collective dialogue, with the musicians and myself, about the music featured in the program of the day.”
This is a first of four like concerts. The repertoire for this Sunday includes: Mozart Oboe Quartet, Mozart Divertimento K.251 for Oboe, two horns and strings, Schubert Quartettsatz, and Dvorak American Quartet.
Three other concerts will follow, scheduled on March 26 (VIRTUOSO STRINGS), April 9 (BRILLIANT BRASS: 500 YEARS OF BRASS MUSIC), and May 14 (PEZZONE AND FRIENDS).
Seats are available at tables, with prices ranging from $25 to $90.00. Noor has a full bar and offers concert-goers the opportunity to pre-order food from the Noor menu.
The Sofia Ballroom in Noor is located at Paseo Colorado, 260 East Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91101.
