The Pasadena Community Orchestra (PCO)’s summer Concert in the Park presents a rare opportunity for the whole family to enjoy accessible orchestral music for free in an easygoing environment.
On Saturday, June 10th, at 6:30 pm, Bethany Pfleuger will lead PCO’s accomplished amateur musicians in a program of marches, light classics, film scores, and Americana in the band shell of Sierra Madre Memorial Park. Picnics on the lawn, kids playing and taking a close-up look at the musicians on stage, and even a kid-centric “children’s march” around the park mean that there will be something to please everyone.
New this year is the visual entertainment that will accompany one of the pieces: the Los Angeles Guild of Puppetry’s presentation will go along the classic horseback ride “Light Cavalry Overture,” by Franz Von Suppe. Not your childhood’s puppet show, the Guild’s artistry combines the grace of ribbon dance and flag twirling with the drama of The Lion King-style giant puppets to illustrate the music’s story. (More about the Guild’s shows at http://laguildofpuppetry.org/.) They also promise fun audience participation (for the kids only).
The concert retains everything that has made it a cherished summer tradition: you can picnic and lounge on the grass with family and friends while enjoying live music. Kids can get up and “get the wiggles out” whenever they need to as they get a casual introduction to classical music (they, and you, can talk with the musicians afterwards). The venue is easy to get to, and parking and admission are free.
For 34 years, PCO has been bringing fine classical music to the community free of charge (donations are welcomed). These well-trained musicians provide a high-quality musical experience.
The Sierra Madre Memorial Park is located at 222 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., one block east of Baldwin Ave.
