The Pasadena Symphony’s 2018-19 season will get off to a grand start on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018 at Ambassador Auditorium with both matinee and evening performances (at 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm) of Mozart’s beautiful Requiem. Mendelssohn’s String Symphony No. 3 and Elgar’s Introduction & Allegro will round out the emotive program, culminating in Robert Levin’s 20th century completion of Mozart’s final masterpiece. Audiences will be blown away by the power of this beautiful and dramatic program that Music Director David Lockington and the Pasadena Symphony have planned to open its 91st season.
Pasadena’s most-anticipated opening night of the concert season will envelop audiences with voices from the Donald Brinegar Singers and the JPL Chorus, conducted by Donald Brinegar, alongside four stellar vocalists: soprano Amanda Keenan, mezzo-soprano Tracy Van Fleet, tenor James Onstad and baritone Lee Poulis, twice named Best Young Singer by Die Welt. To learn more about the music and the soloists, you can join Insights – a free pre-concert dialogue with David Lockington, which begins one hour prior to each concert.
The Pasadena Symphony provides a socially vibrant experience specially designed for the music lover. The luxurious Symphony Lounge provides yet another addition to the delightful and elegant concert experience the Pasadena Symphony offers. At the posh setting of the Ambassador Auditorium’s beautiful outdoor plaza, audiences enjoy uniquely prepared menus for both lunch and dinner at each concert from Claud &Co, fine wines by Michero Family Wines, plus music before the concert and during intermission.
