Pasadena Symphony Plays the European Masters

Principal guest conductor Nicholas McGegan returns to lead the Pasadena Symphony at Ambassador Auditorium on Saturday, March 18, with a European tour of musical masterpieces, featuring Felix Mendelssohn’s “Scottish Symphony,” inspired by the picturesque and romantic landscapes of the north and Schubert’s “Overture in the Italian Style.” Virtuoso violinist Rachel Barton Pine will transport the audience with Mozart’s Turkish Violin Concerto No. 5 with performances at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.
To learn more about the music, a free pre-concert dialogue with McGegan, which begins one hour before each performance, will be given. Patrons who plan to arrive early can also enjoy a drink or a dinner in the Sierra Auto Symphony Lounge, with menus from Claud & Co. The Lounge serves lunch and dinner, a full bar and fine wines by Michero Family Wines, plus music before the concert and during intermission.
All Symphony Classics concerts take place at Ambassador Auditorium, 131 S. St. John Ave. in Pasadena. Subscription packages start at $99; regular individually priced tickets start at $35 and may be purchased online at pasadenasymphony-pops.org or by calling (626) 793-7172.
