Music over matter = personal climate control
For those staying in SoCal for at least part of the summer months, you will not be without concertgoing options: We’ve already covered some of the festivals currently underway, and there are certainly others that are more instrument-oriented, but we thought a quick run-down of local sources of vocal splendor might be useful. Please do let us know if we’ve missed something, as we’ll include this list of links in Next 7 throughout the summer. Stay cool!
Baroque Music Festival — Corona del Mar — June 22-29
Hollywood Bowl — All summer long
Music Academy of the West — Santa Barbara, June 16 to Aug 9
Ojai Music Festival — Ojai, June 12-15
Redlands Bowl — Redlands, Eight Fridays, starting June 27
SongFest: 19th Annual Song Festival — Downtown LA, June 5-27
unSUNg: Songs Uncommon and New — Glendale, June 29 * July 20 * Aug 17
One major gap this year: Due to major construction currently underway, Southwest Chamber Music’s annual series of concerts at The Huntington is on hiatus this year. We look forward to seeing what they have in store for 2015!
