Big finish, new home

LA Bach Fest finale in Pasadena

An annual tradition in Los Angeles for eighty years, the Bach fest isn’t exactly hidden.  But with the appointment of new artistic director James Walker, it has moved to Pasadena, where the festival has found a new home at All Saints Episcopal Church, a major local center of arts and community activity.

This Sunday, the festival wraps up with an extravaganza with the Festival Chorus and Orchestra that includes the 2nd and 3rd suites for orchestra, with flutist Gary Woodward, and the grand Magnificat with soloists Elizabeth Tatum, Desiree La Vertu, Leslie Inman, Ben Cortez, and E. Scott Levin. 

Planning your trip

Tickets are available at the door, but they’re selling very well, so buying online is advisable.

Parking in Pasadena can be tricky, but not impossible:  try parking at Plaza las Fuentes (Westin Hotel), for just $5.

Be sure to get on the festival’s mailing list, so you can get info about next year’s doings, as soon as they’re available: sign up for updates on their website.  (Scroll to the bottom.)
