Pasadena Pops Closes Season With Ode to Movie Music

Principal Pops conductor Michael Feinstein and the Pasadena Pops close the summer season with Hollywood Blockbusters on Saturday, Sept. 9, at the Los Angeles County Arboretum.
Feinstein has curated a celebration of songs that made Hollywood a hit parade with music by beloved film composers from Henry Mancini to John Williams. Highlights include music from “42nd Street,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “Pink Panther,” “E.T.” and more.
Feinstein will welcome a star-studded lineup to sing the hits of Hollywood, with two-time Tony Award winner, Broadway and TV legend Christine Ebersole returning to the Pops stage. Best known for her acclaimed roles in “Grey Gardens” and “42nd Street,” Ebersole brings her formidable talent to sing Hollywood’s biggest hits. The multi-talented, Grammy-nominated Cheyenne Jackson also returns to the Pops to show off his vocal range. Most recently seen on “The Masked Singer,” Fox’s “Call Me Kat,” and as Hades in Disney’s “Descendants 3,” Jackson has also starred in the critically acclaimed HBO biopic of Liberace, “Behind the Candelabra,” and appeared in “Glee” and “30 Rock,” among others.
All concerts are held at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Gardens. The grounds open for picnicking and dining at 5:30 p.m. and performances begin at 7:30 p.m. With spacious, circular table seating with fine linens, or lawn seating for those who want to bring a blanket – each option carries on the tradition of picnic-dining with your family and friends listening to Feinstein and the San Gabriel Valley’s premier orchestra. Among many venue amenities, concertgoers can enjoy preordered gourmet box dinners for on-site pickup just steps from their table or take advantage of a variety of food truck options.
The Arboretum is located at 301 N. Baldwin Ave. in Arcadia. Subscribers may purchase prepaid, onsite parking at the Arboretum, and all concertgoers can purchase guaranteed and convenient parking at Santa Anita Park, with nonstop shuttle service to the Arboretum’s main entrance.
Single tickets start at $30. Single tickets are available by calling the box office at (626) 793-7172, online at PasadenaSymphony-Pops.org or at the Arboretum on concert days.
