Due to the guidelines issued by government authorities during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Pasadena POPS has regrettably made the difficult decision to reschedule the 2020 Summer POPS Series at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in its entirety to Summer 2021.
“We are deeply saddened that we are unable to perform at a time when the inspiration that comes from experiencing live music is needed most,” says CEO Lora Unger. “As we work in phases to reopen our community, we accept that large scale events like ours are not yet ready to resume. Our orchestra is resilient, and we are deeply grateful for the support and trust of our patrons who are standing with us. We look forward to coming together with our audience to share in the joy of our live performances in the near future.”
The Pasadena POPS has informed its patrons that all subscriptions and single tickets have been automatically transferred to the rescheduled 2021 dates below. In the meantime, the Pasadena POPS is staying connected with online initiatives including the Play at Home with the POPS archival series and In Conversation, a weekly video podcast with conductors, musicians, guest artists and all who make the music happen. Resident Pops Conductor Larry Blank will also host a new POPScast, launching in June.

June 19, 2021 – Sway With Me: Latin Rhythm and Swing
