Summer Outdoor Music Series

Do you miss live music? Do you miss hanging with friends? Do you wonder when you will be ready to gather with others? Would you like to enjoy beautiful music?

St. James’ Church in South Pasadena is offering a series of informal events in an outdoor setting on Sunday evenings during the summer of 2021 where we can practice being together in a safe setting and musicians can experience an audience once again.

We begin on Sunday, June 13, 5:00 – 6:30 pm with contemplative music.

The Corona Consort

The Corona Consort (Lucy Jones on Treble Viol, Lindsey Strand-Polyak on Tenor Viol and Joan Lounsbery on Bass Viol) came together during the shutdown, outside and 10 feet apart, to play polyphonic music of the Renaissance. Viol Consort Music explores non-hierarchical collaborative musicking with a focus on blend, symmetry and careful cultivation of emotional affect. It has been a balm to our souls during these troubling times, and we look forward to sharing this music with you.

So as the gradual reopening from the pandemic continues, bring the kids, come hang with your friends, experience informal live music, and practice seeing people without a computer screen. Bring a picnic supper if you wish or a beverage for yourself or to share, or enjoy the music and then support a local restaurant.

Join us in a spacious outdoor setting—whether it’s for five minutes or ninety—and experience music live, not live streamed.
