Pasadena Pops Reschedules 2020 Summer Concert Series to 2021

Published on May 11, 2020

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 to Summer 2021.

“As we all work in phases to re-open our community, we accept that large-scale events like ours are just not yet ready to resume,” says CEO Lora Unger. “We live to present these concerts, but the safety and well-being of our patrons, musicians, guest artists, staff and countless volunteers remains our priority.”

All subscriptions and single tickets have been transferred to the rescheduled 2021 dates:

June 19, 2021 – Sway With Me: Latin Rhythm and Swing
July 10, 2021 – Road to Motown
July 24, 2021 – Fleetwood Mac: A Tribute
August 14, 2021 – Michael Feinstein Sings Sinatra’s Songbook
August 28, 2021 – 100 Years of Broadway

The Live at the Arboretum concert with Sara Evans, originally scheduled for June 27, 2020 has been postponed to June 26, 2021.

Rolling over tickets to the 2021 season ensures the Pasadena POPS’ ability to bring back this treasured concert series to the community. Ticketholders also have the option to donate the return of their tickets, the value of which is fully tax deductible. The Pasadena POPS is a non-profit arts organization and this support directly helps them continue to impact lives through the transformative power of music and music education as we all navigate our recovery and relaunch.

Patrons may also contact the box office staff to discuss alternate ticketing options via an online customer service portal

Subscriptions and single tickets to the 2021 POPS season are currently on sale, starting at $25 via or by calling the box office at (626) 793-7172.

The Pasadena Symphony and POPS performs in two of the most extraordinary venues in the United States: Ambassador Auditorium, known as the Carnegie Hall of the West, and the luxuriant Los Angeles Arboretum & Botanic Garden. Internationally recognized, Grammy-nominated conductor, David Lockington, serves as the Pasadena Symphony Association’s Music Director, with performance-practice specialist Nicholas McGegan serving as Principal Guest Conductor.
