Pasadena’s AxS Festival 2011 starts this weekend, and it looks awesome. It just came to my attention because my friend David Sprio, a tenor with Pasadena Pro Musica and Southwest Chamber Music, sent me an invitation to Pasadena Pro Musica’s show on Sunday, featuring choral music by Lauridsen, Holst, and neurobiologist-cum-composer Elaine Bearer. Details on the concert are available here and here.
Being a big fan of science in general, I think this is worth checking out, and events go for a full two weeks.
The festival website has a ton of information, over at axsfestival.org.
