The Old Mill Foundation is pleased to announce that Magical Music at the Mill, a new summer concert series, will debut this summer at the Old Mill in San Marino.
Each evening will feature a different chamber music ensemble performing on the historic Pomegranate Patio surrounded by the Mill’s beautiful pomegranate trees and lush gardens. In addition to enjoying the fine music, concertgoers are invited to view the original adobe building, learn about its history, and view the latest California Art Club exhibition, On The Water in the Mill’s gallery. Summer concerts at the Old Mill are intimate evenings of chamber music surrounded by the history of early California. Fiato Quartet will open the concert series on Saturday, July 20.
Concert goers are urged to have dinner before they arrive and enjoy a beverage at the no-host refreshment bar before the concert or during intermission. Chairs are provided and the musicians are only steps from the audience. The gates open at 7:00 p.m. and the music begins at 8:00 p.m.
Tickets are $15 a seat with advance reservations, $20 at the door. To make reservations, please contact The Old Mill at (626) 449-5458.
