Three generous helpings of spicy, flavorful musical goodness will be served to guests at the South Pasadena Library ‘Carnegie Stage’ Concert for the 11th Annual Eclectic Music Festival on Saturday, April 27. The highly regarded Carnegie Stage in the Library Community Room, located at 1115 El Centro St., has presented more than 40 dynamic performances over the past decade, including a bevy of GRAMMY winners. The 2019 Carnegie Stage concert will again utilize the popular recipe.
Doors will open at 3 p.m. No tickets or reservations are necessary, but seating is limited and “festival style” (first come, first seated). Refreshments will be provided by the South Pasadena Woman’s Club and CDs by the musical artists will be available for purchase. For more information, please call the Library at (626) 403-7350.
The Library Carnegie Stage’ concert is able to be presented because of the partnership between the City of South Pasadena, the South Pasadena Public Library, the Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library, the Lucille and Edward R. Roybal Foundation, South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, The Bissell House Bed & Breakfast, The Eclectic Friends of the Arts of South Pasadena, The Rotary Club of South Pasadena, and the Woman’s Club of South Pasadena. Special thanks to Brad Colerick & Ximena Dussan/DeepMix Entertainment, Jeff Burke, 210eastsound, Kurtis Nakagawa, Tim Carruth, and Jimmy O’Balles.
