One more performance is scheduled to complete the 2021-22 season. On Jan. 29, 2023, violinist Cindy Wu and pianist Ines Irawati will play to make up for the concert canceled Jan. 16, 2022 due to the surge in the coronavirus pandemic. Subscription tickets from 2022 are valid and additional tickets can be purchased at the door.
The Restoration Concerts Committee, a committee of the non-profit organization, The Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library, has a goal to bring world-class music at an affordable price to the concertgoers in South Pasadena and surrounding communities. As the name suggests, profits from the concerts provide for restorations, enhancements and other benefits to the South Pasadena Library and Community Room.
