This season, the iconic Gamble House in Pasadena will collaborate with USC Thornton to present a four-part music series entitled “House Music.” The 1908 showpiece of American Arts and Crafts architecture, a National Historic Landmark, is currently deeded to the city of Pasadena and managed by the USC School of Architecture. The first of four performances will begin with a classical theme, followed by programs in jazz, early 20th Century music, and vocal performance, continuing through the spring.
The inaugural “House Music” concert will take place on November 15th, featuring the Trio Brillante, which includes student pianist Vijay Venkatesh, cellist Annie Jacobs-Perkins (’18), and clarinetist and alumnus Micah Wright (DMA ’15), performing works by Beethoven, Muczynski, and Brahms. Tickets for each of the intimate concerts start at $100 for non-members and include a reception on the Gamble House terrace. Proceeds from the concert series will go toward the restoration and maintenance of the Gamble House Baldwin Piano.
