Here are some more summer music notes for you to consider. Descanso Gardens is presenting its summer music series on Thursday evenings at 6 p.m. called “Music on the Main.” The series features some of the Southland's best jazz artists. The Thursday night concerts continue through Aug. 23.
Muse/Ique will have its first of two summer concerts at Caltech's Beckman Mall, affectionately called “The Olive Grove,” on July 14. “Come groove in the grove” with Rachael Worby and jazz ranging from be-bop to soul to swing. Featured in July is Arturo Sandoval, who is known for his amazing trumpet runs. Their next summer concert is Aug. 18 with Rickie Lee Jones, a vocalist, musician and songwriter.
Speaking of music and the arts, Pasadena Arts Council, with Terry LeMoncheck as its executive director, held its annual Gold Crown Award and inaugural AxS Award ceremony at Descanso Gardens last Monday night.
More than 300 supporters of the council gathered at the new Sturt Haaga Gallery of Art patio and the historic Boddy House for a wine reception. Patina Restaurant and Catering provided a steady stream of tantalizing hors d'oeuvres to taste.
