Bookmark and Share

A who's who of Hollywood's music elite is coming out to play with Michael Feinstein at the Pasadena POPS' August 16th Hooray for Hollywood concert, presented in partnership with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) at the LA Arboretum. Four of ASCAP's top film composers and lyricists will perform their hit music with the POPS: Alan Bergman ("Windmills of Your Mind," with Marilyn Bergman and co-written with Michel Legrand, 1968 Oscar winner from The Thomas Crown Affair), Michael Giacchino (music from Up, winner of the 2010 Oscar for best original score), Bruce Broughton (music from Silverado, 1986 Oscar nominee for best original score) and Paul Williams ("Evergreen," co-written with Barbra Streisand, 1976 Oscar winner from A Star Is Born).

Powerhouse vocalists Maureen McGovern, Debby Boone and Kevin Earley will make special guest star appearances, singing such iconic songs as "The Way You Look Tonight," "The Sound of Music," "The Man That Got Away," "Stormy Weather," "Blues in the Night," "You Light Up My Life" and "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe," plus beloved music from Mary Poppins, The Magnificent Seven, Funny Girl and a symphonic arrangement of Pharrell Williams's 2014 Oscar-nominated song "Happy" from Despicable Me 2,created especially for the Pasadena POPS.

Hooray for Hollywood is part of ASCAP's ongoing, year-long 100th birthday celebration. ASCAP hit its 100-year milestone in February and is celebrating the centennial with a new book, a commissioned short film, and an innovative website featuring a timeline of ASCAP's rich history. In addition, celebratory and educational events spanning the country include a Library of Congress exhibit in Washington DC, reflecting ASCAP's energy and expertise throughout its history advocating for music creators' rights. This exhibit will be on display at Disney Hall in Los Angeles later this year. Find out more at www.ascap100.com.

The family-friendly concert will be held at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden. The grounds are open for picnicking and dining at 5:30 p.m. and performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Among many venue amenities, audiences can enjoy pre-ordered gourmet dining packages for onsite pickup from Julienne, Marston's and Claud & Co. The food court will host mouthwatering food trucks plus specialty ice creams by Choctál. The experience is now even more convenient with two full beverage centers serving fine wines, beer, coffee and soft drinks plus exclusive hotel packages for POPS patrons at Pasadena's landmark Langham Huntington Hotel. Patrons may also visit the Pasadena Humane Society's Mobile Adoption Unit, which will be on-site prior to each concert with animals in need of a forever home as part of the Pups for POPS program.

Audiences get the ultimate outdoor concert experience: large LED video screens, superior sound quality and the high-quality production value that is a signature of the Pasadena POPS. The best outdoor dinner party in town comes with spacious circular table seating with fine linens, or lawn seating for those who want to bring a blanket - each option carries on the tradition of picnic-dining with your family and friends. The Arboretum is located at 301 North Baldwin Ave., Arcadia, CA. Single tickets start at $20 and are available by calling the box office at 626.793.7172, online at PasadenaSymphony-Pops.org or at the Arboretum on the day of the concerts.
