What a wonderful event! Beautiful setting, wonderful music and perfect weather made this evening truly enchanted. The peacocks roaming the grounds didn't hurt either, although they were comically loud during some of the show. I will definitely...continued

Pasadena POPS at the Arboretum is always a nice night out. Michael Feinstein did a wonderful job for his first night as the conductor!

Music was great. Good choice of musical pieces and performed well. Venue is good except for the loud peacocks. Their calls were very annoying. Even the conductor commented on their calls.
