Experience the life of a Hollywood icon as the historic Alex Theatre hosts Loretta Young's 100th birthday gala. A paragon of grace and beauty, the Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress stole Clark Gable's heart and advanced women's status in entertainment by becoming the longest-running female host of a prime-time television show with The Loretta Young Show. Leading lady of such films as The Farmer's Daughter, The Bishop's Wife and The Stranger, Young shared the screen with such greats as Cary Grant, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. Young's son and daughter will be on hand, along with celebrity friends, to take the audience on a journey through the star's life. Movie clips, conversations, testimonies, dramatizations and an exclusive exhibit of Young's famous dresses and cherished possessions will bring this Hollywood legend to life. Learn More

Alex Theatre is charming, there is ample parking for $1 with validation (thanks to City of Glendale), many great restaurants and stores nearby, so I recommend this venue. The symphony itself is very good with a new young Asian woman leading, so I will plan on attending another of their concerts in December.

<p>Southern California does have seasons, contrary to what folks in other sections of the country may think. In fact, this evening's performance will guarantee an experience of all four seasons ...when the Glendale Symphony Orchestra travels back in time 300 years to Italy, to enjoy Antonio Vivaldi's best known and most beloved work, 'The Four Seasons.' </p> <p>From Italy, then travel to Argentina to experience the four seasons yet again - albeit with a distinctly South American flavor - when the orchestra presents 'Cuatro Estaciones en Buenos Aires,' a seething, seductive masterpiece by renowned 20th century tango composer, Astor Piazzola. </p> <p>And, because it's impossible to stop dancing once you start to tango, the night will conclude with 'Three Tangos for Flute and String Orchestra,' composed by the Glendale Symphony Orchestra's very own former Music Director, Lalo Schifrin. </p>
