To accommodate the large audiences that want to attend our performances, many of the choral concerts are held at the First United Methodist Church in Pasadena. Other concerts are typically held in the La Canada High School Auditorium. To learn more about how to attend one of our concerts, such as parking and ticket purchase/pick up, please see the appropriate section below.
Pasadena First United Methodist Church
A detailed printable map of the drop-off traffic flow at the church and nearby parking is available:
Singers entrance is the FUMC side-door off Converse Alley. All singers are expected to arrive in full concert wardrobe, ready to sing. Call time is 90 minutes before the concert, unless otherwise noted. See Latest News.
FUMC parking lots are for special assistance guests only. There are a number of parking lots (some require payment) and street parking within short walking distance of the church. See the map for details.
Two ticket tables are located near the front entrance of the church on Colorado Boulevard. Each table provides the same services:
Pre-order and Sponsor ticket pick-up
Day of concert ticket sales (cash or credit)
Program pickup (one per family)
Only one person from each group needs to approach ticket tables. Other group members can queue in one of the two church entrance lines.
There are two, equal, entrance lines into the church. Each line has access to lower level as well as balcony seating. Doors open approximately 15 minutes prior to concert. Bring an umbrella in case of inclement weather.
Seating is first come, first served. Patrons can save only one seat for a late arriving guest. Materials used to save more than one seat will be removed by ushers and volunteers. All seats at FUMC afford quality viewing and listening. All concerts are expected to sell out, therefore patrons are asked to sit closely, allowing for the maximum number of seats.
During the Concert:
If you must enter or exit the church during the concert, please do so ONLY BETWEEN SONGS, as doors in the church are quite loud.
Special Assistance Guests:
Ticketing and queuing is available for special assistance guests at the side entrance of the church located off Converse Alley. (See map) Bring an umbrella in case of inclement weather. Special Assistance seating is limited, so other members of your group are asked to queue in front of the church for main entrance seating.
La Cañada High School Concerts
All on-campus concerts are held inside the La Canada High School Auditorium.
Parking is available in the two school lots off Oak Grove and Foothill Boulevard.
A ticket booth is available for pre-sale and Sponsor ticket pickup as well as for same day ticket sales.
One line is formed at the main entrance (east auditorium door). Allow the line to form backwards towards the school building to the south, leaving the plaza in front of the auditorium clear for arriving singers and guest.
Seating is first come, first served. Patrons can save only one seat for a late arriving guest. Additional seating is available in the auditorium balcony.
