Holiday Look In Home Tour

2020 LogoThis enormously popular event has become an anticipated community celebration, offering visitors a chance to view four distinctive homes in the Pasadena area, decorated for the holiday season by prominent floral designers. Tantalizing to elegant, inventive to endearing, the annual Holiday Look In home tour delivers visual delights and this year will be no exception.

Proceeds from this event support the Pasadena Symphony and POPS annual concert series, as well as the educational outreach and community engagement programs such as the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra, Pasadena Young Musicians Orchestra, and Pasadena All-City Orchestra. These programs continually offer robust musical training and personal development for young musicians throughout the San Gabriel Valley, fostering music appreciation and aptitude in future generations.

Founded in 1957, the Women’s Committee of the Pasadena Symphony Association is a dedicated group of volunteers who celebrate and support the musicians of the Pasadena Symphony Association through the annual Holiday Look In. During the past 53 years the Women’s Committee has donated over $4 million to the Pasadena Symphony Association. The Women’s Committee was pleased to donate $145,000 in proceeds from its 2019 Holiday Look In Home Tour.

If you enjoy music and the camaraderie of women who are dedicated to supporting the music and culture of Pasadena, you might be interested in becoming a member of the Women’s Committee of the Pasadena Symphony Association. Dues are low. Responsibilities are fun! Meetings are held in beautiful homes six times a year and many include a mini concert provided by talented local musicians. If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact our Membership Chair, Kathryn Gillespie, at kathryng1226@gmail.com.
