Holiday Look In home tour

Pasadena Youth Symphony OrchestraThis 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. This year’s designers include Jacob Maarse. 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.
