Holiday Look In home tour
This 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 are used to support the Pasadena Symphony’s annual concert series as well as many educational outreach and community engagement programs like the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra. PYSO has been training tomorrow’s classical musicians since 1972. Under the direction of Music Director, Jack Taylor, this exceptional ensemble is comprised of talented middle school students from grades six through nine. These committed young people receive advanced instruction and challenging music opportunities through a rigorous program that emphasizes ensemble playing and includes a minimum of three concerts a year.
