Jacaranda 10th Anniversary Season Premiere

-- Saturday, Oct. 19 at 8 pm

--First Presbyterian Church of Santa Monica

Jacaranda, the classical music series known for rarely heard, new and modern music, will celebrate its first 10 years on Saturday night with a program of American music entitled “Grit and Glory” at First Presbyterian Church of Santa Monica.

The concert’s title refers to Jacaranda’s quintessential mix of electrifying challenges with the sublime. The music will journey to a factory in South Carolina, a country fair in Mexico and three California locales.

Ritual percussion from Hawaii and Haiti will add tropical reaches to the musical itinerary. “Grit and Glory” conveys the American experience in all its boldness, courage and euphoria.

Concert tickets, $45 general; $20 students are available at jacarandamusic.org.
