Tickets on sale for Sunday musicales in La Jolla

A unique group of chamber music ensembles will perform at the historic Darlington House in La Jolla as part of its three-concert Winter Classical Musicales program.

Once the La Jolla retreat of Mrs. Sybil Darlington, the architecturally eclectic home echoes a lifestyle of gracious living and delightful musical soirees of years past. Continuing the tradition, the Sunday concerts will be held in the living room with a reception in the Egyptian Garden. Proceeds benefit the Social Service League’s affordable housing program for seniors.

Darlington House, at 7441 Olivetas Ave. in La Jolla, is home to the musicales.

Guests will meet in the garden at 2 p.m. for a Champagne/wine reception and then enjoy an hour of uninterrupted classical music. Afterward, there will be an opportunity to meet with the artists for more refreshments and conversation.

■ Jan. 26: Pianist Mary Barranger and violinist Eddie Stein, both members of the San Diego Symphony.
■ Feb. 16: Pianist/composer Leo Marcus, former member of the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, and soprano Renee Burkett with excerpts from operas and Broadway shows.
