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.
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.
