It’s time to purchase your tickets to the 48th Annual Pasadena Showcase for the Arts (PSHA) 2012 Showcase House of Design. Tickets will go on sale on February 13th for this annual event. This year’s Showcase House is a 1927 Spanish Revival-style estate conceived by architect John Winford Byers. The House will be open from April 15 to May 13 (Tax Day to Mother’s Day).
For the last 47 years PSHA has raised funds, generated by proceeds from the Pasadena Showcase House of Design, to promote youth music education and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. To date, PSHA has donated over $18 million to these programs. Funds have also provided opportunities for over 350,000 children to discover, enjoy and study classical music. Proceeds from the 2010 Pasadena Showcase House of Design generated $750,000 which was distributed during the Gifts and Grants Reception at the 2011 Pasadena Showcase House of Design last spring.
