Los Angeles Bach Festival - Choral and Orchestral Finale

All Saints Church

132 N. Euclid Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101

4:00pm to 6:00pm

Suite for Orchestra No. 3 in D Major, BWV 1068
Suite for Orchestra No. 2 in B Minor, BWV 1067
Magnificat in D Major, BWV 243

The festival orchestra will begin the concert with two of Bach’s magnificent orchestral suites.

The majestic D Major suite is scored for strings, trumpets, oboes and timpani. In complete contrast, the B minor suite is very much a “concerto” for solo flute and strings, comprised of several delightful and virtuosic dance movements.

The festival chorus and soloists join the orchestra for the second half of the program. One of Bach’s most beloved and grand compositions for chorus, soloists and orchestra, the Magnificat remains one of the great monuments in all choral/orchestral literature.

Breeder’s Cup at Santa Anita Park

Santa Anita Park

285 West Huntington Drive, Arcadia, CA 91007

10:00am to 5:00pm

(OCT. 31-NOV. 1) The world’s greatest have to start somewhere. And for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, that somewhere was Hollywood Park, 30 years ago. What began as a one day, 7-race event has grown into a two-day, $26 million extravaganza attracting the best horses, trainers, and owners from across the globe. It has also become the unofficial end and culmination of the thoroughbred-racing season, often with the Breeders’ Cup Classic being the deciding factor in Horse of the Year. And while these two days have seen legends born, history made, and fortunes won, the greatest part is that the best is still yet to come.

 The gates are open and the race is on for the best seats! And as a friend of the Breeders’ Cup, you get a head start on purchasing tickets to 2014 Breeders' Cup World Championships before they go on sale to the general public. Don't miss your opportunity to witness the best of the best compete at beautiful Santa Anita Park on October 31 and November 1.
