Classical Crossroads Concerts

Dear Friends,
This is Classical Crossroads’ third season at First Lutheran Church & School, Torrance, where we’ve been warmly welcomed with gracious hospitality. First Lutheran’s beautiful sanctuary and superb acoustics combine with the artists’ exceptional musicianship to make the concerts truly life-affirming experiences. The first two seasons have been musically, and with your presence, very, very STRONG, or in musical notation, fortissimo fff. So, we have changed the name of our noon time series to
“First Fridays at First ~ fff.” Keep inviting people to our concerts, and we may need to change it to ffff!
Classical Crossroads comprises two series. “The Interludes” presents winners of the prestigious Beverly Hills National Auditions on Saturdays at 3:00 p.m., September through June (except December). These concerts are presented the previous evenings by the City of Encinitas in its splendid library, and after the first of the year, on the following Sundays in the City of Beverly Hills’ historic Greystone Mansion.

The second series is the “First Fridays at First ~ fff ” series. The finest Southland professional artists perform half-hour recitals followed by light refreshments on first Fridays from September through June at 12:15 p.m. Please note that if the first Friday in September falls on Labor Day weekend, the concert date may vary.
