Levitt on the Lawn

Levitt on the Lawn at Scripps College is an outdoor concert series presented in conjunction with Pasadena’s Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts and sponsored by Scripps alumna Elizabeth Levitt Hirsch ’74. Like all Levitt concert events, the series seeks to build community through music; however, the Scripps College series is unique among the other Levitt venues in that it primarily features female artists and women-led musical groups.

There are currently no upcoming events in this category. Please visit our Events home page for a complete listing of what's coming up at Scripps College!

Celtic Spring · September 14, 2012

Celtic Spring's music hails from Ireland, Scotland, and Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. While immersed in traditional music, the band has developed a unique style and a repertoire that includes numerous original compositions. A depth of expression is evident in their stunning arrangements — from haunting airs to hard-driving dance tunes.

Quetzal · April 20, 2012

From the ashes of Los Angeles' 1992 rebellion/riots arose a collective of East Side musicians committed to respectfully continuing the legacy of over 70 years of Chicano Rock. Standing on the shoulders of giants like Lalo Guerrero, Ritchie Valens, Cannibal and The Headhunters, The Brat, Los Lobos, and many others, Quetzal has created a path that has earned them the title of "one of Los Angeles' most important bands" (LA Times).
