Spring Fling 2019 , Cinco de Mayo!
Sunday, May 05, 2019, 01:00pm - 03:00pm

Spring Fling is our festive springtime afternoon party / harp concert / fundraiser to support the Valeria Finzi Scholarship fund!

We will gather again in the gardens of Duquessa McGuffin's elegant residence, Chateau Les Fleurs, in La Cañada Flintridge.  This year, we are celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a Mexican theme!

18 05 20 tables

We will enjoy performances by the talented young harp students who are this year's Finzi Scholarship recipients (Colin Hong, Grace Hong, Joshua Ho and Chloe Bang); as well as guest artist Jessica Brizuela with Mexican-American vocalists Melinda Garcia and Bella Macias, who will give an entertaining performance highlighting some of the classics and greats of Mexico including bolero, mariachi rancheros, cumbia of Selena, music of Disney/Pixar's Coco, original music and more!

Plus there will be a raffle, and a self-serve taco bar!


Jessica Brizuela is a harpist, Board Certified Music Therapist, and Certified Neurologic Music Therapist from Southern California, currently residing in Pasadena, CA. Jessica enjoys writing and singing with her harp. In 2017, she had the honor of being featured performer at the NALIP Latino Media Awards where she got to showcase her original music. Her music draws from her gentle nature along with subtle rhythmic grooves on the harp influenced by her Latin American roots.  She studied harp with Felice Pomeranz at Berklee. 


Melinda Garcia is a vocalist based in Pasadena. She is a graduate of Berklee College of Music, where she studied voice as her principle instrument, and received a degree in Music Production & Engineering. Melinda has mixed audio and music for various short films and projects, and has engineered scores for feature length film.
