Rosalie Sorrels Memorial
Sunday, August 20, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The Pasadena Folk Music Society is co-sponsoring a memorial for Rosalie Sorrels with some of her friends and family on Sunday, August 20 at 7:00 PM in our familiar Beckman Institute Auditorium (Little Beckman.) Rosalie, a terrific singer, songwriter, musician and storyteller passed away on June 11 and this will be a chance for friends, a few family members, and the many who knew her from her songs and performances to remember how special she was. We are very proud that we featured her three times at Caltech. The event will be free, and though it will feature some music, it will, in the tradition of Rosalie, feature many stories and memories as well. Mark the calendar!
For those unfamiliar with Caltech, Beckman Institute is actually located at 400 South Wilson Avenue in Pasadena. While there may be limited street parking, there are parking lots located at the southern stub of Michigan Avenue (one block east of Wilson), below Del Mar Boulevard. Beckman Institute is located west of the distinctive large white wedding cake Beckman Auditorium (NOT part of Beckman Institute), easily seen from Michigan Avenue. A series of pools (fountains at times) points toward Beckman Institute, and the auditorium is located on the first floor. The auditorium holds just under 200 people, and we don’t know how many folks to expect for the memorial, so we recommend arriving a bit early.
We will provide further information in the coming days. If you have questions, send a message to
