Event Details

Nestled into Santa Monica Canyon is an historic hacienda built in the 1920s by Mexican opera star Jose Mojica. The acoustically perfect music salon showcased Mojica's talent and left a legacy used today by this historic institute as a venue for summer concerts with limited seating.

As we pay tribute to Mojica,  the highly acclaimed piano trio "Trio Celeste" will perform a transcription of the Debussy opera that was Mojica's first starring role.  A special treat -- the Trio's award winning violinist will be performing on a 1689 Baumgartner STRADIVARI (Antonio Stradivari) on loan!!  This venue is intimate allowing you to  get a close look at this rare and extraordinarily valuable instrument and hearing it under these acoustic conditions is a remarkable opportunity.

7:00 p.m.    Come early to tour the botanical gardens and see the Rancho chapel and 1930s classic screening room.  Tickets include A pre-concert talk,  concert, refreshments and admission to the beautiful hacienda's  botanical gardens and chapel.

7:30 p.m.     The  pre-concert talk will explore the 'behind-the-scenes tribulations' surrounding the works being performed and will discuss the age of Impressionist Music in which Debussy composed for Maeterlinck's Symbolist play Pélleas y Mélisande. 

8:00 p.m. -9:30 p.m.     The performance will juxtapose Gabriel Fauré's music on the sameMaeterlinck theme with that of Debussy while we note the contrasts between the works of these two famous Parisien composers writing their scores at virtually the same time.

Refreshments, wine, desserts, coffee will be served during intermission allowing the audience to mingle with the musicians and look with awe on the Strad violin!!!!

No program exploring the cusp from Romantic to Modernity would be complete withou the other 'father of Impressionist Music";  Ravel; we conclude with Ravel's  Piano Concerto in A Minor.

This is an intimate, historic venue with very limited seating. Early reservations are required  Please note that this is an opportunity to dress up a bit for an elegant Friday night!  No admissions at door without prior reservations.

La Señora Research Institute

La Señora reconnects our community to its history via interactive, historically accurate and intriguing educational programs.   Our programs are designed to encompass all age and demographic groups, including significant outreach to low income and minority communities.  La Senora also opens its doors and resources, enticing the diverse elements of the historical community into collaborative endeavors.

Our anthropological layers allow us to unearth the changes each Era has brought to one small Mexican Rancho. In the early 19th Century our focus narrows to an artistic and social mecca--a single Hacienda built on what was once Rancho land. Our Institute is housed in a 1920's era Hacienda that was the residence of a series of "Old Hollywood" Legends; built by one of Edison’s Three Tenors, Jose Mojica’s Music Salon is the site of our chamber music; the 1930-40's  brought the Hacienda Anita Loos' Santa Monica Canyon Salon; Lyle Wheeler (David Selznick's Art Director) made the hacienda his home. The over 600 films produced by these three former residents are screened in our 50-seat theater.
