Pre-Sale Tickets Now Available for Music Under the Stars at the Mission

Members of the Mission’s Preservation Society have an opportunity to pre-purchase tickets to this summer’s premier concert series: Music under the Stars in the courtyard of the beautiful Mission San Juan Capistrano.  If this year is like past years, the event will sell out quickly!  According to the Mission’s event web site:

Music Under the Stars Summer Concert Series is a fundraising concert series in support of preservation and sustainability of Mission San Juan Capistrano, historic California landmark #200 and museum.    Music Under the Stars features a primarily tribute band lineup, celebrating a variety of timeless and nostalgic classics in popular music at the beautiful and historic setting of the Mission.   Concerts are held on Saturday evenings throughout the summer. Mission entrance gates open at 5:30 p.m.; Music begins at 6:30 p.m. and ends at 9:30 p.m.

You can join the Preservation Society to take advantage of the pre-sale, or wait until tickets are released to the public on March 5, 2014.  Want to know more?  Watch the two videos after the jump:
