We’re proud to soon enter our 23rd season in the Pasadena community! Our Pasadena Distinguished Speaker Series evenings are held at the Ambassador Auditorium, located on the historic Ambassador College campus. Did you know? The Ambassador was notably referred to as “The Carnegie Hall of the West” during the period between 1974-1995 as it hosted some of the most internationally renowned singers and performers. With its stunning architectural design and accompanying reflection pool, you’ll feel as if you’re entering a modern Greek temple! Before attending a #SpeakersLA night, we recommend dining at a local favorite like Cameron’s Seafood, Malbec Argentinean cuisine, The Parkway Grill, Cameron’s Seafood Restaurant, Arroyo Chop House or True Food Kitchen!
