Join fellow Columbia alumni for a fun, intimate evening of al fresco dinning at our private table of ten at this EXCLUSIVE event. This event sells out immediately each year, but we scored a table through one of our board members! Enjoy dinner & concert with Columbia friends on the stunningly beautiful grounds of the Mission. Learn the story of the miracle of the Swallows Returning to Capistrano each year. Have a glass of wine or three*. Laugh. Then listen to the two world-class tribute bands play the Eagles & Fleetwood Mac favorites.
“Music Under the Stars” is a fundraising concert series in support of preservation & sustainability of the Mission San Juan Capistrano, the aptly-named “Jewel of the Missions.” It’s located in the oldest continuously-occupied neighborhood in California, dating from the 1770s, in the heart of downtown San Juan Capistrano.

The gates open at 5:30 p.m. You will see long lines of General Admission ticket holders, but you don’t have to stress like them because we have our own private, reserved table. Look for the “Columbia” colored centerpiece! Wear your Columbia colors and insignia as we will likely be informally competing with the “USC” and “UCI” tables.
5:30 p.m. Enter at one of the three gates, and find your way to our table.
5:45 p.m. Dinner & beverages at our table
6:30 p.m. Music starts (opening act “Fleetwood Mac” – also excellent!)
7:30 p.m. Headline band (“The Eagles”)
9:30 p.m. Event concludes. Some of us may wander over to the Swallows Inn for an afterparty.
Ticket includes admission, seat at the table, dinner provided by Columbia SoCal (think upscale boxed dinners and appetizers), table setting, and water. BYOB – bring your favorite wine & soft drinks for yourself and perhaps to share. Coffee & fine desserts are available from the Mission vendor.
Note: This event is a bargain because it is subsidized by Columbia SoCal and the CAA. General admission alone, way in the back with no seat or table, cost $34 alone for this event.
* Please drink responsibly and plan your ride home accordingly.
