CONCERT LISTINGS BY DATE - OCTOBER 2021


      The listings on the site are for free concerts and music-related events in Orange County, parts of Los Angeles County, and parts of the Inland Empire. Most of the events listed are offered to the general public free of charge. Events in clubs, bookstores, cafes and other similar venues covered elsewhere generally are not included. Please remember that although every attempt is made to bring you the most current concert information, all schedules are subject to change, particularly if there are any cancellations or special policies due to Covid-19. It is recommended that you confirm any performance you wish to attend.

     What's coming in October? Though not entirely back to a usual schedule, many of the Fall events which were cancelled last year have returned for Fall 2021. This is particularly true for outdoor events like parades and some October festivals. Symphonies and some indoor performances may still be limited or require advanced reservations. Be sure to check venue policies regarding masks and/or vaccinations for events you wish to attend. In the Fall/Winter/Spring, the site usually is updated on the first and third Thursdays of the month. This month's updates will be on October 7 and 21, and due to frequently-changing conditions, there may be extra updates as well. New information will be posted as it is found or announced. Don't forget to check the site's Facebook and Twitter pages for the most recent updates, the latest news and additional information too! If you would still like to view any or all previous themed Summer editions of the site, they can be reached via links on the Site Book page.

ONE FINAL THOUGHT ON THE CONCERTS: All of the concerts in the listings are free to the general public, and there are some truly outstanding programs. However, many of the groups and organizations sponsoring these concerts incur substantial costs in bringing them to you year after year. Donations which allow them to continue their tradition of bringing quality music to the general public at no charge are appreciated.


. . . AND ONE REQUEST FOR VISITORS: Survey forms are sometimes passed out at concerts/event venues, and the question "How did you hear about this event?" is often asked. If you are attending an event you found on this site and receive such a form, it would be much appreciated if you let them know that you found the information on www.dorothyswebsite.org. Thank you!
