LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Summertime at Descanso Gardens will be a little less melodic after the Pasadena Symphony Assn. and Pasadena Pops announced earlier this month that, after 15 years, the summer concert series would be leaving the lush grounds for cheaper pastures. The Concerts Under the Stars series will instead be staged at the Rose Bowl next season, according to the association. The decision is part of a recovery plan to help end the symphony’s next season with a balanced $3.2-million budget as it gradually pays off $800,000 in debt, said Paul Jan Zdunek, chief executive for the Pasadena Symphony Assn.
