Read for Important Information about Music Under the Stars 2021
Dear Mission Friend,

Many people have been asking about the concert series status for this summer so that they can make plans. Please read below for an important announcement regarding Music Under the Stars 2021.

Due to the significant and stringent capacity limits, the 2021 concert series will need to be mostly canceled. We will be rolling over the 2021 band lineup for next summer 2022 and we will share those concert dates in the next few days.
Each of our concerts have 1,500 attendees which under state guidelines would need to be reduced to 25% or 375 people attending. We considered many options including reducing the concert size. It became a difficult decision to decide who could or could not come. Deciding on only having a few people to attend was certain to cause hurt feelings.
However, we hold out hope that capacity limits for events will be increased by the summer’s end and are keeping the Fab Four series finale concert for Saturday, August 21, 2021, on the calendar. We will not be issuing refunds for that concert unless it is cancelled; for now, assume it is on!
With regard to the administrative details related to your purchase:

1) If you want us to “rollover” your purchase to reserve your same table/tickets, we will gladly do that. You will not be obligated to purchase a membership next year as you will already have your table/tickets. However, we really appreciate your support and thank you for being a member. You must let us know by April 30th of your decision to roll over by emailing:

2) If you want a refund, we will still hold your table for you. However, as part of the sales effort, you will be invited to buy a membership. We want to let you know how much we appreciate your patience and want to give you a chance to participate. We understand that this is a significant financial decision that involves many people. So please let us know in writing by April 30th if you want a refund by emailing us at:
3) If you want a refund and would like to relinquish your table, you must do so in writing by April 30th by emailing:

NOTE: Refunds will be processed as a check as we do not keep credit card information. We will mail refunds to the billing address on your order.
4) If you want to donate your table or ticket value back to Mission San Juan Capistrano to help us in this difficult year, please let us know by emailing: We will gladly hold your table and location for you for the 2022 season. Thank you to those that have already donated their table or ticket value.

This was a very difficult decision and we look forward to giving you an update on the concert series in the coming months ahead. For questions or concerns, please contact Stephanie Montes de Oca at (949) 234-1316 or
Thank you all for your support.
