Sunday November 19, 7:30pm
Robert Frost Auditorium
in Culver City
In 2022-23 the Orchestra presented its first full season for several years, with four outstanding concerts led by four guest conductors.
Thank you to everyone who helped make our 2022-23 season a success!
Our 2023-24 season opens with a very special concert on Sunday, November 19 at 7:30pm in the Robert Frost Auditorium.
The concert marks the last day of the California Festival, a statewide music initiative showcasing the most compelling and forward-looking voices in performances of works written in the past five years. During the two-week Festival, more than 100 musical groups will have performed over 180 compelling new works.
Our concert features three new works, including the world premiere of Circle Overture by renowned film composer and long-time friend of the Orchestra Craig Safan, along with familiar works that were new and innovative in their time.
This concert will also introduce our new Music Director-Conductor, Clyde Mitchell, to our audience. Maestro Mitchell is only the third Music Director in the six decades since the Orchestra was founded by George Berres in 1963.
