Hungarian Rhapsodie, No. 6/Pest(Festival) (1857-60)
Liszt pays homage to his ancestral roots of Hungary with
his festive work. Originally for piano, Liszt and Dopplar
transcribed the rhapsodie which retains its essence in the
Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini (1934)

Rachmaninov’s last work for piano and orchestra is also
a work of homage, this time to the legendary Italian
violinist Nicolai Paganini. This is a multi-faceted work of
deep emotions, with the Dies Irae making an appearance,
and the work presents the pianist with one technical
challenge after another.
Symphony No. 9, From the New World (1893)
Dvořák travelled from his native Czechoslovakia to
New York to establish a music conservatory. During his
stay he travelled to Spillville, Iowa, to meet fellow
Czech’s who had immigrated to the U.S. Dvořák took-in
the songs of the land of Native American and Black
Americans, and from this music composed one of his
most popular, and greatest works. This homage from the
New World and to neglected peoples is consistently rated
as one of music listeners’ favorite symphonies.

COVID-19 Coronavirus update – March 21 Concert Postponed
Thank you for your support of the SoCal Symphony
Society and our orchestras, the Culver City Symphony Orchestra and the Marina del Rey Symphony.
On March 11, the Culver City City Manager directed staff to cancel all nonessential City-sponsored events of over 50 people as a precautionary measure. The Culver City Unified School District is implementing a similar policy.
Our Board of Directors has concluded that, in these difficult circumstances, we should postpone the concert that was planned for March 21, 2020. We plan to reschedule the concert at a later date when appropriate.
Tickets purchased in advance will be honored at the rescheduled concert or, upon request, refunded. Members of SoCal Symphony Society will still receive free tickets for the postponed concert, available at the box office one hour before the time of rescheduled concert.
We greatly appreciate your understanding of the fluidity of the situation and your support.
