SoCal Symphony Society
Dear Symphony Society Members and
Friends of the Orchestra,
The Directors of the Board and the
musicians of our Orchestra are delighted to
welcome you back to our 2023-24 season.
The Orchestra made musical news last year with a successful first full season since the pandemic and a major talent search for a new conductor as we recovered from the loss of Frank Fetta, our iconic music director and conductor since 1976.
For 2023-24, we are delighted to welcome Clyde Mitchell as the third Music Director-Conductor of the Culver City Symphony Orchestra. Clyde follows in the footsteps of Frank Fetta and our founder, George Berres.
The Orchestra was founded in 1964 and, for the first 45 years, our regular season concerts were free thank to the generous support of our Symphony Society members. The Great Recession of 2008 brought both lower revenue and higher costs. In response, we reduced our season to three concerts and, for the first time, we began charging admission.
We have been very fortunate to enjoy the continued support of our wonderful Symphony Society members, and of Culver City and Los Angeles County. We were delighted that the Board of Directors was able to approve a return to a four-concert season in 2022-23, with free admission to all regular season concerts.
Your support, as Symphony Society members, is a crucial part of our financial resiliency and our ability to continue to provide live symphonic music to Culver City and the surrounding communities.
Please consider renewing your membership or making a donation.
