Some of the best music in town takes place in and around UCSD with the La Jolla Symphony and Chorus (full disclosure, I’ve been a citizen member of the chorus since I was a student at UCSD a long time ago)…It provides professional performance opportunities to people who love to sing and play, because, as well all know, it’s tough for a region to support multiple paid classical performing groups. So this is a way to keep more brilliant classical music alive for both performers and audiences.
I checked the website and there some really interesting, great performances coming up:
La Jolla Symphony and Chorus, lead by David Handel, will present Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 9 in D Minor” on Saturday, Feb. 10 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 11 at 3 p.m. Tickets are a (relatively) affordable $26.
I’m pretty excited about the presentations of Mahler’s “Symphony No. 4” and Sibelius’ “Luonnotar” on May 5 and 6.
