La Jolla CA— With the COVID-19 pandemic impacting everyday life, the La Jolla Symphony and Chorus has once again re-imagined our 2020-2021 season. As we adapt to these unprecedented circumstances, we’ll continue to serve our communities as best we can. In order to ensure the safety of our community and ourselves, we’ve made some important modifications to our programming that will allow us to continue to share the joy of live performance with you, virtually.
Our 2020-2021 season—STAY HOME WITH US— will combine some of our favorite things: lively conversation, fascinating ideas and extraordinary music. In this six-part monthly series, we’ll prepare a lively menu of musical encounters featuring interviews, solo performances and selected pre-recorded works from the La Jolla Symphony and Chorus archives. Join us from your living room, or maybe from the kitchen as you prepare a meal and enjoy a glass of wine or listen as you walk on the beach or on the trails. We will meet you where you are with our signature mixture of adventurous and classic music-making along with warm conversations. We will be airing selected archived LJS&C performances, preceded by a series of newly produced and recorded pre-concert lectures, interviews, and readings, hosted and curated by Steven Schick, Music Director. We are calling these “LJS&C: Stay Home with Us.”
We’ll begin on January 15 with a program entitled “Music in Nature”, We’ll look lovingly at the planet as we listen to music that reflects the earth. We’ll feature selected movements from Beethoven’s picturesque Symphony No. 8 a solo performance of John Cage’s Child of Tree by percussionist Matt LeVeque and an archived performance of L.J. White’s Community Acoustics.
As we eagerly anticipate our return to the concert stage when it is safe to do so, we are excited to be in production of this bold new monthly digital program, featuring Steven Schick, LJS&C Music Director, Ruben Valenzuela, LJS&C Chorus Director and musicians from both ensembles. All of these programs will feature solos and small ensembles performed by musicians from the La Jolla Symphony and Chorus and gives us the perfect opportunity to introduce you to our LJS&C family on a more intimate basis.
Productions will be aired on January 15, February 19, March 19, April 16, May14 and June 18. Series subscriptions or individual event tickets can be purchased by visiting our website at www.lajollasymphony.com, by phoning the Box Office at 858-534-4637 or by writing us at email@example.com.
