Pacific Symphony's critically acclaimed American Composers Festival (ACF), led by Music Director Carl St.Clair, enters its 17th year with“Ellis Island”—a meaningful nod to the past, with lessons for the present, fortified by hope for the future. Each year, ACF uncovers a different facet of American music, and in 2017, the Symphony pays tribute to our nation's historic immigrant experience and the American dream by taking inspiration from the Grammy-nominated work composed by Peter Boyer, “Ellis Island: The Dream of America.” This ambitious blending of narration, projected images and orchestral writing highlighting individual immigrants who came to America's shores between 1910 and 1940 offers a searing, emotionally charged concert experience.  (more...)

THE BEACH BOYS to Perform with the Pacific Symphony, 3/3-4THE BEACH BOYS to Perform with the Pacific Symphony, 3/3-4
by BWW News Desk - Feb 8, 2017

At the forefront of the Golden Age of rock 'n' roll, before The Beatles made their U.S. debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show” in 1964, there was The Beach Boys, scoring hit after hit. And now the quintessential surf band makes its most recent splash by bringing a sure-to-sell-out evening of their best-loved songs to Pacific Symphony Pops! Having made their mark singing about “California Girls,” it seems particularly appropriate that America's most popular group throughout the 1960s is planning a visit to Orange County. While The Beach Boys of today bear little physical resemblance to the five cherubic California kids who first hit it big five decades ago, the music is a dead-ringer and will take the audience back to a time of innocence and fun in the sun with songs such as “God Only Knows,” “Don't Worry Baby” and “You're So Good to Me.” (more...)

Pacific Symphony, led by Music Director Carl St.Clair, has been invited to perform for the very first time at one of the world's most prestigious venues, Carnegie Hall in New York City, in honor of one of today's leading composers, Philip Glass. Joining them will be Pacific Chorale, also appearing at Carnegie Hall for the first time. One of America's most revered composers, Glass is Carnegie Hall's 2017-18 composer-in-residence, where he holds the Richard and Barbara Debs Composer's Chair. With this season-long residency by Glass, Carnegie joined a yearlong celebration of the composer's 80th birthday, presenting performances that feature his classics and premieres. As part of the residency, orchestras from across the United States were invited to submit programs featuring important works by Glass in illuminating contexts. Pacific Symphony and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra were the two orchestras chosen, in part by Glass himself, to perform during Carnegie's upcoming season. Both orchestras emerged among competitors with what Carnegie called “very compelling programs.” (more...)
