California Philharmonic officially announced its 2018 summer season at the Music Center’s Walt Disney Concert Hall, and, appropriately chose May, which is National Re-commitment Month, to share the news…and there is lots of it.
Recommitted to delivering fresh new programming, a host of first-time and returning spectacular special guests, and to its loyal and growing audience, this season will be one like no other.
Maestro Victor Vener and his world-class orchestra are revamped, re-energized, and ready to make history again during this year’s summer series of five concerts at the iconic music destination that they have called home for 15 seasons.
“We have made a lot of positive changes since the last few seasons. From management, to extraordinary debuting and returning talent, to new programs taking place in front of and behind the scenes,” said Maestro Vener. “We are stronger than ever and recommitted to present the type of dynamic singular programming that has become synonymous with California Philharmonic to our loyal and growing audience. Every season is an experience and this one will be the best by far.”
