Young Artists and American Music- June 12

The Culver City Symphony will offer their last concert for the year  at Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium, 4117 Overland Avenue at Culver Boulevard at 7:30 p.m. on June 12.The final concert of the season offers a different program than our typical season finale. While the June 12, concert is a benefit for the orchestra, which is traditional, what is unusual is that we will be presenting the winners from the orchestra sponsored Parness Young Artists Concerto Competition, which is always an exciting evening. We think you will enjoy hearing these winners, supported by the Culver City Symphony Orchestra, and hearing the orchestra by itself.

This season we have offered a wide range of musical styles, and different sizes of the orchestra. For this concert we will be presenting our largest orchestra of the season, with large wind and brass sections. Those who heard our strings-only concert earlier this year know that with this combined, large force, the orchestra for this concert will present a full- bodied sound enhanced by the warm acoustics of Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium.

Ticket holders are invited to a post-concert reception to meet orchestra members, socialize, and experience the excitement of our raffle as the winning tickets are pulled.

This concert benefits the orchestra. For the only time this season, there is an admission charge. Your attendance will help the orchestra finish this season with an exciting concert; and your financial support will help with funding our next season.
