Symphony Heads West to Burton Chace Park for Summer Series

downloadFor the eighteenth year, the Culver City Symphony will leave the usual venue at the Vets Auditorium and gratefully move west from Culver City to one of the best outdoor venues in SoCal to enjoy concerts;  Burton Chace Park at 13650 Mindanao Way, Marina del Rey, magically transforming into the Marina del Rey Symphony.

Each program through the summer will have a different feel and flavor, and there is something for every music lover to enjoy – opera, film scores, rhythm and blues – it’s all by the water this summer.

A word to the wise. It can get quite chilly along the water. Bring a blanket to sit on, and maybe one to wrap yourself in.

Bring a warm jacket which will shut out the ocean breezes. Wool works. It may be delightfully warm, but it is better to be prepared, and you can always take off a jacket, but if you don’t have one, you cannot put it on.

Only low back chairs to
not block the view of others.
Symphonic Thursdays-Free
All Concerts Start at 7:00PM

All concerts are admission free.
Make it a mini/micro staycation.
