Movie magic has longed been talked about, and these Classical Waterside Concerts at Burton Chace Park have their own magic. Combine the two, and it is a very promising evening. Frank Fetta conducts the Marina del Rey Summer Symphony.
The 2014 Summer Season is an important celebration to us since this is our 15th Year of playing at beautiful Burton Chace Park, and the 50th Year Anniversary of Marina del Rey. Some of us remember the building of the Marina, and to be performing in or listening to an orchestra in a park in the Marina is beyond our dreams.
The connection with film music and films made in Culver City in such illustrious studios as MGM, Sony Pictures, RKO, Thomas Ince Studios, Culver Studios, is very notable for the Marina del Rey Summer Symphony since the parent orchestra is the Culver City Symphony Orchestra. We thank the Department of Beaches and Harbors for their support in the summer. We will pull anchor and sail back to Culver City for our winter season and look forward to the 2014-15 Season, and then set course for a 2015 Summer Season back at Burton Chace Park.
