CC Symphony Shifts – Marina Symphony Offers Summer @ Burton Chase Park

As they do every year, the wonderful Culver City Orchestra shifts identity to become the Marina del Rey Symphony, presenting a full schedule of concerts, opera, dance and musical theater at Burton Chase Park in the Marina. Bring a picnic, a jacket, a blanket to sit on and one to wrap yourself in.
