The next event on Pacific Symphony's calendar is the "Tchaikovsky Spectacular - Music for the Cure" at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine on September 12. Following that is three nights of "Midori Plays Tchaikovsky" from September 24-26 at Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. This season's pops series kicks off with Patty LuPone at Segerstrom Concert Hall, October 8-10.
The upcoming 2009-2010 season of the Pacific Symphony, as could be expected, is very personal for St.Clair.
"For this season of the Hal and Jeanette Segerstrom Family Classics Series, I have dug deep into the past 20 years to pick the orchestral works that have moved me and I believe have moved our audiences--pieces like Berlioz' 'Symphony fantastique,' Strauss' An Alpine Symphony and Gershwin's Concerto in F, this time with some surprising 21st-century enhancements," he said via press release.
The pieces for the season highlights the melding of modernity and classics with a new series of multi-media concerts called "Music Unwound." These concerts will incorporate visual elements to highlight music such as Richard Strauss' Alpine Symphony and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, "Pathetique."
