Opening Night is anchored by Strauss’ monumental tone poem, evoking confidence, unrest, life, love, and serenity. Before that, GRAMMY® Award-winning Eighth Blackbird shares a new work by composer-in-residence Viet Cuon which Culture OC calls "a bright and cheerful work, sophisticated but easy to like." The festive evening opens with a brief symphony by Mozart as a delightful amuse-bouche.

With Image Magnification (IMAG) on the big screen for a closer look at the guest artists, conductor and orchestra musicians!
