Beyond Land and Ocean



What is Orange County

The highly anticipated world premiere of “Beyond Land and Ocean,” a brand new piece of music inspired by and written for Orange County, was performed by Pacific Symphony during the opening weekend of the 2015-16 Classical Season. After touring the county and receiving more than 300 artistic submissions about what makes Orange County home and what unites its people, Pacific Symphony’s Composer-in-Residence Narong Prangcharoen wrote an anthem for the community! The World Premiere Event was held on Sunday, Oct. 4, 2015, when prior to the concert, the community was invited to grab lunch from food trucks while enjoying music, art, dance and other community presentations that helped to inspire Prangcharoen’s composition!


"I wanted to have a piece that would paint a mural of what Orange County is," said Prangcharoen.
