Golden Dreams - Interplay 2017

Chapman University and Pacific Symphony join forces again to present the annual INTERPLAY festival of music, culture and ideas. With many events free and open to the public, this boundary-breaking partnership engages the Chapman community and Symphony musicians and staff in a wide array of collaborative events, including performances, lectures, art exhibitions, and student projects.

This year we celebrate California's rich, diverse human landscape and its role as a unique cultural crossroads, a meeting point for our state's indigenous people and immigrants from across the nation and around the world.  "Golden Dreams" will honor and explore the history, heritage, and ideas of those who were here, those who came here — and how their interactions changed the world.
