Lantern Festival 2020
Free Family event! Bring the entire family and join us for Pacific Symphony’s annual Lantern Festival, celebrating the Year of the Rat! The Lantern Festival, which can be traced back 2,000 years, takes place 15 days after the Lunar New Year—on the first full moon night in the lunar calendar—and marks the return of spring, representing the reunion of family. The act of lighting and appreciating lanterns is a way for people to let go of the burdens of their old selves and express their best wishes for themselves and their families for the future.
The Art of Orchestration
Composers paint with the colors of the orchestra. Alan Chapman shows you how it’s done, with special attention to an elite group of masters of orchestral color. The presentation is illustrated with many vibrant visuals and musical examples.
This is the second part of the series Orchestra 101 with Alan Chapman.
Nowruz - Iranian New Year
Pacific Symphony welcomes legendary singer Shahram Nazeri and his son, composer Hafez Nazeri, for a celebration of Nowruz, the Iranian New Year. A traditional festival that marks the beginning of spring, Nowruz is a time to experience the “rebirth of nature” and wash away the past. Join us for a concert that unites cultures through the power of music.
