Project Description

Pacific Symphony was founded in 1978 to inspire, engage and serve Orange County through exceptional music performances and education and community programming. It leads a renaissance in the appreciation, accessibility and impact of classical music in Orange County and the region, through creativity, responsiveness and innovation. Music Director Carl St.Clair celebrates his 30th anniversary this season, alongside 24 of the total 88 orchestra musicians who have also served for 30 years or more. In 2019, Pacific Symphony was invited by the League of American Orchestras to join Group One of the leading symphonies in the nation, alongside the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony and Los Angeles Philharmonic. This places the orchestra in the top tier of American music ensembles and reflects its growing national impact and increasing stature in the music field. The institution has a 28-year history of balanced budgets demonstrating exemplary fiscal oversight.
