With patrons' safety in mind, the programs will be presented without intermission, and proof of vaccination and masks will be required."The musicians of the New West Symphony are eager to take the stage and do what they do best - passionately perform great music in beautiful harmony," says music director Christie. "This program, which includes the music of Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Copland and more, is a mix of pieces from several eras and genres that we know will delight you and get your toes tapping. Patrons have been asking when we will return to the concert platform and these performances are an opportunity for us all to gather and revel in the live concert experiences we've been yearning for."
The concert in Malibu will feature the first ever side-by-side collaboration of New West Symphony and students from Pepperdine University's Seaver College under the direction of Director of Instrumental Ensembles, Dr. Pierre Tang. The students will join the professional musicians on stage to perform Edvard Grieg's Holberg Suite and Aaron Copland's famous "Hoe-down" from Rodeo.
Maestro Christie focuses on making the audience experience entertaining, enlightening, and enriching at each concert he conducts. The Symphony has selected these four concert venues in order to bring this exciting musical experience to the broadest audience possible, in convenient locations close to home."We are preparing a full season of programs beginning in December 2021. Our October concerts are an opportunity to whet the appetite of music lovers for the return of live, in-person performances, said New West Symphony CEO Natalia Staneva. "We want to re-ignite the passion for live classical music that we know people have missed. Our concerts will be produced with the strictest Covid 19 protocols in place, giving concert-goers that they can come together safely to enjoy live music again."
