Description: California's oldest symphony orchestra, currently in its 102nd season, makes its Carnegie Hall debut just prior to an extensive tour of China. Maestro Jahja Ling bears the distinction of being the only conductor of Chinese descent of a major American orchestra. Following the symphony's storied "comeback" both artistically and financially in 2002 after receiving a $120 million dollar gift from Mr. and Mrs. Irwin Jacobs, this world-class orchestra presents a program featuring a commission by David Bruce, a gifted composer who enjoys a close relationship with the symphony.
Venue Description: One of the most famous performance spaces in the world, and where the biggest orchestras in the world play when they come to New York City. They also offer neighborhood concerts throughout the year, tours of the historic halls, music programming, festivals, and more.
