La Jolla Music Society presents New York Philharmonic

La Jolla Music Society concludes this season’s Celebrity American Orchestra Series with the New York Philharmonic on Tuesday, May 15, at 8 p.m. at Copley Symphony Hall. Since its first concert in 1842, the New York Philharmonic has played a leading role in American musical life. Founded by a group of local musicians led by American-born Ureli Corelli Hill, the New York Philharmonic is by far the oldest symphony orchestra in the United States, and one of the oldest in the world. Led by Music Director Alan Gilbert, the Philharmonic’s San Diego program will include Dvořák’s Carnival Overture, Opus 92, Debussy’s La Mer and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 in F Minor, Opus 36.

La Jolla Music Society enhances the concert-going experience by presenting “Preludes” – pre-concert chats and performances – prior to each performance and free to ticket-holders. Nuvi Mehta, artistic director of the Ventura Music Festival, delivers a lecture, “About Life,” a discussion on late romanticism and the dawn of the 20th century in three great works, at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $27-$97 and are available through the La Jolla Music Society box office, (858) 459-3728 or online at www.LJMS.org.
