Anyone who enjoys classical music and attending concerts, recitals, and salons. Feel free to suggest a meetup, as long as it is something classical music lovers would enjoy. My personal emphasis will be small home salon type venues, which is something that I love a great deal, but we definitely should meet up at concerts in OC and LA. I would also like to invite members to be assistant organizers. Send me a message if you would be interested in that!
Friends, this concert will be a special treat you will not want to miss!
Every year the SCP holds a competition for young musicians ages 5-17, the winners of which will perform solo with the orchestra and receive scholarships toward their musical studies. This time there were 40 competitors, and the talent was astonishing! The winner of the competition was a 10 year old cellist from Irvine named Eiline Tai. I saw her perform the last movement of Elgar's Cello Concerto at a home concert last December. I could not believe what I was seeing and hearing: a note perfect and passionate performance which would do honor to a musician of any age. She will be performing the same work at this concert.
Here is a video of Eiline Tai at the performance I mentioned above. Just watch the first two minutes and get ready to have your mind blown! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFzZlk3w_bc
More information about the program to come soon.
Tickets are $15 per person, or $30 for groups of three or more, and are available at the orchestra's website here: http://socalphil.org/Tickets/ or you may pay at the door.
