La Jolla Music Society SummerFest
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS FESTIVAL
Set to San Diego's spectacular ocean backdrop, La Jolla Music Society SummerFest was started by the community 30 years ago. SummerFest annually assembles an outstanding roster of internationally renowned chamber musicians to perform, and carries forward a tradition of commissioning nearly 50 new works by acclaimed composers.
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
La Jolla Music Society SummerFest opens with SummerFest Under the Stars, a free outdoor concert at La Jolla Cove. A mini-festival salute to Shostakovich offers three programs of his chamber music accompanied by lectures by musicologist Dr. Richard Taruskin. Violinist Aislinn Nosky returns with an all-Baroque program. The three-performance series, "An Evening With ... ", will feature San Diego-based percussionist Steve Schick, genre-defying ensemble Time for Three, and Peter Serkin and Julia Hsu in works for piano four-hands. This year's composers-in-residence-Clarice Assad, Derek Bermel, Joel Hoffman, and Peter Schikele-will each present commissioned works. "Strings, Glorious Strings!" features chamber works by Bach, Tchaikovsky, Grieg, and Mozart.
