Season Opening, To Honor Veterans
Around Veterans Day, The CULVER CITY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA honors through music the Men and Women who honor this nation through their military service. The season opening concert pays tribute to the 200th Anniversary of the births of Verdi and Wagner. We offer a unique concert aria by Beethoven, and a dynamic and brilliant Mozart symphony closes the program.
CCSO returns to Veterans Auditorium after our successful summer festival as the Marina del Rey Summer Symphony (same usual suspects in both orchestras). From The Argonaut we received 1st Place as Best Concert Series and Best Cultural Event. We bring the Best Of Marina experiences to Culver City, along with Soprano Erin Wood.
Free parking is available. This concert is under the direction Conductor/Music Director-Frank Fetta.
