Great Orchestra Great People
From the Music Director
Welcome to calphil.org!
We are excited to celebrate the 13th season of the California Philharmonic, having grown from a summer festival to two full orchestra and a chamber music concert series, making us one of the most successful orchestras in California.
For summer 2009 we will perform five subscription concerts at the beautiful Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden and Walt Disney Concert Hall. I’d like to thank all of the Los Angeles County officials whose efforts have been instrumental in helping us provide such magnificent venues for our music.
Additionally, we’ve been hard at work making lots of improvements behind the scenes to enhance your concert-going experience. Of course, all of these efforts are in support of what our concerts are really about—the music. As always, we are devoting our time, effort and love to bring you the finest concerts and the best artists possible.
None of this would be possible without exceptional devotion and commitment from Cal Phil’s dedicated music lovers. Strong fundraising—including our annual campaigns and our Wine and Strings Fundraiser—volunteer work and ticket sales all contribute to this orchestra’s continued health and longevity. So to our board, our staff, our musicians, our volunteers and you, our audience, thank you for all your support. I hope you continue to be part of our Cal Phil family.
