The Deal

Les Miz & Bernstein

The California Philharmonic doesn't limit itself to the works of long-gone composers. In its Festival on the Green, the musicians fill the open air of the Santa Anita Racetrack with the heart-wrenching and upbeat tunes of Broadway and even classic rock. During Les Miz & Bernstein, the orchestra and chorale gain help from Randal Keith and Melissa Lyons's golden vocal chords for an evening that delves into musical classics. Cast members of the Broadway and national-touring iterations of Les Miserables, the duo sings such tunes as Bring Him Home while Maestra Marya Basaraba helms the chorus. Then the performers switch into favorites written by Leonard Bernstein, including songs from Candide and On the Town, as well as symphonic dances and vitriolic finger snapping from West Side Story.

California Philharmonic

The mission of the California Philharmonic and its founder, renowned conductor Victor Vener, is simple: to increase awareness and appreciation of classical music. Their method, however, is anything but traditional—instead of staging events in formal halls or black-tie stairwells, the ensemble presents their crowd-pleasing concerts at the Santa Anita Race Track and the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Combining pop music, Broadway standards, and legendary symphonies, Vener creates dynamic programs that aim to catch the imagination. Along with engaging performances and tuneful collaborations, the Cal Phil also hosts family nights to encourage children’s symphonic education.
