Celebrating its 80th birthday in 2014, the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra has entertained generations of audiences with seasons that thrive on contrast. Each year includes six classical concerts and five Pops! musical dinner picnic events in the newly-renovated Long Beach Arena. The Symphony also serves the community with free music education that has reached over 24,000 youth at schools, libraries, hospitals, and community centers. In addition, the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra was the first major regional orchestra to appoint a woman as its Music Director, in 1989, and further gained international stature with its most recent Maestro who brought original compositions, world premieres, and celebrated international soloists to the Symphony?s repertoire.
The Long Beach Playhouse is an upbeat and cheerful community theater in the city that is its namesake. Some of their more recent theatrical renditions include Alfred Hitchcock’s 39 Steps, Fiddler on the Roof, and a Midsummer Night’s Dream. The atmosphere of the Long Beach Playhouse is rather laid-back when compared to a conventional theater, with patrons being allowed to snack and drink both during the intermissions, and while the shows are on. The Saturday night performances here are often the most attended and acclaimed, with the theater being packed to full on these days. A fun, comfortable venue with decent quality food and drink at accommodating prices is what the Long Beach Playhouse has to offer visitors.
Largely known for their frequent live music, Harvelle's low-lit interior is an intimate setting for enjoying drinks, gourmet food, and live entertainment, six days a week. Huddled over candle-lit tables, couples can enjoy craft cocktails from the bar or edibles from the kitchen such as the brandy pulled-pork and brie sandwich with caramelized onions or the roasted tomato and garlic flatbread.
