- Saturday, February 6: In addition to Massenet’s Orchestral Suite No. 5, Scènes Napolitaines, and Saint-Saëns’ Cello Concerto No. 1, this program includes two works by Ravel—the four-part Rapsodie Espagnole, which was inspired by the composer’s Basque mother, and Boléro, famous for its staggeringly sustained crescendo.

- Saturday, June 4: The season draws to a close with an orchestral flourish thanks to a trio of masterpieces. Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No. 5, his most famous of the 21 dances he composed, is simultaneously upbeat and dramatic, while Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 is interspersed with uneasy silences and bold instrumentation. Finally, Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 has, in the composer’s own words, “a romantic, calm, and rather melancholy character…a kind of moonlight reverie on a beautiful spring night.”
Long Beach Symphony
A community institution for over 80 years, the Long Beach Symphony has entertained generations of audiences. The Symphony produces six full symphonic classical concerts throughout the year at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center Terrace Theater and five more eclectic POPS! concert events in the Long Beach Arena, entertaining more than 32,000 residents throughout the season. Outside of their concert events, the Symphony also provides over 24,000 local school children with access to music at their schools, libraries, and community centers, as well as ensembles and concert field trips for every LBUSD 2nd-5th grader in the public school system. Because music should be above all things accessible, Long Beach Symphony also offers free concerts at smaller venues and fun instrument petting zoos in spaces all over the City of Long Beach, like Cesar Chavez Park, Rainbow Harbor Lagoon, City Parking Garage, and Homeland Cultural Center.
