Long Beach Symphony Presents: “A Classic Pops Hit Parade”
The Long Beach Symphony Orchestra caps off another resplendent season of POPS! by celebrating the lighter side of classical music. It’s a two-part program packed with familiar selections from the 19th and 20th centuries. The first half serenades picnicking audiences with selections from Dvořák (known for his medium romantic style and the “New World” symphony), Respighi (known for his trilogy of Roman tone poems), and Bizet (known for Carmen and his turnaround jump shots), plus a performance of Ravel’s prancing classic Boléro. The second half escorts audiences into the next hundred years with a trio of compositions from American masters, including Gershwin’s An American in Paris, Leonard Bernstein’s Times Square 1944, and populist selections from Aaron Copland. And since this is the final POPS! of the season, the LBSO has brought in a ringer with guest conductor Steven Reineke, who also serves as Music Director of the New York City Pops.
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.
