Great performance by the Pacific Symphony. Their concerts in Orange County's answer to the Bowl are well worth attending. Too bad it was the last one until next summer. They are an under-appreciated treasure.

Was very happy to wind up in the front row of the terrace section. There was never anybody standing in front of me and we had additional leg room. The venue was very food and drink friendly that night, seeming to allow anything to be brought in...continued

Pacific Symphony Summer Festival Chorus – Robert Istad, director

More than 100 singers from a dozen Orange County choruses unite to give voice to Beethoven’s crowning achievement — Beethoven’s Ninth — for Pacific Symphony’s final concert of Summer Festival 2010, sponsored by Hoag Hospital. Led by guest conductor Robert Moody, this monumental fusion of soloists, chorus and music — all set to Schiller’s Ode to Joy — features four world-class opera singers who take on the florid and challenging solo passages in the fourth movement of Beethoven’s Ninth.

Program:

Gould — American Salute

Barber — Adagio for Strings

Ward — America the Beautiful

Beethoven — Symphony No. 9
