Pack up the picnic basket, shades and flip-flops, and head out to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater for the start of Pacific Symphony’s Summer Festival 2007—the 20th season of symphonic music in the great outdoors!
The “Good Vibrations” concert is all about music that captures the essence of summer—sea, sun, sand and surf. Conducted by the always charismatic Richard Kaufman, the Symphony’s principal pops conductor, the concert features the Grammy-nominated surf band Papa Doo Run Run as they rock the amphitheater with Beach Boys hits such as “California Girls” and “Surfin’ U.S.A.” The program also includes selections from the movies “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “The Little Mermaid” and “Jaws.” Plus, there will be a few favorite patriotic tunes, a tribute to the Armed Forces—and a brilliant fireworks finale!
“This year’s July 4th concert will be an exciting trip back to the very cool music of the ’60s,” says Maestro Kaufman. “The orchestra will also thrill the audience with music from films whose stories take place on the ‘high seas,’ including music from ‘Mutiny on the Bounty,’ Richard Rodger’s ‘Victory at Sea,’ ‘Splash’ and ‘The Caine Mutiny.’ It will be a night of great music and a chance for the audience to go ‘surfin’ with the Symphony.”
