End the summer with a bang at Pacific Symphony's annual Tchaikovsky Spectacular with fireworks at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. Led by Maestro Carl St. Clair, this year's concert features Tchaikovsky's "Polonaise and Waltz" from Eugene Onegin, followed by guest pianist Jon Nakamatsu, winner of the 10th Annual Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, performing Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. The orchestra will also tackle Modest Mussorgsky's famous Pictures at an Exhibition, inspired by the composer's visit to a retrospective exhibit for a deceased artist friend. During the program's grand finale -- Tchaikovsky's triumphant 1812 Overture -- the sky overhead will explode into a dazzling display of cannons and fireworks. Bring your own picnic, or choose from one of the Bristol Farms gourmet picnic box packages, featuring your choice of sandwiches and salad boxes. Learn More
