LA JOLLA — Start the fall season with classical music at the season-opening concert by the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus at 8 p.m. Oct. 31 and a 3 p.m. matinee Nov. 1 at the Mandeville Auditorium, UCSD, 9500 Gilman Drive. As an added bonus, a free pre-concert lecture is offered one hour prior to curtain.
The 55th season of La Jolla Symphony & Chorus opens with music from the extremes of Bartok — his “Romanian Folk Dances” and the “Miraculous Mandarin Suite.” The two pieces frame Osvaldo Golijov’s “Three Songs for Soprano” performed by Susan Narucki in her debut with the orchestra. The program concludes with Beethoven’s “Seventh Symphony.” Steven Schick conducts.
Parking is free and ticket costs run from $15 to $29. Call (858) 534-4637 or visit www.lajollasymphony.com.
