Since we can’t be together in the concert hall right now, we’re bringing New West Symphony to you!

From October through June, the New West Symphony will present 8 online cultural festivals that highlight our extraordinary region and communities we serve. Our Ventura County and Conejo Valley neighbors and friends represent traditions with deep roots in family and music.

Join us for a Festival Passport for an in-depth exploration of a variety of cultural traditions represented in our community, or sign up for a full a Full Season Passport, which provides access to all 8 festivals, while saving 20%!

Content will be available to view online at your convenience from their online premiere dates through September 30. 2021. 

Music allows humans to tell stories, share traditions and express our complex emotions. Like a kaleidoscope, as a melody or rhythm is shared, it subtly or dramatically reflects the vibrancy of that time and place. Classical music wouldn’t be the same without the global influences that have left their indelible mark on the art form.

The New West Symphony’s reimagined 2020/2021 season spotlights the vivid cultural influences that have shaped classical music and SoCal itself.
