Violins of Hope & Jerusalem Quartet

Symphony Concert and Cultural Festival

Presented online.

January 31, 2021 | 7:00pm (Pacific Time)*

Southern California has long been home to musicians, innovators, and educators sharing the storied traditions of Indian culture and Indian Classical Music. European and American composers we hear often have been drawing on India’s vibrant musical language and engrossing formal structures for well over a century.

In collaboration with LA based composer Reena Esmail, UCLA’s Rahul Neuman, Hindustani Soprano Saili Oak and Internationally renowned tenor Sean Panikkar, New West Symphony explores the influences of these musical traditions upon the other. Works of Reena Esmail, Debussy, Elgar, Turina, Cooke and Philip Glass share the spotlight with performances of Hindustani and Carnatic music.


A Festival Passport, including the concert plus complementary content to enrich your experience, is $25 per household.

An All Access Season Passport to our season of 8 cultural festivals is $160 (a 20% savings).

Along with the symphony concert,  Season and Festival Passport holders enjoy access to companion cultural festival programs for further immersion into the music, the artistry, and the culture that inspired our concert.
