Welcome to our 2021 / 2022 Masterpiece Series:

New West Symphony Live!

Nurture your love of great symphonic music and new traditions that bring special meaning to our lives! We are thrilled to offer you our 2021/2022 New West Symphony in-person season.

Talented New West Symphony musicians take our stages to present pinnacles of the symphonic canon such as Beethoven’s mighty Ninth Symphony, Rachmaninoff’s enthralling Third Piano Concerto, Mozart’s radiant “Jupiter” Symphony, and Vaughan Williams’ pensive Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis with a slate of guest artists who add their unique musical voices to an array of featured soloist works.

Marvel at the talent and ambition of Double Bass virtuoso and composer Xavier Foley, guitarist Jiji Kim, Malibu-based superstar pianist Andrew von Oeyen, Hermanos Herrera, violin dynamo Elena Urioste, resplendent vocal talent and special appearances by the Los Robles Children’s Choir and California Contemporary Ballet.

New this season for families and holiday revelers is a December performance of wintertime and holiday masterworks, Tales of Winter! that will have you ice skating in the aisles with host Jim Meskimen, Hermanos Herrera, Los Robles Children’s Chorale and California Contemporary Ballet.

“My New West Symphony colleagues and I are eager to welcome you back to our performing venues. I have selected orchestral masterworks to warm the hearts of symphony lovers and made a special emphasis on building audiences for the coming five to fifteen years. Welcome back and enjoy! – Michael Christie, Artistic and Music Director

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.

Michael Christie, Artistic and Music Director
