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

Next up this season “Four Seasons” concert engaging violin superstar Elena Urioste with Michael Christie and the New West Symphony in a program featuring Vivaldi’s famous Four Seasons. Urioste has performed with the Los Angeles, New York, and London Philharmonics as well as the San Francisco, Detroit, and Chicago Symphony Orchestras and is renowned for her sensitive and expressive playing. This concert includes old and new masterpieces highlighting Ralph Vaughan Williams’s beautiful Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis and Jessie Montgomery’s Strum. This program was originally planned as part of “Music to My Ears: Science of Sound” program in February 2022.
