New West Symphony returns to the stage to present our dynamic 28th season of masterpieces and entertaining newer works, alongside GRAMMY Award-winning Artistic and Music Director Michael Christie and internationally-renowned guest artists. Revel in the talents of up-and-coming conductor Enluis Montes Olivar, cellist Ifetayo Ali-Landing, charming pianist Sean Chen, and other special guest artists.

Returning this season for families and holiday celebrants is our annual December performance of wintertime and holiday masterworks. Winter Spectacular features recording phenomenon and star of stage and screen, Sam Harris. From the music of Debussy to Tchaikovsky, you won’t want to miss this budding holiday tradition.

Season highlights include:

A live performance of Philharmonia Fantastique: The Making of the Orchestra, a new fantastical combination of the orchestral music composed by GRAMMY® Award-winning composer Mason Bates and animated/live action film. 

Binging on Mozart is a delightful selection of chamber, orchestral, operatic, and solo works curated from over 600 of Mozart’s compositions. Our season finale is Beethoven to Brubeck, featuring the photography of Ansel Adams set to the music of late jazz great Dave Brubeck and his son Chris Brubeck. Beethoven’s immortal Symphony No. 5, the work that forever changed music, closes out this incredible season.
