2022-23 Masterpiece Series

Symphonie Fantastique

Sat, March 4, 2023 – Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza
Sun, March 5, 2023 – Rancho Campana Performing Arts Center in Camarillo

Berlioz’s passionate and dramatic Symphony Fantastique is said to represent his love and obsession for his later-to-be wife. We also feature a new fantastical collaboration of an orchestra concerto and animated/live action film which illuminates how instruments are played, performed live and composed by GRAMMY® Award-winning Mason Bates and animated by Academy Award® nominated Jim Capobianco. We honor the passion for innovation and commitment to education of our beloved Founding Music Director Boris Brott with the performance of “Nimrod.”
