The LA Philharmonic comes to Santa Barbara this Saturday, January 27.
Led by world renowned conductor Gustavo Dudamel, the program consists of Igor Stravinsky’s “Fireworks,” Joseph Pereira’s “Concerto for timpani and two percussion,” and Johannes Brahms’ “Symphony No. 1 in C minor.” You won’t want to miss what the New York Times calls “America’s most important orchestra”.
Dudamel is on his ninth season as the Music and Artistic Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and has had enormous success in expanding the Philharmonic’s audience as well as creating new community outreach programs. Dudamel has received great amounts of praise in the music community. Not only has the conductor been granted the Americas Society Cultural Achievement Award, but he was also awarded the honor of Musical America’s 2013 Musician of the Year, featured on 60-Minutes on three separate occasions, and voted into the Gramophone Hall of Fame.
The performance starts at 8 p.m. at the Granada Theatre (1214 State St.) in downtown Santa Barbara. Tickets can be purchased on the Granada Theatre website.
