Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall

Pacific Symphony
Carl St.Clair, conductor
Dejan Lazic, piano

Though known during his lifetime more as an organist than a composer, Bach became the single greatest influence on every important composer for centuries. Mahler's immersion in Bach's works first displayed itself in his Fifth Symphony. Also on the program: Bach's “Air on a G String” and Piano Concerto No. 3.

Bach: Air on the G string Bach: Piano Concerto No. 3, BWV 1054 Mahler: Symphony No. 5

Pacific Symphony
Alejandro Guiterrez, conductor
Strauss, Jr. - Tritsch-Trasch-Polka
Prokofiev - Selections from Cinderella
The classic children's tale documenting the triumph of spirit over adversity. Your children will love this wacky production, which features life-sized puppets and music from Prokofiev's popular ballet. You've never seen "Cinderella" like this before!
Pacific Symphony's Family Musical Mornings are fun and fascinating 45-minute concerts designed especially for children 5-11. Enjoy family fun time together while enhancing your child’s (or grandchild's) love of music.
