The Vienna Philharmonic has been a fun project. This is their third visit to Orange County and the first to the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. They will be making debuts in Berkeley, Santa Barbara, Palm Desert and San Diego. We put the tour together so we could have a performance here. When we found out a few years ago that they had a tour cancel during this time period, we jumped on it. We are most appreciative of our marvelous colleagues Matias Tarnopolsky at UC Berkeley “Cal Performances,” Celesta Billeci at UC Santa Barbara “Arts and Lectures,” Sandy Lewis at Palm Springs Friends of Philharmonic, and Christopher Beach at La Jolla Music Society, as well as Dieter Flury and Clemens Hellsberg from the Vienna Philharmonic. Collaboration is a great thing. Semyon Bychkov and the Vienna Philharmonic will perform in Orange County two weeks from today on Thursday, March 3rd.
