LJ Symphony sets new season

The La Jolla Symphony & Chorus (LJS&C) has announced its 2009-2010 season.

The 55th season highlights the ensemble’s 120-voice chorus on three of the six concert weekends in major choral works as varied as Leonard Bernstein’s Mass, with its brash mix of classical music and pop culture, and Benjamin Britten’s monumental War Requiem.

The season also brings different “voices” in the musical world to local audiences, including Chinese pipa player Wu Man and Grammy-award winning soprano Susan Narucki in their debut performances with the LJS&C.

Music director Steven Schick shares the podium with choral director David Chase during the new season.

Performances take place in Mandeville Auditorium at UCSD, which is at 9500 Gilman Drive in La Jolla. Concert times are 8 p.m. on Saturdays and 3 p.m. on Sundays.

Free pre-concert lectures are given one hour before each concert. Early bird discount subscriptions are now on sale through June 11. For more information, call (858) 534-4637 or visit www.lajollasymphony.com.
