SummerFest Opening Night: 'Expect the Unexpected'

Alan Gilbert conducting the NDR-Elbphilharmonieorchester @ Elbph
Friday, July 28, 2023 at 7:30 PM
The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center
$53 to $115

From the La Jolla Music Society:
This festival we delight in the unknown, the surprising and the unexpected. In that spirit, music director Inon Barnatan has created a concert program for opening night that will not be disclosed in advance and which, like an Omakase meal at a sushi restaurant, invites you to trust the chef to create an unforgettable experience. Superstar conductor Alan Gilbert, principal conductor of Hamburg’s Elbephilharmonie and former music director of the New York Philharmonic, leads an all-star cast of musicians in an unmissable program of chamber and orchestral works, including a virtuosic showstopper, a lush symphony, and an iconic piano concerto.
