San Diego Symphony presents its January festival, Hearing the Future.

The world is changing at an unprecedented rate. We live in an age of dizzying possibility, of constant transformation and reinvention. The old rules don't seem to apply anymore, but is anyone sure what the new rules are?

Musicians, and other artists, can have an uncanny ability to sense what's just around the corner, or to make sense of a transformation that's underway in our world.

Hearing the Future, curated by composer-conductor (and 2018 MacArthur Fellow and Genius Award recipient) Matthew Aucoin, explores and celebrates the power of music and art to give voice to the evolution and revolutions in the world at large.

The festival will shine a spotlight on the music being made today - from composers and performers who are still in high school, to a 90-year-old jazz master. The festival will also explore the way music from the past, from Haydn, Beethoven and Berlioz to the creators of African-American spirituals, engaged with the most urgent issues of their time.

Events will happen at various venues throughout San Diego. Find the complete schedule of events here or call (619) 235-0804 for additional details.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
