Mainly Mozart All-Star Orchestra Festival: October 2022
Wednesday: 7 PM
Friday: 7 PM
Saturday: 7 PM
From the KPBS weekend arts preview:
Two concerts remain of this season's Mainly Mozart All-Star Orchestra Festival, which mark a return to indoor concerts for the organization. Mainly Mozart innovated outdoor classical music performances with drive-in and pod-style picnic concerts early in the pandemic, but now they turn to a new home: a new theater at the Del Mar Fairground that will ultimately be operated by the Belly Up.
Friday's performance, "Pure Soul," features piano concertos from Mozart and Ravel, plus 20th century French composer Jacques Ibert's playful "Divertissement." Also in the lineup is Ralph Vaughan Williams' contemplative and poetic single-movement piece, "The Lark Ascending."
Saturday is subtitled "Mozart & Folk," and features Mozart's "Violin Concerto No. 5," another by Vaughan Williams — his "Fantasia on Greensleeves," and Dvorák's "Slavonic Dances Op. 72."
