Fall Arts 2016: Highlights From Theater, Music And Visual Arts

GUESTS:

James Chute, San Diego arts critic

Autumn is here, which means theaters, art galleries, museums and symphonies are kicking off their new fall seasons.

To help focus our attention on all that's going in San Diego's art scene, KPBS Midday Edition asked three local arts writers to pick out some fall highlights.

Longtime arts critic James Chute discussed the changes happening at the San Diego Symphony now that its conductor and music director Jahja Ling is getting ready to leave.

KPBS/Arts Calendar Editor Nina Garin's theater highlights included the La Jolla Playhouse's upcoming new musical "Miss You Like Hell" and "God of Carnage," a play at Carlsbad's New Village Arts that features husband and wife actors Manny and Melissa Fernandes.

Seth Combs, San Diego CityBeat's Arts and Culture Editor, talked about standout exhibitions happening at the Museum of Contemporary Arts, San Diego and the San Diego Arts Institute.
