The San Diego Symphony Orchestra and KPBS present the "1812 Tchaikovsky Spectacular" performed by the San Diego Symphony Orchestra and recorded live at the San Diego Embarcadero during the Bayside Summer Nights Concert Series on Aug. 30, 2019.

As always, Bayside Summer Nights comes to a “Spectacular” end with the music of Tchaikovsky, the booming cannon, the blazing brass and a fireworks display for the whole family to remember!
