Long Beach Symphony Classical Concert

February 8, 2020 @ 8:00 pm

The Long Beach Symphony playing Barber and Mahler will host guest soprano Elissa Johnston.

On Saturday, February 8 at 8:00 PM, in the Terrace Theater of the Long Beach Performing Arts Center (300 E. Ocean Blvd), the Long Beach Symphony will celebrate the rich heritage of folk melodies from the United States and Mexico relived by 20th Century composers. 

The program opens and closes with works by American Aaron Copland. The first, El Salón México, is named after a dance hall said to have played three kinds of music: one for the upper-class, a more vigorous working-class music and a foot-stomping music of the peasantry. As the music segues from one class to the other, audiences will hear drunkenness, twirling dancers, lots of brass and some memorable clarinet solos.

For more information, or to purchase tickets and subscriptions, please visit or call (562) 436-3203.
