Palm Springs Friends of Philharmonic to Present The San Diego Symphony at the McCallum Theatre

The San Diego Symphony returns to the McCallum Theatre through the efforts of the Palm Springs Friends of Philharmonic as part of their 2022-23 subscription series. Young Venezuelan conductor Domingo Hindoyan (pictured below), who is often compared to the other great Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel, will lead the San Diego Symphony in its performance on Sunday, January 8, 2023 at 5:00 PM. Roberta Holland, Gloria and Michael Scoby and Douglas G. Stewart have generously supported this concert.

“We are thrilled to bring back the San Diego Symphony with its youth and vitality combined with the astonishing talents of American violinist Anne Akiko Meyers who was the top-selling classical instrumentalist of 2014 on Billboard’s traditional classical charts. She will perform a new work by the Mexican composer Arturo Marquez “Fandango for Violin and Orchestra,” commented Marnie Mitze, Executive Director, Palm Springs Friends of Philharmonic.
Through unquestionable commitment to the highest levels of artistic achievement, The San Diego Symphony seeks to elevate human potential by providing a shared sense of pride and belonging to something bigger than any of us can achieve alone. They offer audiences the wonder of live music and transformative learning experiences that develop an understanding and passion for the arts.
The San Diego Symphony Orchestra performed its first concert on December 6, 1910. In the 100-plus years since its inception, SDSO has become one of the leading orchestras in the U.S. and designated a Tier 1 Orchestra by the League of American Orchestras in 2010.

The Symphony makes music an integral part of the cultural and intellectual fabric of Southern California, valued by and relevant to all its residents.

The Palm Springs Friends of Philharmonic is considered one of the premiere presenters of symphony orchestras in the country. Each season the Philharmonic brings a series of world-class symphony concerts to the beautiful 1,127 seat McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert, California.

As the Philharmonic approaches its 50th anniversary, it continues to celebrate a legacy of great performances by national and international orchestras and conductors. The Philharmonic also fosters music appreciation for local youth and encourages promising young musicians through scholarships, education, and instrument donation programs.
