Webster defines " treasure" as "something of great worth or value",a "collection of precious things". There could be no better word to describe the San Diego Symphony.
I had the great fortune of attending the Jacobs Materworks series at our own Copley Symphony Hall and it was such a marvelous production. When one thinks of San Diego, I suppose they think about the amount sunshine , the beaches, the raw beauty of nature and these are just a few of the fabulous traits of our great city. But you just haven't lived until you attend a performance of one of the wonderful and magnificent symphony productions at Symphony Hall. Click here is see a virtual tour of Symphony Hall .
San Diego's Symphony Hall opened as the Fox Theater in November 1929, some twenty years after the first concert was given by the San Diego Symphony Orchestra. The luxurious interior of the concert hall is of the ornate French Rococo style. It was built as a lavish movie and vaudeville theater. By the mid-1980's the San Diego Symphony orchestra had its own home there in what was renamed the Copley Symphony Hall.
Nuvi Mehta gave the concert comments prior to and during the various musical piece presentations and he was a real joy to listen to with a powerful and melodic voice with marvelous intonation. Nuvi also gives speeches on the symphony itself as well as the masterpieces , as interpreted by Jahja Ling our masterful and world renowned Conductor. I felt almost exhausted myself watching him perform his magic in the Jacobs Materworks. He puts his heart, soul and whole body into the direction of some of the most magnificent musical talent I have ever heard perform. Jahja Ling ,our very own maestro is achieving international recognition in musical excellence as well as cultural leadership and within minutes of hearing his magical interpretations,you will clearly understand why.
