Cal Phil’s 17th season of Festival on the Green at Santa Anita Race Track, presented by Westfield Santa Anita, continues with the immensely popular themed Andrew Lloyd Webber Meets Puccini on Saturday July 13, 2013.
Noted soprano Lori Stinson, dramatic tenor Christopher Campbell and award-winning bass baritone Cedric Berry join Cal Phil and the Cal Phil Chorale in rousing works from such musical masterpieces as Phantom of the Opera, La Boheme, Sunset Blvd. and Tosca as well as Nessun Dorma and the finale to Turandot.
“Cal Phil’s unique Andrew Llyod Webber Meets Puccini themed concerts are always a favorite among concert-goers,” said Maestro Victor Vener who is also responsible for creating the orchestra’s popular programming. “The impeccable orchestra, the soloists and the Chorale blend into memorable and moving performances from some of the most heralded musicals and operas of all time. It is an experience you will hear – and feel.”
Gates open at 5:30pm for pre-concert dining, plus live jazz, a host of pre-concert family friendly activities including pony rides, face painting by San Gabriel Valley’s own MonArch Face Painting and a Musical Instrument Petting Zoo by Lee’s Music Store in Arcadia. Gourmet dining options include a full bar. Concerts begin at 7:30pm. Table and lawn seating on the plush green grass of Santa Anita Race Track’s infield concert lawn are available, complete with the area’s best unobstructed view of the beautiful San Gabriel Mountains.
For those who prefer an indoor concert experience, Cal Phil performs Sunday matinees of the same concert at the incomparable Walt Disney Concert Hall. Celebrating its 10th anniversary at Los Angeles’ premier music venue, Cal Phil at Walt Disney Concert Hall Sunday performances start at 2:00pm, with the popular pre-concert Talks with the Maestro beginning at 1:00pm.
