Orchestra Santa Monica To Open Second Season On Sunday, Oct. 27:

Save the date – Orchestra Santa Monica will open its second season on Sunday, October 27 presenting Classics & Charisma at 3:30 pm.

The Orchestra, under Music Director Allen Robert Gross, will be performing this concert at its intimate concert venue at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church at 1343 Ocean Park Boulevard in Santa Monica. 

This concert will feature 15-year-old solo violinist Jiye Angela Bae, a winner of this year’s Music Center Spotlight Awards and a student at the Crossroads School in Santa Monica.

Bae was born in Seoul, Korea and began studying music at the age of three.

In addition to winning several awards in both Korea and the United States, Bae’s young talent has brought her to Carnegie Hall, Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Vianden Festival in Luxembourg, and the Summit Music Festival in New York. Miss Bae will be performing Lalo’s popular Symphonie Espagnole in her Santa Monica debut.

Maestro Gross said Bae’s debut was a wonderful opportunity for both the Orchestra and the city of Santa Monica.

“We couldn’t be more excited and honored to feature Angela for our opening concert. She is a tremendous young talent with an incredible future ahead of her,” Gross said.

The Orchestra will also perform Beethoven’s moving 7th Symphony, complemented by Vaughn Williams’ rollicking Wasps Overture.

Executive Director Jennifer Frain said this concert was ideal for the classical music enthusiast and for those newer to an orchestral performance.

“You’ve got both the comfort and richness of Beethoven, and the flashiness of Lalo,” Frain said. “It’ll keep you on your toes!”

Additionally, Orchestra Santa Monica will feature Bae and Maestro Gross at a special intimate event held at Villa Aurora in Pacific Palisades this Sunday, Oct. 20.
