By performing exciting repertoire, both old and new, and creating unique community collaborations, we are going to reach out to a wide-ranging audience and make our concerts the most welcoming and inviting place for classical music in Santa Monica.”

Kalia has planned three orchestra concerts at the Moss Theater, all on Sunday afternoons starting at 2:30 pm. The concert dates, themes, and featured guest artists are:
