California Philharmonic: Center Stage

The Music Center

135 North Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012


Whether it’s a Broadway show, an operatic masterpiece or the stage of a grand celebration, music takes pride of place in bringing great stories to life. Whenever there are footlights and actors you can be sure music is also there, providing dynamic sweep and power to epic stories like Gershwin’s Porgy And Bess, Bizet’s Carmen, Saint-Saëns’ Samson And Delilah, Verdi’s Aida and Il Trovatore or a great battle between the armies of Russia and France as depicted in Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. 

Maestro Vener and Cal Phil have assembled a team of amazing vocalists to bring these legendary tales to life. Mezzo soprano Audrey Babcock has taken the opera world by storm with her fierce Carmen, soprano Delicia Malkia Smith has performed with the likes of Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones and bass-baritone Cedric Berry is not only a Cal Phil Favorite, but a Resident Artist with the Los Angeles Opera. And to ensure a cast of thousands (hundreds, actually), the Cal Phil Chorale joins us for their second appearance with the orchestra this summer.

Get the inside scoop! Talks with the Maestro is your chance to find out interesting facts about the afternoon’s program, music in general and to ask the Maestro those musical questions you’ve always wanted answered.
