2023 LEXUS CHAMPIONS FOR CHARITY NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Those with a passion for golf can appreciate the qualities of balance, grace, and precision – words that aptly describe Lexus automobiles. Those who play the game also appreciate the virtues of competition, generosity, and charity all of which can be found in the Lexus Champions for Charity Program. Beginning with 63 events in 1989, Lexus Champions for Charity has helped raise over $500 million for worthy causes throughout the country. This year, the program will assist charitable organizations at over 100 events nationwide. Lexus Champions for Charity pairs great golf with philanthropy, as amateur golfers participate in tournaments held at the finest golf and country clubs throughout the United States. Lexus supports the local tournaments by making a donation to each associated charity, while offering competitors the opportunity to win a Lexus and represent their charity in the annual Lexus Champions for Charity National Championship at Pebble Beach Resorts in December. The charities represented by the Top 3 Net Division and Top 3 Gross Division teams will divide a $60,000 purse, with the winning net and gross team claiming $15,000 for its hometown charity.

Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1

Welcome June and the leading edge of summer! Our final concert begins with Anton Bruckner’s rousing “Romantic” Symphony, so named by Bruckner himself and inspired by his vision of a day in the life of a medieval village from dawn to dusk. The audience will hear the morning horn call welcoming the day ahead, the thundering hooves of mounted knights departing the castle, the frenzy of a hunt, and the revelry of a village meal and festival to end the long and eventful day. Then, the Symphony closes this concert and its 2023-2024 season with the help of Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, who gave the world perhaps the second-most well-known four-note opening salvo in the classical music canon with the opening notes of his Piano Concerto no.1, among the most popular and most performed piano concertos. Virtuoso pianist Awadagin Pratt – famed for his formidable technique as well as his love for pranking and colorful concert attire – joins the Symphony for a fiery finish. Don’t miss this scintillating season finale.

Brahms Requiem

Our March concert bids a fond farewell to the dark days and starry night skies of winter – and, by the way, don’t forget to turn your clocks forward one hour after this concert for Daylight Savings on Sunday, March 10th – with a program that celebrates the nature of the universe, and the place music holds within it. French composer Guillaume Connesson’s fascinating Cosmic Trilogy explores the entire span of existence as we know it, posing question after musical question and offering gorgeous responses. Ralph Vaughn Williams’ Serenade to Music offers a ravishing paean to the music of the spheres, which reportedly brought audience member Igor Stravinsky to tears at its premiere performance. To conclude a mystical evening, prepare to enjoy Johannes Brahms’ magnificent masterpiece for soloists, chorus, and orchestra, his incandescent Deutsches Requiem. Join your Long Beach Symphony for an early celebration of Spring and new beginnings!

Pictures at an Exhibition

A night of emotional warmth and vibrant colors awaits audiences in this concert program, tailor-made to combat the dark, cold, mid-February winter blues. Concert Overture No.2 by Florence Price, with its welcoming themes from popular Spirituals and more than a passing nod to American patriotism, will get things going. The passion continues when Long Beach Symphony’s own Cécilia Tsan takes center stage in Antonín Dvořák’s ardent cello concerto, beloved both for the deeply felt emotion it evokes in audiences and for the showmanship and mastery it showcases in its soloist. Modest Mussorgsky’s vivid Pictures at an Exhibition completes the evening’s program. Originally composed for piano solo, the stunningly creative work was later arranged for full orchestra forty years after Mussorgsky’s death by Maurice Ravel to immediate and enduring high praise. From the wistful whimsy of The Gnome to the kibbitzing of Two Polish Jews and concluding with the majesty of The Great Gate of Kiev, Mussorgsky’s musical visualization of a Russian gallery of paintings always delights.
