PACIFIC SYMPHONY BRINGS THE BELOVED MUSICAL FAVORITES FROM THE ENCHANTING LAND OF OZ TO 2018-19 POPS SEASON WITH BROADWAY STARS AS GUEST ARTISTS
Orange County, Calif.—Oct. 22, 2018—“Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore,” Dorothy said upon stepping into the color-filled landscape of Oz bringing the magic of Technicolor pictures to moviegoers in the 1930s. Since then “The Wizard of Oz” has become a beloved classic with numerous adaptations including two re-interpretations of the Broadway stage, “Wicked” and “The Wiz.” Pacific Symphony will bring the “Music of Oz” to life with vocalists Kelli Rabke, Law Dunford, Scott Coulter and pianist John Boswell on Nov. 9-10, led by Principal Pops conductor Richard Kaufman. The orchestra will play selected songs from each of the productions, including some of the beloved classics such as “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “Defying Gravity.”
Both performances start at 8 p.m. in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, with doors opening at 6:45 p.m. There will be one 20-minute intermission scheduled for each performance. This concert is a part of the Pacific Symphony’s 2018-19 Pops series that celebrates “popular music’s most enduring favorites,” sponsored by The Westin, PBS SoCal, and K-Earth 101. Single tickets for the “The Wonderful Music of Oz” concert start at $45. For more information on the concert or to purchase tickets call (714) 755-5799 or visit the website, www.PacificSymphony.org.
