Extraordinary performance by Chicago Symphony launches La Jolla Music Society 2017-18 season
The Chicago Symphony Orchestra played Schubert, Mozart and Schumann in Copley Symphony Hall on Wednesday evening, presented by La Jolla Music Society. Joan and Irwin Jacobs, whose generosity sparked the creation of the Jacobs Music Center and the ongoing success of our own San Diego Symphony, were in the audience to receive well-earned applause for sponsoring this concert. Jacobs celebrated his birthday Wednesday, and what better gift could there have been than this concert, played to a sold-out house, its upper levels packed with participants in LJMS’ Education Program, students of all ages with teachers and parents.
