Booking the performers and heading the board of directors for one of San Diego’s oldest and most respected arts organizations is serious business.

But Leah Rosenthal and Katherine Chapin have good reason to sound doubly giddy when they discuss the La Jolla Music Society’s upcoming 2018-19 season.

Their excitement stems from more than the star-packed lineup, which ranges from Japanese-born violinist Midori and Russian piano sensation Daniil Trifonov to sitar virtuoso Anoushka Shankar and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

Not only does the new season mark the 50th anniversary of the La Jolla Music Society, it will also usher in the debut of the nonprofit arts organization’s new La Jolla home, the $78.5 million Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center.
