Around the World in 24 Days: La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest 2017 to have international flair

The 31st annual La Jolla Music Society SummerFest series promises to take concert-goers around the world without leaving La Jolla, Aug. 2-25. It features more than a dozen concerts, 23 artist debuts and two premieres that will showcase music from other countries at venues such as UC San Diego Department of Music’s Conrad Prebys Concert Hall and Irwin M. Jacobs Qualcomm Hall, as well as community events in The Village. Single concert tickets are $45-$75 and festival subscriptions are $450-$865.

Cho-Liang Lin returns as musical director, but SummerFest 2017 will be the first with Kristin Lancino at the helm of La Jolla Music Society as president and artistic director.

Of the annual concert series, Lancino said, “La Jolla Music Society SummerFest is a must-go, must-hear concert event in an intimate setting, with some of the finest international performers and performances. It’s an extraordinary collection of artists you aren’t going to hear anywhere else and one of the leading summer events in the country.”
