La Jolla Music Society is about to launch the 34th annual SummerFest, its internationally respected summer music festival.

The popular event begins with “The Time Traveler’s Suite” on opening night, Friday, Aug. 2, at The Conrad, the superb new performance venue in the heart of La Jolla.

Times of San Diego caught up with the festival’s brand new music director, the virtuoso Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan, just as he was arriving in San Diego July 27.

Barnatan is here on another of his many trips to San Diego, but this time to take hands-on responsibility for the schedule of performances he has planned for the three weeks through Aug. 23.
