La Jolla Music Society SummerFest one big extended family

SummerFest music director Cho-Liang “Jimmy” Lin has long thought of the annual chamber-music extravaganza in La Jolla as a big extended family. Of the approximately 70 highly accomplished musicians who are performing this year, several are making their debuts. They include Finland’s much-sought-after Olli Mustonen, who will be featured as both a pianist and composer, and the distinguished conductor David Zinman, who will lead the festival finale.

However, the majority of the musicians will be making encore performances at La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest, which runs Aug. 4 through Aug. 25. As in previous years, many of them will play pieces that are new to SummerFest’s repertoire.
