The La Jolla Music Society is pulling out all the stops for April’s jubilee grand-opening weekend of its $78.5 million Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center.

The cornerstone of the nonprofit organization’s ongoing 50th anniversary season, the new center’s opening will feature concerts April 5-7 by an all-star lineup of classical music, jazz, pop and dance artists that is being publicly announced today.

The complete lineup and ticket information appear below.

Confirmed performers range from Grammy Award-winning singer Seal, the Miró Quartet and ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro to violin star Hilary Hahn, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet and neo-swing band The Hot Sardines, whose April 7 show is already sold out.

The diversity of artists is designed to showcase both the society’s annual programming eclecticism and the new center itself.
