SummerFest Tickets On Sale Now


AUGUST 2-23, 2019


Music Director Inon Barnatan’s inaugural SummerFest explores and celebrates the idea of TRANSFORMATION. How do composers build on what came before them? How does one art form interact with and change another? How does transforming a physical space affect how we experience music? From honoring the great compositional masters to cross-collaborative performances and immersive experiences, Barnatan creates new ways to enhance the listener’s perspective of chamber music joined by some of the world’s most exciting performers at La Jolla Music Society’s new home, The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center. Join us and enjoy many spectacular chamber music programs, tickets and subscriptions are on sale now.

New to SummerFest: Synergy Initiative

Produced by Inon Barnatan and Clara Wu Tsai

The new Synergy Series explores the space in which music and other art forms interact. Classical musicians break barriers to collaborate with painters and visual artists, dancers, videographers, jazz musicians, theatre directors, and creative technologists for three programs highlighting the inherent symbiotic relationships between art forms.

The spirit of collaboration continues with Takeover @ the JAI, two performances featuring the most innovative compositional voices today. In 2019, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang joins us as the first guest curator for this new series in our intimate, alternative performance space.


Tickets and subscriptions are available online, through mail order, and by telephone at 858.459.3728, Monday-Friday 10 AM – 6 PM.
