Under the Influence
Friday, July 29 – Friday, August 26, 2022
at The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center
La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest returns to The Conrad, expanded to four glorious weeks!
Music Director Inon Barnatan has created an ambitious program, evocatively titled “Under the Influence,” exploring the muses that seduced and inspired some of the greatest composers in musical history.
During the Festival, we’ll hear the magnetic effect of Wagner and J.S. Bach on their peers, travel to the salons of Paris, and experience the sins and merry pranks of Kurt Weill and Strauss. We’ll spend a genre-defying and unique week with opera stars, dancers, and jazz luminaries, and go further under the influence in a new intermission-free Wednesday series that welcomes audiences into the worlds of Shakespeare, Vivaldi, and Cécile McLorin Salvant followed by a social and culinary experience in the Wu Tsai QRT.yrd.
Garrick Ohlsson, Augustin Hadelich, Liza Ferschtman, Marc-André Hamelin, Caroline Shaw, Carter Brey, Joyce Yang, Anthony Roth Costanzo, Cécile McLorin Salvant, the Dover and Miró Quartets, and many more astounding artists will join us in La Jolla for a Festival you won’t want to miss.
