Like every musical organization nowadays, the Beach Cities Symphony is trying to make its way forward during this strange time. We are trying to find ways to bring music to our audience though we cannot actually perform in person. Feel free to continue to support BCSO via Facebook & Instagram. As the vaccines happen, and California begins to open up (we hope!), we hope you will consider supporting us and classical music by making a donation on our membership page. We know that it is an especially difficult time for everyone so any support at this time is most appreciated.
We are unsure at this point when we will return to making music, but we hope it is sooner rather than later. Please check back often to see the latest updates.
The Beach Cities Symphony Association believes that music enriches individuals, whether performer or member of the audience, and the community at large. We promote the musical arts by volunteering our time and talents for the enjoyment and enhancement of both performers and audience.
