Guest Conductor Anthony Parnther Concert Notes

One Reviewer Wrote...

The one word to describe the San Bernardino Symphony Concert last Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017, is “exciting!”

Just a look at the stage with the full orchestra assembling, and two raised towers for the Big Drum, and on the other side of the stage, colorful bongos and a gong (later used during the concert.) Maestro Anthony Parnther, took command center stage to a round of applause. All the music was stirring, beginning with Aaron Copeland’s Fanfare for the Common Man.

Then the Tchaikovsky played brilliantly, received a standing ovation. After intermission, the audience was ready for the very special California premier of Big Sur: the Night Sun, with exciting >> Read full review

Concert Notes

Saturday, April 21, 2018 - 7:30pm

Sturgess Theater Of Performing Arts, 780 N E St Ste 8, San Bernardino, California 92410

Legendary dancer, director and choreographer Gene Kelly brought astonishing grace and athleticism to the movies. His engaging onscreen personality is so accessible we feel like we know him. In fact, we know very little about the man who created some of the most iconic moments in film history.

Patricia Kelly, his wife and biographer, takes us behind the scenes in this unique one-woman performance and shares a deeply moving and intimate portrait of the innovative artist, with rare and familiar film clips, previously unreleased audio recordings, personal memorabilia, and insights culled from her hours of interviews and conversations with her husband.

Call (909) 381-5388 and allow us to assist you in choosing the perfect seat.
