We are very excited about the 2018-2019 season, as it will be our 55th year! During this landmark year, our free concerts will feature works from Rimsky-Kosakov, Handel, Bach, Ravel and Stravinsky.

Created in 1963, the organization launched its inaugural year to provide free concerts for residents who appreciated the cultural value of beautiful music in their lives and an opportunity for local musicians to share their talents.

In an effort to see that the music genre will be kept alive for local students, the board of directors created the Youth Enrichment Program in 2002 to provide enhancement, education, classroom performances, and special daytime youth concerts.

Become a Part of the Experience
Did you know the actual cost of each concert is seventeen thousand dollars ($17,000)? In an age when support for the arts from public money is growing increasingly scarce, individual support is more vital than ever. To keep our policy of offering free quality concerts to the residents of Southern California, we need you!

Your commitment is key to enriching the symphony with the opportunity to continue assisting us with providing concerts to the local population and opening up possibilities. We encourage you to give any amount so that we can continue to build the jewel of La Mirada.
