Pacific Symphony Plays Vivaldi’s Four Seasons Featuring Violinist Philippe Quint at Soka Performing Arts Center

Aliso Viejo, CA – Pacific Symphony will perform Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons featuring violinist Philippe Quint at Soka Performing Arts Center on Sunday, January 21, 2018, at 3:00 p.m. as part of the Sundays at Soka Series. Tickets are $50 for adults; and $40 for students, seniors, and active military families; and $37 each for groups of 10 or more.

Grammy-nominated Russian-American violinist Philippe Quint is lauded for his “searingly poetic lyricism” (Daily Telegraph, UK). Quint will lead the orchestra performing a program of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. These informal concerts by the Pacific Symphony are perfect for newcomers to the classical music scene.

The Pacific Symphony, led by Music Director Carl St.Clair for 28 years, has been the resident orchestra of the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall for over a decade. Currently in its 39th season, the Symphony is the largest orchestra formed in the United States in the last 50 years and is recognized as an outstanding ensemble making strides on both the national and international scene, as well as in its own community of Orange County.

Quint’s impassioned musical desire for reimagining traditional works and commissioning new works, his dedication to exploring different styles and genres, and his award-winning discography has solidified him as one of the foremost violinists of today. Receiving several Grammy nominations for his two albums of Korngold and William Schuman concertos, Quint is in constant demand worldwide appearing with major orchestras at venues ranging from the Gewandhaus in Leipzig to Carnegie Hall in New York. Quint has organized and performed in multiple benefit concerts and received the “Ambassador of Arts” award in 2014, presented by Brownstone and Gateway Organizations at the United Nations.

Born in Leningrad, Soviet Union (now St. Petersburg, Russia), Quint studied at Moscow’s Special Music School for the Gifted with the famed Russian violinist Andrei Korsakov, and made his orchestral debut at the age of nine, performing Wieniawski’s Concerto No. 2. After moving to the United States, he earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Juilliard School.
