August 26, 2013 – It was a Cal Phil weekend full of awe-inspiring performances, music magic and a string of standing ovations that marked the conclusion of another successful summer season for the world-class orchestra and the building excitement for next year’s series.  

The spectacular season finale, Les Miz and Bernstein, attracted record numbers at both Festival on the Green at Santa Anita Race Track on Saturday August 24, 2013 and at Walt Disney Concert Hall on Sunday August 25. 

Randal Keith and Melissa Lyons Caldretti, stars of Les Miserables on Broadway and the National Tour, along with the Cal Phil Chorale, joined the acclaimed orchestra in an inspired selection of highlights from Les Miz, songs from Leonard Bernstein’s classics Candide and Wonderful Town and the stirring orchestral Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.

Commanding the podium with his singular style, an emotional Maestro Victor Vener expressed his gratitude to orchestra members, special guests and the audience for making this season such a resounding success and hinted of what to look forward to during Cal Phil’s 2014 summer season.

As always, the 2014 series will take place every other weekend, Saturday evenings at Festival on the Green at Santa Anita race Track and Sunday afternoons at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
