Pacific Symphony conductor Carl St. Clair with KUSC’s Brian Lauritzen on stage for a KUSC Night at Pacific Symphony

Classical KUSC is partnering with Pacific Symphony to present a series of Friday-night concerts designed to be fun and enjoyable while at the same time, deepening your understanding of the music. Each evening will be hosted by a KUSC host who will guide you through the program — and be sure to stay after the performance for the after-party!

Join us for our third KUSC Night at Pacific Symphony as KUSC’s Brian Lauritzen hosts Tchaikovsky’s “Pathétique” Symphony on October 18th.

Drama unfolds with Tchaikovsky’s deeply passionate Symphony No. 6 and Ravel’s virtuosic gypsy rhapsody, “Tzigane,” featuring concertmaster Dennis Kim. Earlier in the evening, you’ll embark on an exploration of the brilliant compositions from legendary film composer John Williams, who is responsible for linking Carl to Pacific Symphony.
