Jeff Smith 4 p.m., Aug. 28
La Jolla Symphony & Chorus
Steven Schick conducts the orchestra in a concert titled “Old Worlds/New World,” that looks both at music influenced by the Old Worlds of Europe and ancient China, and new-world America.
The concert begins with Chinese-American composer Chou Wen-chung’s Landscapes paired with Edgard Varèse’s tribute to his adopted home, Amériques. The program will conclude with Richard Strauss’s incredible Horn Concerto No. 2, with soloist Nicolee Kuester, the 2011 Young Artists Winner.
