The Reagan Foundation is so honored to have partnered with New West Symphony on their upcoming reimagined season of digital concerts, along with engaging complementary content, reflecting the music, cultures and family traditions found in Greater Los Angeles. The season of “Global Sounds, Local Cultures” will feature eight mini-festivals to be held October through June and made available streamed or on-demand. The season is filmed at the Reagan Library and at the Bank of America Performing Arts Center in Thousand Oaks and other cultural destinations.

The opening mini-festival “A Tour of Japan” will feature LA-based violinist Anne Akiko Meyers performing the Bach Concerto for Two Violins in D minor with New West Symphony concertmaster Alyssa Park and the orchestra, conducted by Michael Christie. The program also includes a performance by Pasadena-based Makoto Taiko, a Japanese drum ensemble, San Diego-based koto performer Reiko Obata, and pianist Benjamin Krasner, a New West Symphony Quick Bowman Competition winner. All complementary content including a piano performance straight from the Reagan Library’s private quarters and a sunset performance by Makoto Taiko, Japanese drum ensemble on the Library’s South Lawn will be featured in two programs “Meet the Artists” on Saturday, October 17 at 7 pm and Sunday, October 18 at 3 pm.

Tickets can be purchased for $15 for the concert only, $25 for one mini-festival, or $160 for the entire season.
