One year late, Pacific Symphony’s season finally arrives

As the pandemic eases its grip on California, the performing arts are coming back to life with surprising vigor. The latest sign: Pacific Symphony is announcing an ambitious and robust 2021-22 season that assumes live concerts will be unrestricted in the fall. … Although the orchestra will be returning to its regular home, Segerstrom Concert Hall, the pandemic has brought significant changes behind the scenes. “Teams from UC Irvine and from the industrial hygiene firm, TRC, have provided outstanding input on safety protocols and attested to outstanding quality of air handling in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall,” Pacific Symphony President John Forsyte said.
