In partnership with the City of San Diego’s Music in the Park Series celebrating Balboa Park’s Centennial, the San Diego Youth Symphony (SDYS) presents a special free concert as a gift to the city at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, June 18 in the Plaza de Panama. This event marks the kick-off of the Youth Symphony’s 70th Anniversary season and will be an exciting send-off event as the orchestra leaves for its China Tour, presented by Qualcomm Incorporated (June 23 to July 5).

Join us for an exciting preview of the China Tour repertoire led by SDYS Music Director Jeff Edmons, who is also celebrating his 20th year leading the Youth Symphony. The celebratory event will feature internationally acclaimed, award-winning pianist Jessie Chang, the wife of San Diego Symphony’s Music Director Jahja Ling, who will also travel with the Youth Symphony to China.
