Long Beach Symphony

Founded in 1934, the Long Beach Symphony features Southern California’s finest orchestra musicians.

Under the baton of Music Director, Eckart Preu, the Symphony today presents more than 100 concerts and events a year and a rich array of education and community engagement programs that reach more than 300,000 residents from school children to senior citizens. Core to its offerings is a six-concert Classical series performed at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center – Terrace Theater as well as a five-concert POPS! series in the Long Beach Arena’s Pacific Ballroom. Education programming is highlighted by youth concert field trips, which offer 12,000 LBUSD 4th and 5th graders a chance to experience a full symphonic concert each year. In 2018, the Symphony added a new Family Concert Sunday Matinee, which is free to all children, including an outdoor musical festival.
