About the New West Symphony
Led by internationally renowned music director Boris Brott, New West Symphony plays more than 30 performances for more than 50,000 people in West Los Angeles, Oxnard and Thousand Oaks and the surrounding regions.
Each year the Symphony performs for over 15,000 children, most of whom have never experienced live symphonic music. These children learn about the orchestra and its instruments in their school rooms prior to the Symphonic Adventures Concert, which is an interactive opportunity to learn and experience the excitement and beauty of classical music. New West provides young musicians the opportunity to perform in concert with our professional musicians, which pair superb young soloists with our full orchestra.
In its short eleven-year history, reviewers and audiences alike have critically acclaimed the New West Symphony. Performances regularly “sell out” as word of this outstanding ensemble spreads.
A native of Toronto and a protégé of Leonard Bernstein, Maestro Brott continues to guest conduct prestigious orchestras throughout the world and produces a summer music festival in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. As founding Music Director of the New West Symphony, he has created an orchestra of exceptional quality in Southern California that is delighting audiences from the beaches of Ventura to the Westside of Los Angeles.
Providing our community with a world-class symphony and supporting its rich educational mission is costly…and a responsibility. A world-class symphony performance is costly. Ticket sales sustain less than one-third of the cost of a performance and our annual budget. Events like this elegant wine auction dinner are essential to continue the level of performance, enhancing the quality of life in the community and providing educational opportunities for children of all ages.
