    Composers have their time in spotlight

    Concert Review: Krall's approach a bit jarring

    Krall dips into the long-ago past
    It's a bit of technology whose name might elicit a puzzled look from millennials, and it sounded — scratchily — over the phone from Diana Krall's apartment. Those familiar with the history of vinyl will know that 78 rpm records, or 78s,...

    Philharmonic Society announces 2014-15 season

  • A new season for Midtown Men

    A new season for Midtown Men
    The Midtown Men bicker all the way to the stage — as brothers might. The singers could be arguing about which socks look best or which attorney to bring on board, and the next instant, they're straightening ties or tossing towels to one another....

    Review: Boz Scaggs show brings house down
    Boz Scaggs' show Sunday at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts featured a riveting performance by a singer who galvanized the room, brought the audience to its feet and turned one of Orange County's stateliest venues into something close to a mosh pit....
  • Classically Trained: Seeing off a career in style

    Visits from the Vienna Philharmonic and the Boston Pops Orchestra are a few of the highlights ahead in the 2013-14 Philharmonic Society of Orange County concert season. The season for the Irvine-based nonprofit, which has presented world-class music...
  • Classically Trained: A night (or three) with a Puccini classic
