    Three Dog Night finds enduring success
    In terms of critical plaudits or recent exposure, Three Dog Night may not be the biggest name at this year's OC Fair Summer Concert Series. Still, by one mathematical formula, it's the most successful act in rock history. In 2007, when statistician...

    The symphonic sounds of summer resonated Friday night before an estimated 1,600 people who came to hear the Pacific Symphony play a free outdoor concert in Costa Mesa. The community event at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts plaza celebrated the city's...

  • Classically Trained: Vienna Philharmonic to make rare appearance

    We of the Newport-Mesa are a lucky bunch. Players of the world's great classical music come to us. That said, it's always noteworthy when one of greatest orchestras comes to our doorstep. The Vienna Philharmonic — the famed Austrian orchestra...

    Bulgaria. It's not a country that comes up often within the confines of a SoCal kid's usual conversation. But for 78 musicians of the Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra, it's on the tip of their tongues as anticipation builds for a tour of that...
