2018 Laguna Beach Music Festival

Nicholas Phan, tenor | 2018 Guest Artistic Director

A multi-day celebration of classical and contemporary music, the 2018 Laguna Beach Music Festival offers a variety of concerts, special events and community outreach engagements.

Three concerts. Subscription packages start at $114.

OPENING NIGHT:
ROBERT, CLARA AND JOHANNES

Friday, February 9, 2018, 8pm
Laguna Playhouse

Opening night of the Laguna Beach Music Festival delves deep into one of the most fruitful musical relationships of all time, that between Robert and Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms. The program features vocal and instrumental pieces by Bach and the Schumanns, as well as Brahms' irresistibly charming set of Liebeslieder Walzer ("Love-song Waltzes"), Op. 52, for vocal quartet and piano four-hands.

DIARIES: THE ART OF THE CONFESSIONAL
Saturday, February 10, 2018, 8pm
Laguna Playhouse

Many composers have turned to diaries for texts for some of their most profound and personal utterances. This evening explores that tradition, culminating in a world premiere multimedia event built around Leoš Janácek’s powerful Diary of One Who Disappeared, with its exploration of the enduring power of love.

THE AMERICAN SPIRIT
Sunday, February 11, 2018, 3pm
Laguna Playhouse

In his final program, "The American Spirit," Nicholas Phan and special guests take listeners on a musical road trip through the great American songbook, with a few side excursions into songs influenced by our great musical traditions. The program features everything from Bernstein and Copland to Broadway, Joan Baez, and Lennon and McCartney.
