Festival Orchestra 1

Saturday, July 9, 7:30 PM PDT

$15 – $35

Festival Orchestra with violinist Yevgeny Kutik

Maestro Allan Pollack will open the Festival with The Phoenix, his new composition that celebrates the victory of life over death and hope over despair. Yevgeny Kutik will solo in Prokofiev’s ethereal Violin Concerto No. 1. The concert will conclude with Beethoven’s rhythmic and lively Symphony No. 7.

Pollack, The Phoenix
Prokofiev, Violin concerto No. 1
Beethoven, Symphony No. 7

For 2022, the Festival’s main stage is again temporarily transplanted from our signature Tent Concert Hall in Mendocino Headlands State Park to the beautiful, iconic and historic 1938 Cotton Auditorium in nearby Fort Bragg. We’re pleased to also welcome the return of more intimate concerts in Preston Hall, our smaller Mendocino venue. While we’d hoped to be back in the Tent Concert Hall this year, the combination of pandemic-related disruptions in the availability of vital resources (such as labor) and lingering uncertainty about public health conditions this summer would have made that an unacceptably risky proposition. Meanwhile, work is under way toward our 2023 return to our home since 1985, the Tent Concert Hall on the Mendocino Headlands.

Proof of completed COVID-19 vaccination, including at least one booster, is required, and masks must be properly worn at all times while on event premises. Though it might exceed official requirements, this policy is based on current conditions and the results of our most recent audience survey.
