Costa Mesa in Southern California has the most inspiring venue to appreciate the classics.  If you don’t want to fight the traffic to LA or you simply want to enjoy what SoCal has to offer and get out of downtown LA, Pacific Symphony has arranged some of the most sophisticated programs at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Henry T. Segerstrom was a visionary, legendary developer and innovative philanthropist who brought business and culture to Orange County. Segerstrom’s vision, combined with his and his family’s generosity, led to the establishment of the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, a world-renowned center of culture and the arts.
