Beach Cities Symphony shines with sophistication

Full story: Daily Breeze

A major reason Beach Cities Symphony has been able to attract public support of its concerts for decades is that the orchestra consistently presents extraordinary programs.

When will we get a good reviewer for these events? It has been years of this blindness and deafness. She obviously did not interview any of the audience members for their opinions, who are the reason for BCS's longevity! This music critic thinks all who performed and worked hard for this evening deserved better than this jaded review.

Musical princesses! The gowns were a nice touch of course but nice gowns are expected at these events and really should not be a focus for a musical review. It seems the writer is trying to paint a picture that takes the focus off what the true music goers are there for. I agree with the previous post....ask Beach Cities Symphony's audience next time. One opinion does not do justice to these performers and the orchestra. The time, dedication, and plain old hard work deserves more than this kind of review. Megan Chang, plays great for an 8 year old, a little too physical for my taste, which did not seem like real emotion except when she "danced" to the orchestra's parts. She obviously has talent beyond her years, but needs to calm the seas. Sabrina Kozak looked quite comfortable to me-not sure what the reviewer was looking at as I saw confidence and maturity. She was quite poised! She also handled that difficult Mozart like it was easy for her; a walk in the park. Lillian Liao was pleasant. A bit more emotion would have been nice, but she didn't appear to miss a note and seemed to enjoy being there as well. Eleanor Dunbar's fiesty performance was outstanding! I have seen this girl before and this reviewer might have suggested the orchestra try to keep up instead of trying to reduce the performer's capabilites. Jinyoung Choi did well, but sometimes there were missteps which were most likely the orchestra. While Jinyoung was a good, and confident performer, I believe Kari Sayers shows her personal bias in this review due to her "relationship" with this performer's teacher and the teacher's daughter's accomplishments. Ask the audience next time Ms. Sayers--and make sure they are not relatives or friends of the performers. Too bad we have only one reviewer in this area for fine music. We need a real music reviewer, and not a writer only. Too bad this type of music is not given its due in today's times, so the quality of the reviewing suffers as well.

Finally some interest in our local classical music scene. It is so often neglected. I guess people are too busy playing video games to appreciate quality music.

I didn't find this reviewer's words agreed with her title.
